By Matriark Theatre

Urza and The Song in the Dark is a brand-new story for young people set in a subterranean wonderland of complex caves, underground lakes, fantastical creatures, and myths waiting to be discovered.

One day, a mysterious song leads a young girl named Urza on an adventure into the depths of the earth. Along the way she befriends a lost explorer, gets pursued by a mysterious, dark force, and finds herself caught up in a primeval story that may just lead to her saving the world.

Devised for children and kidults 7+, Urza and The Song in the Dark brings together amazing puppetry, live songs and original music, and stunningly layered shadow visuals to take audiences on an epic journey they won’t soon forget.

Join Matriark Theatre as they reveal their unique approach to shadow puppetry, physical performance and shadow play in a hands-on experience that will allow your students to bring a world of their own creations to life.
