Commissioned by The Canadian Musical Theatre Project and workshopped at Sheridan in 2015, Theatre Sheridan is pleased to present a full stage production of this magical musical.

This musical fable tells the story of Senza Luce, a village deep in the mountains of Northern Italy. Hidden from the outside world and shadowed over by the towering peaks of the Italian Alps, the villagers of Senza Luce have lived in perpetual darkness for centuries, never knowing sunlight. When one forward thinking youth devises a brilliant way to bring light to their darkened lives, the village and its citizens are thrown into turmoil.
