Sarah Hicks, conductor
The great Peter Falk narrates the romantic tale of the beautiful maiden, Buttercup, and her one true love, a young farm hand named Westley. After Westley's captured by a ruthless pirate and presumed dead, Buttercup’s unhappy marriage to the horrible Prince Humperdinck seems inevitable. But before the wedding can take place, she’s kidnapped by three outlaws and it’s up to a mysterious Man in Black to come to her rescue. Missing this cinematic concert experience would be inconceivable! So, in the words of Miracle Max… “Have fun stormin’ the castle!”
