Don’t call it a children’s show. Like The Princess Bride or even the classic Warner Brothers cartoons, Stefanie Hero by Mark Medoff (whose award-winning Children of a Lesser God was decidedly adult) engages and entertains on several levels, for audiences of all ages.
“It’s in the form of a fairy tale, with knights and dragons, wizards and magic,” said director Jyl Hewston, “and it has all the fantasy and action that appeals to children. But there’s a lot of humor and interactions that only teenagers, university students and other adults will get. So it entertains everyone.”
