For the fourth year in a row, KVSC Radio in partnership with GREAT Theatre is proud to present…Sasparella Trauffea is Dancing!, an original radio play written by local playwright, Meg Mechelke. This project is funded in part by a grant from the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Legacy Fund.
Sasparella Trauffea is dancing…and she won’t stop! In this loose adaptation of the somewhat historical events of the Dancing Plague of 1518, the residents of a small town must deal with the consequences of a runaway father, an ostentatious mayor, and, of course, the brazen dancing of the Trauffea girl.
Add to the mix a lovesick confectioner and a hasty engagement, and you’ve got the recipe for a rollicking adventure of a radio show that the whole family will love!
We are thrilled to broadcast this original production, and we hope you enjoy the show!
