This family-friendly light opera, sung entirely in English, is about a woman named Strega Nona who has a magical touch with food. Her helper, Big Anthony, is tempted to try his own hand at magic when Strega Nona leaves town. Can he resist the temptation? This story is a great way to learn about the importance of paying attention and respecting other people’s property. Based on a children’s book by Tomi DePaola, the performance is intended for children in grades 2 through 8.

The program is presented with the generous support of the Friends of the Bob Lutts Fulshear/Simonton Branch Library. Proceeds from the Friends of the Library book sales and annual membership dues help to underwrite the costs of special programming and various cultural events at the Bob Lutts Fulshear/Simonton Branch Library.

A free hand-stamp, available starting one hour prior to the performance, is required for admission.

The performance is free and open to the public. For more information, see the Fort Bend County Libraries website (, or call the Bob Lutts Fulshear/Simonton Branch Library (281-633-4675) or the library’s Communications Office (281-633-4734).
