Ephemeral Productions’ Page to Stage is a family-friendly show exploding with creativity as some of our favorite children's books come to life on the stage.

Highly trained movement specialists, they are artists-in-residence at the University of South Dakota. They are recipients of numerous grants and awards, and have been on the South Dakota Arts Council’s touring program since 1984. Performance dates and times:
