The sultan, the secret, and the witch
(FORMERLY TITLED THE BOY WHO KEPT A SECRET)
2019 show for all camps
The Sultan, the Secret and the Witch is a musical loosely based on the Hungarian folk tale The Boy Who Kept A Secret. A girl’s mother is kidnapped by soldiers, and she must find her while keeping three secrets. On her way, local townsfolk, pirates, an evil sultan, and a witch all try to wrest the secret from her. The story follows her adventures as she strives to keep this secret even in high adversity, and prevent a war between the sultan and the innocents the Sultan is targeting.
Originally performed in 2008, The Boy Who Kept A Secret got a major upgrade in 2015, with all-new songs, characters, and a mostly new storyline. The 2019 version is a modification of the 2015 show.
