An Allegorical Tale of the Gospel


KINGSPORT, Tenn., April 19, 2018 Step inside the fantastical imagination of a little girl named Ellie, as her inspired dream takes you on an adventure to the Land of Light! This April, the gifted young cast of the LampLight Theatre G.L.O.W. Children’s Theatre program will present a tale of love that goes beyond the common man, told through the familiar eyes of a little girl’s playtime dolls. The myriad of magical characters that inhabit this allegorical tale will bring the mystery of the Gospel to life for the young and old alike!


While Ellie sleeps, she dreams that her favorite Sissy doll and other toys fall under her bed and enter the beautiful, yet mysterious, Land of Light. Having come to life in this imaginary dream world, Ellie’s multifarious dolls apprehensively wander through a whimsical forest. Whilst on their journey, the dolls encounter the ruler of the land, the evil Queen Morose. Morose captures the band of toys and threatens to keep them all from returning home to their owner, Ellie, unless one of the dolls agrees to stay behind in everyone else’s stead. Seeing the Queen’s malicious nature, and knowing the fate of her friends, Sissy doll chooses to stay and face the Queen so her friends can escape. Will anyone be able to rescue Sissy and set her free? What will happen to Ellie’s beloved doll? Come and find out in this magical tale, Come Alive!
