Act-It UP! Community Theatre of Cuyahoga Falls in collaboration with FamFest USA, Cleveland, Ohio, presents "Ultimus Veneficus, The Last of the Sorcerers," written and directed by Fred Anthony Taylor.
The story is a fairy tale about a young boy named Timothy (Jaden Haller) and his brother, Jacob (Laura McWilliams) who find themselves enmeshed in the struggle of good and evil. Timothy finds a pair of magical keys outside the King's castle and uses the power of the keys to fight off Wizards and Sorcerers. The telling of the story is accompanied by music, dance and riveting sword-fighting.
