BYMT’s new production of The Legend of White Bear Lake is a haunting musical inspired by a Native American tale from Minnesota.
Two teenagers from rival tribes fall in love and must fight to keep their relationship a secret, rowing to the middle of the lake each night to meet each other. The legend of the white bear is passed down to each generation and warns that the two tribes must not mix or a giant bear will wake from his slumber and attack the tribes. When the secret relationship is discovered, a battle breaks out. One night when the lake is frozen over, the bear appears and viciously attacks the young lovers. The tribes must decide if they can come together to defeat the mysterious white bear.
Dark and atmospheric, The Legend of White Bear Lake features an ethereal score, breath-taking movement to bring the legend to life.
