LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – The NeverEnding Story is being presented this week at The Studio Theatre in downtown.

It’s based upon the novel by Michael Ende, the tale of a young boy who becomes lost in a magical book. It was also adapted into a beloved 1984 film.

Our Haylee Brooks dropped by the theatre during KARK 4 News at 4PM Tuesday to find out more about the production, which runs through May 19.

More about the story:
Told with all the thrills of a classic adventure, the story begins with Bastian, a lonely boy, who stumbles into a bookshop where he discovers a curious book—The Neverending Story. Bastian hides in the attic of his school and begins to read, and a huge adventure surges into life. 

Fantastica, a land of stories, is being destroyed by the Nothing. The Childlike Empress has chosen Atreyu, a young hunter, to be the Hero of the Great Quest. Atreyu, an orphan, is an unlikely choice, but he accepts and, with his horse and companion, Artax, rides to face the menace. First, he experiences the Nothing and discovers its thoughtless destruction. Then he is guided by a dream to the Swamps of Sadness where he meets Morla, the Ancient One, who reveals another solution. He must find the Childlike Empress a new name. 

With this new direction, Atreyu faces Ygramul the Many, befriends Falkor the Luck Dragon, and solves the riddles of the three magic gates to meet Uyulala. From her he learns that only a human child can give the Empress a new name. In despair he faces his final test—the werewolf Gmork—and returns to the Childlike Empress without a new name. However, his quest has attracted a human child. It is Bastian himself who calls out a new name for the Empress, and the story rushes to its triumphant and moving conclusion.
