The Longest Night: A Winter's Tale

Dec 5, 6, 12, 13, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 26

The Morehead Planetarium hosts "The Longest Night: A Winter's Tale", a one-of-a-kind fulldome planetarium show that captures its audience with a timeless fable of courage, generosity and renewal. The story explores the concept that winter is a time for Earth to rest, waiting for new growth in the spring. Its star, a young girl born into a family of nomadic storytellers, embarks on a simple quest that leads her to a dragon's nest. What will she discover there, and how will it help her save her village? Morehead collaborated with Paperhand Puppet Intervention to develop the story and visuals of "The Longest Night."
