Mudd Butts offers a vehicle to link with the mythic foundations that make us human and give life meaning. Our modern world can seem overwhelmingly complex and difficult. We believe that music, dance and theater offer a kind of open door that can provide a powerful transition from the magic of childhood into a balanced and creative lifetime. This year’s show was “Robin Hood.”
