The popular novel The Neverending Story by Michael Ende will come to life at the Main Street Theater in Galena Park, a Houston, suburb of Texas. 17 Houston area children will perform the play, which has been adapted for the stage by David S. Craig.
Atreyu and Falkor are central characters in a story that begins when Bastian discovers an unusual book in dusty bookshop.
