In-person only. The Powers family suffers from a rare inherited condition-- their babies are stolen away by a fairy. Megan Powers wants to defy the odds, but her brother, Luther, has to stop her wedding at any cost, even if it means revealing the secret, magical world beneath the city of Austin to an outsider. When he teams up with a love-struck magician to defeat the Wicked Child, Luther discovers a startling truth and unleashes a danger that cannot be controlled. CHANGELINGS blends fantasy and adventure, exuberant spectacle and original music, a cast full of Austin's finest and a lot of 1980's fantasy movie references to ask profound questions about the making of children and the making of monsters. The VORTEX debuted Reina Hardy’s astrophysical romantic comedy, STARS AND BARMEN, in 2013. It was nominated for 5 B. Iden Payne Awards, including Outstanding Original Script. The VORTEX is pleased to present the World Premiere of Hardy’s next visionary piece.
