About Taking Flight

We have been telling stories for as long as history can see, and we will likely continue to do so for the rest of our lives. Once in a lifetime a new story is found, told, and shared… Now it is Castle Vale’s time. In a time between times, encounter the Destroyers. A wild bunch of greedy wrongdoers who set out to finish what they started and claim the land and all its treasures for themselves. But destruction never truly wins where hope lies.

Let Taking Flight steal an hour of your day and take you on a journey, to a performance of raw emotion, creativity, and circus.
