Peter Pan opening youth series
Peter Pan will be opening this year’s 2008 series of theatre for young people at The ACT.
Imagine hilarious fairy tales and classic stories starring members of the audience.
The classic story of Peter Pan is adapted by Dufflebag Theatre through interactive storytelling creating a spontaneous and energizing theatre experience for all ages.
Just when the audience becomes enthralled by the story — a twist is created. Before your very eyes, students (and maybe even a teacher) are asked to come up on stage and join in the action.
Peter Pan will be at The ACT Jan. 28 at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Every year The ACT presents exciting and professional plays designed for elementary school aged audiences.
Another scheduled performance for the year is The Boy Who Learned to Fly, which takes place Thursday, Apr. 3 at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.
The play is about a boy named Aaron who is forced out-of-doors by his mother, and away from his cyber world.
Angry at being cast outside, Aaron finds amusement in wreaking havoc in the garden of the old man who lives next door.
The elderly neighbour, a former circus performer from Germany, catches and confronts the boy. Through their blossoming relationship, Aaron is nudged out of his computer games — induced fog, and into the physical world of the circus.
For more than 30 years, Kaleidoscope Theatre has brought high quality professional theatre to young audiences across the country, and around the world.
