THE UGLY DUCKLING
November 10, 2018

Of the five eggs in Mother Duck’s nest, one is the largest and last to hatch. Bigger and paler than the others, this last hatchling is treated as an outsider by Mother Duck and her ducklings. He may be the best swimmer of the brood, but this alone is not enough to ensure his acceptance. Knowing only rejection, this Ugly Duckling goes out into the wild alone. Reflecting upon his plight under the glow of a remote willow tree, he sees a wily cat creeping in the direction of Mother Duck’s nest. The Ugly Duckling follows and watches as one lagging duckling is captured and taken back to the cat’s lair. In true heroic fashion, this Ugly Duckling succeeds in vanquishing the cat and rescuing the captured duckling. Celebrated by Mother Duck and her ducklings for his uniqueness, all realize that he may have been an ugly duckling, but he has grown into a beautiful and powerful swan. In an age when television, computers and video games reign supreme, the folks at Lightwire Theater (in conjunction with Corbian Visual Arts and Dance) use incredible electroluminescent puppetry to tell the story of THE UGLY DUCKLING. Based on the original Hans Christian Andersen tales, this visually entrancing stage production offers hope to us all as we root for the ugly duckling who exemplifies resilience and heroism along the way to becoming a beautiful swan. Recommended for ages 5 and up.

November 18, 2018

Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia’s elegant stage adaptation of Eric Carle’s beloved work has made theatre history, both in Nova Scotia and throughout North America. With its objective of introducing very little children to their first performing arts experience, the production has served as well to encourage literacy and the love of reading, and has acquainted thousands of young people and their parents with Nova Scotia and its talented artists. THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR & OTHER ERIC CARLE FAVOURITES includes the story of the Very Hungry Caterpillars metamorphosis into a beautiful butterfly; the fanciful account of Little Clouds travels through the sky; and the Mixed-Up Chameleon’s discovery of his own unique nature. Directed and designed by Jim Morrow, who ranks among Canada’s most esteemed puppetry creators, the triple-bill show incorporates evocative original music by Nova Scotian composer Steven Naylor, and innovative “black light” staging techniques which highlight Morrow’s stunning puppets and props. The work follows closely the books from which they are adapted, providing a new generation with a seamless entry into the world of theatre and music. This production is specifically designed for children with an autism spectrum disorder, other sensory processing diagnoses, and other special needs. You can expect a reduction of loud or jarring sounds, the absence of flashing or strobe lighting on stage, modification of house lights during the performance, and a judgement-free environment where all patrons can feel free to vocalize or move around the theatre if they need to. At no time, will anyone be asked to leave the performance due to sound, movement or behaviors related to differing cognitive/developmental abilities. It is our hope that this production will make attending the theatre an enjoyable experience for all children and families.

THE YOUNG KING
May 9-12, 2019

Journey in wonder to a land of challenging choices & rich rewards. From the moment you arrive at the Arts Annex, you become a part of the story. Once there was a princess who dearly loved a poor woodland man. For this, she was banished by her father, the King. The couple had a baby. But he was stolen away in the night. The Princess and her woodlander died, brokenhearted. The baby boy was raised by a goatherd in a deep forest. Years passed and the King neared the end of his life. He called for his grandson to be brought to the palace. “You are not a young goatherd,” he said, “you are the Young King.”
And the Young King gladly threw aside his rough goatherd’s cloak and staff. He embraced the glittering riches of the palace. For his coronation, the Young King demanded the most rare and costly silks and jewels for his robe, scepter and crown. On the eve of his coronation, in his velvet-canopied bed, the Young King was visited by three dreams. In the first, pale, crooked children bent over looms of golden thread to weave the King’s robe. In the second, a slave drew his last breath diving for pearls for the King’s scepter. And in the third, a deep mining pit of disease and famine brought forth rubies for the King’s crown. The Young King awoke in deep distress. He shunned the robe, scepter and crown and reached instead for his humble goatherd’s cloak and staff. He made a circlet of briar thorns for his head. His courtiers beseeched him: “how shall the people know you are King?” The townsfolk laughed, then grew angry: “Don’t you know, from your luxury comes our living?” In turmoil, the Young King walked away from the palace to the edge of the city. He walked to where the forest began. And as the woodland welcomed him, he felt his heart and his step lighten. He turned to face the people one last time. And the sunlight beamed down and wove about him a robe brighter than gold, and his staff blossomed with lilies whiter than pearls, and his circlet of briar bloomed with roses redder than rubies. And he, and all the world around, knew he was King. What kind of king or queen would you be? The Young King’s courtiers will teach you how to greet the king before whisking you up to be part of the coronation. Journey with the Young King to a land of challenging choices and rich rewards. In this production, the beautiful and tender language of Oscar Wilde joins the intimate, immersive and magical world of Slingsby Theatre Company from Australia. Recommended for ages 8 and up.
