The Billy-croquette is a small circus-fanfare composed of an accordionist and herThe Billy-croquette is a small circus-fanfare composed of an accordionist and her mechanical animals. Little by little, her toys gain autonomy. Who is in charge? Who is
in control? The fanfarist must deal with devices both endearing and unpredictable. Physical theatre, humour, and puppetry shape this sweet story filled with lively music and disobedient machines.

A Christmas Carol

DUFFLEBAG THEATRE, ONTARIO

Penny-pinching miser, Ebenezer Scrooge, is well-known across Victorian London for being far more interested in making money than friends. Above all else, he hates Christmas time and its spirit of giving. But on one particular Christmas Eve, several spirits give Ebenezer the surprise of his life, as they whisk him off on a magical journey through past, present and future, to show him the true meaning of the season. From Fezziwig to Tiny Tim, all the favourites are included in DuffleBag Theatre’s exuberant version of the Charles Dickens yuletide classic!

Felicity Falls

RAG & BONE PUPPET THEATRE, ONTARIO

 

This adaptation combines puppetry by Grace Kiely and Neasa Ní Chuanaigh with stunning puppets by Suse Reibish. With a magical original score by Colm Mac Con Iomaire and directed by Marc Mac Lochlainn. Branar’s signature storytelling creates a show which remind us all to follow our dreams.

Once upon a time a group of animals had to find a new place to live. They crossed grey, rocky mountains and found a green valley, a blue river and a small waterfall. The valley had everything they needed, so they built houses there, and a mill — and they called their village “Felicity Falls”. Rag & Bone Puppet Theatre delivers warm funny stories about life’s little problems – like a lost teddy bear or a leaky roof. In a series of short stories, the show follows the everyday lives of a group of animals as they build their home and their community in the Ottawa Valley.

The Happy Prince, A Radio Play

SKELETON KEY THEATRE, ONTARIO

Join us for this classic Oscar Wilde adaptation of The Happy Prince! Under the careful
direction of Skeleton Key’s award-winning Kate Smith, comes this magical “radio play”
presented for a live audience. Come and experience the drama and fun of a radio
show in this one time only performance, Sunday, November 20.

A young swallow meets the Happy Prince, a gilded statue that has never experienced
sorrow. After viewing people suffering in poverty, the Happy Prince asks the swallow to
take his jewels, all of his adornments, and give them to the poor. The moral of the story
is that true happiness comes from leading a good and compassionate life, even if
means making material sacrifices. Wilde’s stories give young people and adults a
renewed sense of the good in humanity.
