McGregor & Friends and The Foundation for Education (in partnership with 14/19 Campaign and Blyth Festival) presents ‘A Bunch of Munsch’ adapted for the stage from the stories of Robert Munsch by Duncan McGregor.
From April 9-18, 2018 this new stage adaptation of 5 of Robert Munsch’s stories will be presented at the Blyth Memorial Hall for school matinee audiences. The producer/director is Duncan McGregor who has presented young audience productions at Blyth before including ‘Charlotte’s Web’ (2015), ‘Peter And The Wolf” (2014) and ‘Let’s Do Munsch’ (2016). Those performances were attended by over 20,000 school children and their teachers. This year it’s ‘A Bunch of Munsch’.
Over a dozen actors (including young people from local schools plus adult performers all supported by professional designers and director) will present these well-loved stories.
This production is being done in support of student enrichment through the Foundation for Education Huron Perth. The show consists of ‘Angela’s Airplane’, Stephanie’s Ponytail’, ‘Something Good’, ‘Love You Forever’ and ‘Mortimer’.
Please see the poster.
“The stage adaptations remain true to Robert’s stories and to them we’ve added the lively music and sound effects of composer Arlene Darnbrough performed by musician Suzanne MacVicar, the costumes of Sherri Milburn, and the lighting of Ross Barnett, all experienced theatre professionals”, states director Duncan McGregor. “We want to tickle your funny bone, share these adventures and touch your heart as only a Munsch story can.”
The show is ideal for kids aged 4 to 11 and tickets are $8.
Reservations can be made by calling the Blyth Festival Box Office at 1-877-862-5984.
Permission to adapt and perform ‘A Bunch of Munsch’ has been granted by Robert Munsch through Annick Press and Firefly Books.
