A MERRY MUNSCH PYJAMA PARTY

Based on the books by Robert Munsch; Adapted by Roger Rousseau

Put on your PJs and jam with us! Solar Stage's annual Munsch show tradition continues! This brand new play is based on five books: Get Out of Bed; Roar; We Share Everything; No Clean Clothes; and Pyjama Day. This performance promises Mr. Robert Munsch's signature sense of humour that even makes grown-ups feel like kids. This show will make your heart giggle and be as much fun as staying up past your bedtime.

Last year's Munsch show was a Nominee for Best Performance - Ensemble for a Dora Mavor Moore Award, and we're hoping to continue that high standard this year. We present our Munsch shows with minimalistic design, maximum athletic display and a try-this-at-home attitude that highlights the spirit of play characteristic to Mr. Munsch's work and the versatility of our performers.

Tours: This show is available for tours from April 21, 2017 to May 31, 2017. Mon Apr 24 is booked for the day. Wed Apr 26 is booked for the day. Thu May 4 is booked for the day. Tues May 9 is booked for the day. Please call to check availability.

THE PRINCESS KNIGHT: THE LEGEND OF KATE & TIMMY

An Original Play by Tom McGee

In the kingdom of Faraway everyone has a role to play. Kate is supposed to be a Princess, which, in Faraway, means pretty dresses, courtly functions and diplomacy. Timmy is supposed to be a knight, which, in Faraway, means a tough guy who goes on quests and is ready for battle. The problem is Kate likes adventures, kicking butt and NOT wearing dresses! Timmy likes to solve problems peacefully and take care of the business of running a kingdom. When an villain appears, Kate and Timmy will have to combine their strengths and swap their roles to kick the butt of intolerance and trolls in order to save the kingdom. Kate and Timmy show us that only you can decide who you're going to be.

THE REALLY REAL ADVENTURES OF SCOTT FREE AND WILL DO

An Original Play by Kate Keenan & Lesley Halferty

Scott Free and Will Do are best friends who spend all their time dreaming up fantastic worlds; whether they're meeting space monsters, solving mysteries or avoiding the Sheriff of Nottingham, they're always having fun. Everything is perfect . . . until they find out that they are each others imaginary friends! Reality is in hot pursuit and they need to figure out who’s who and what’s really real before their moms make them grow up for good. They'll need everyone's help (and imaginations) to save the day and their friendship!

Join us in Scott & Will's colourful cardboard treehouse for a live action cartoon full of big belly laughs, great songs, high-energy choreography and absolute wackiness. Scott and Will will challenge existence as they know it but they need the audiences help to build their new reality; their only limit is your imagination! This show is best enjoyed with your best friend so call them up and bring them along.

THE UGLY DUCKTHING

Based on the story by Hans Christian Andersen; Created by Marty Stelnick

We all have a home somewhere, but it's not always easy to find. The Duckthing hatches in an empty nest and has no idea where it came from or where it belongs. Lucky for the duckthing, this world is full of catchy tunes and helpful creatures. But the question remains; what is that duck...thing? What is that sound it makes? And where does it belong?

We've re-imagined the Hans Christian Andersen story about fitting in to be about accepting the great uniqueness of who you are. In this world all the creatures are helpful and caring and teach the Duckthing to be proud of the things that make it special. Also, family and belonging can take a lot of different forms. Duckthing uses puppetry and music to feature the web-footed, feathered and fuzzy and tell us a very silly story about important things like love, acceptance, adoption . . . and toots . . .

Tours: This show is available for tours. Please call to check availability.
