Mea happens upon a mysterious castle, unearthing the legend that one day, the true heir of the kingdom will return. Fun for kids and adults alike, The Secret of Castle Alphabet will challenge you to believe that world change happens one person at a time.
Why should someone come see your show?
Three actors with a revolving door of six characters, extensive props, and and incredible setting creates the transporting effect of being plopped down into the middle of a giant castle. Grounded actors transform into an animated bunch of characters bringing a new meaning to the term ‘quick-change’. Shadow puppets and other theatre magic allow for a diverse performance environment. This kid-specific show will be a great conversation starter for children and parents to talk about how everyone can change the world around them, one person at a time.
If your show was a superhero which superhero would it be, and why?
The Secret Of Castle Alphabet would be Superman. Not only is he someone kids look up to, just like Superman we have a strong sense of morality, we are fair and exhibit compassionate justice. And like our strong hero, the castle is not from the ordinary world, there are different rules here. You will feel the power of your own X-ray vision by looking through the walls to figure out The Secret of Castle Alphabet.
If you could see only one show at the Vancouver Fringe this year, besides your own, what show would that be?
Beaver Dreams looks like another fun, family friendly show to check out. With the extremely Canadian premise of beavers and the great use of some giant front teeth, which we may or may not have in common with one of the characters from our show, Lost & Found Puppet Co. captured our interest with their quirky description and great promo image.
#FringeDuJour is a daily peek at some of the shows coming to this year’s Vancouver Fringe Festival. We’ve asked Fringe artists to answer a few questions to entice you to see what they have to offer and to help cross-pollinate the Fringe.
The 2017 Vancouver Fringe Festival runs September 7-17 on Granville Island and stages around town. Visit http://vancouverfringe.com for tickets and information.
