Carousel Theatre for Young People presents Good Day and Good Night (Jun 6-18). Designed for the very youngest of theatre-goers, here are five reasons we think you should take your infants and toddlers:
1The Bee Stage
Created specially for the littlest theatre-goers, newborn to age 3, the Bee Stage is the perfect place to introduce infant, toddlers and their caregivers to storytelling.
From an original script from Kayla Dunbar and Dustin Freeland, plus original music by CJ McGillivray, the trio are reunited after appearing together in the Bee Stage’s inaugural production of Dot & Ziggy in 2015.
3The New Movement
Theatre for the very young is a new movement gaining traction across the globe. It strives to create gently stimulating theatre experiences for babies and toddlers.
Theatre for the very young focuses on performance that invites audiences to crawl, laugh, clap, and activate all five senses in a new way and in a space made just for them.
The Sun is confident and popular. The Moon is shy and easily overlooked. One day, the Sun meets the Moon, and the two set off to explore each other’s worlds. At first it seems they are too different to ever be friends, but through song, some animal friends, and a little help from the audience, they learn to accept each other’s differences and become friends. They also learn that when they work together they make an excellent team.
Good Day and Good Night plays on the Bee Stage at Carousel Theatre for Young People (1411 Cartwright St, Granville Island) from June 6-18. Visit http://carouseltheatre.ca for tickets and information.
