Messy monsters, snow fairies, colourful crayons, talking toys, evil villains, and antics aplenty fill Imaginary Adventures, presented by the U of L Theatre for Young Audiences class on Saturday Dec. 3 at 12 noon in the David Spinks Theatre.
The 50-minute performance contains a wide range of characters and stories created especially for young audiences. “Although created with ages 5 to 10 in mind, the plays are fun for those aged 5 to 105,” says Nicholas Hanson, the course professor. “While the short plays vary in topic and style, they are united by one thing: their endless fun!”
As the final project for the Theatre for Young Audiences class, Imaginary Adventures has already played to a number of excited elementary school audiences. The free public performance in the David Spinks Theatre at the University of Lethbridge is an opportunity for the students to share their vibrant work with the community at large.
“Performing in front of thousands of children is on one hand electrifying and on the other terrifying,” says Hanson. “As a result, everyone in the course challenged themselves to raise the quality of their work, from the writing to technical aspects to the actual performance on stage.”
