Pop­u­lar bed­time sto­ries will come to life on Savoy stage Satur­day

Cape Breton Post - - ARTS/ENTERTAINMENT - The Ru­n­away Bunny,

GLACE BAY — The Savoy The­atre and Mer­maid The­atre of Nova Sco­tia are pre­sent­ing the chil­dren’s clas­sics, Good­night Moon, and The Ru­n­away Bunny, Satur­day at 2 p.m.

The in­no­va­tive dou­ble bill adap­ta­tion will bring the beloved bed­time sto­ries of the books — writ­ten by Mar­garet Wise Brown and il­lus­trated by Cle­ment Hurd — to life on stage at the Glace Bay venue.

Now in its 37th sea­son, Mer­maid The­atre has earned in­ter­na­tional ac­claim for its unique in­ter­pre­ta­tions of sto­ries for young audiences. Th­ese widely-trav­elled pro­duc­tions in­cor­po­rate in­no­va­tive pup­petry, strik­ing scenic ef­fects, and evoca­tive orig­i­nal mu­sic to pro­vide chil­dren with an ef­fort­less in­tro­duc­tion to the per­form­ing arts and the ex­cite­ment of read­ing.

Good­night Moon is a cel­e­bra­tion of fa­mil­iar night time rit­u­als, while The Ru­n­away Bunny tells the tale of a bunny leav­ing home. Both sto­ries fea­ture en­dear­ing rab­bit char­ac­ters, the sooth­ing rhythms of bunny ban­ter, and dream-like im­agery, which are sure to bring a new sense of ap­pre­ci­a­tion to sto­ries that have de­lighted sev­eral gen­er­a­tions.

Tick­ets are $25 and are avail­able at the Savoy The­atre box of­fice, which can be reached by phone at 842-1577. Peo­ple can also pur­chase tick­ets on­line at www.savoythe­atre.com.
