Bea­cons­field Chil­dren’s Fes­ti­val opens at Car­riage House July 6

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - COMMUNITY/ENTERTAINMENT -

The cre­ative team that brought Which Way to Won­der­land, Pi­rates ARR Us! and A Wiz­ard’s Tale is back at the Car­riage House with a brand-new mu­si­cal com­edy this sum­mer for the 2015 Bea­cons­field Chil­dren’s Fes­ti­val.

The Mag­i­cal Maple Leaf Mys­tery tells the story of a de­tec­tive duo faced with an un­usual mys­tery: the maple leaf from the Cana­dian flag is miss­ing.

Fol­low­ing clues through time and space, the young de­tec­tives ex­plore an im­mense for­est, take a train ride with a for­mer prime min­is­ter, and meet a hockey leg­end. Through up­beat songs, dance and help from the au­di­ence, they even­tu­ally make an un­ex­pected dis­cov­ery that is truly Cana­dian.

It’s a fam­ily col­lab­o­ra­tion, based on a book writ­ten by An­drew and Sandy Zinck.

The Bea­cons­field Chil­dren’s Fes­ti­val runs Mon­day, Thurs­day and Fri­day from July 6 to Aug. 14. All per­for­mances take place at 11am in Bea­cons­field’s Car­riage House, lo­cated at the cor­ner of Kent and West Streets in Char­lot­te­town. Per­for­mances are suited for chil­dren 3-and older

Ad­mis­sion is $7.50 each.
