Maple leaf mys­tery

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EN­TER­TAIN­MENT -

To keep their at­ten­tion, the ac­tion changes ev­ery seven min­utes, so that even chil­dren un­der three can say, ‘oh, there’s some­thing new,’ when­ever Time Vor­tex (Amanda Lip­ton) pulls out her colour­ful rib­bon or waves her magic fan.

“Then you also have your mo­ments where the kids are help­ing (the de­tec­tives) find the pieces of the leaf,” says Sandy.

Au­di­ence par­tic­i­pa­tion is an im­por­tant el­e­ment of the show, says An­drew.

“The show’s not just for the wee ones, there’s some­thing for the adults, too. So the ad­ven­ture pro­vides some­thing for a range of ages,” says the co-cre­ator.

When the show is over, Clare is smil­ing. Her ex­pec­ta­tions have been re­al­ized. “It was very good. I liked how we helped them solve the mys­tery and find the pieces of the maple leaf.”
