Maple leaf mystery
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.”
