THREE ENCHANTING FAIRYTALES
Storybook Theatre’s original, kid-friendly musical Urban Jungle Book (March 3 - 18) is a retelling of Rudyard Kipling’s stories, made accessible to modern audiences with rock, pop, hip-hop, and rap music (page 33).
Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella (April 25 - 30, pictured) is a stage reinvention of the 1957 television special from the duo who created Oklahoma! and The King and I. This Broadway Across Canada makeover breathes fresh life into the classic tale of Cinderella and her evil stepmother and stepsisters. While there are a few new twists, you’ll still hear the beloved music from the original television special, including “In My Own Little Corner” and “Ten Minutes Ago" (page 34).
Tumble down the rabbit hole with Alberta Ballet’s production of Alice in Wonderland (March 16 - 18). Filled with lush sets, costumes, and choreography, this production captures the magic of spunky heroine Alice trying to make her way home through a strange and fantastical world (page 32).
