Family Fun - Carnival of the Animals/The Hockey Sweater
- WORLD PREMIERE Featuring R.H. Thomson Narrator, Trevor Copp Mime Artist, Michael Schulte Violin
A World Premiere! "Carnival of the Animals/The Hockey Sweater" is an exciting new musical attraction for the entire family featuring an 11-member instrumental ensemble, mime artist and narrator.
"Carnival" describes in fourteen movements a veritable bestiary of animals including Kangaroos, Tortoises, Chickens and Roosters, Fossils (mais oui!) and Swans. All of these movements will be introduced through witty poems performed by the great Canadian stage and screen actor RH Thomson, and mime artist Trevor Copp will impersonate the animals. To complete the one-hour program, the two performers will relate the popular Canadian short story, "The Hockey Sweater", by Roch Carrier, with music by Canadian composer Abigail Richardson.
