The Bright Idea - FringeKids 2011

I'm directing a kids play called The Bright Idea for the 2011 Fringe Festival in Toronto, the first one since the Blue Velvet Shadowcast in 2009 (which was not for children so much.)

The story is about two sisters, one young and one a bit older, who are visited by a shadowman one night when they are making shadow puppets on the wall. His name is Sean and he wants to go back to Shadowland; the two girls are tasked with helping him get home. There's definitely a touch of The Wizard Of Oz running through the production.

The witty script is by Jillian Larkin (who is also in the cast.) We also have Aidan Black-Allen as the the older sister (from Lick Her), Kelly Preeper as the younger sister (children's theatre veteran and comedienne) and Kris Kadas as the shadow (from the Blue Velvet and Jurassic Park Shadowcast.)

Our facebook event page is online, and I'm posting some behind the scenes shots here from one of our recent rehearsals in a park (without costumes or make-up.)

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for kids.
