The Carousel Theatre for Young People is presenting the Incredible Adventures of Mary Jane Mosquito this November. The play is from St. Catherine’s, Ontario and will be making its BC premiere this fall.
This is the story of Mary Jane, a mosquito who doesn’t have wings and feels like a misfit because of this, but whose voice soars to the stars. After being unsuccessful at making friends and moving schools, Mary Jane learns that by sharing her language, her kind heart and her songs with the world, she can become friends with anyone! This new play by Canadian playwright Tomson Highway weaves music, song and Cree language into its storytelling. With live music throughout, and supported with puppetry and fanciful costumes, this is an engaging piece for younger audiences.
Carousel Theatre for Young People empowers young people and families through playful, imaginative and accessible theatre experiences that develop emotional literacy. Located on Granville Island in the heart of Vancouver, CTYP is Vancouver’s professional mainstage TYA Company. They are a gathering place for artists, young people and families to embark on a journey where imagination, a dash of magic, and an abundance of play are the recipe for a theatrical adventure that has lasting impact.
