No more school, no more books, Wagonstage will make you look! Wagonstage: Summer of COVID will be offered to families with children by the University of Calgary’s School of Creative and Performing Arts and ContainR by Springboard Performance.
With the goal of creating and sustaining a vibrant community for all Calgarians, Wagonstage Children’s Theatre has performed and uplifted families through both good times and bad times. COVID-19 has changed the lives of Calgary’s children and just like when the flood came in 2013 or the fires in Ft. McMurray displaced children to Calgary, Wagonstage will provide laughter and lighthearted fun. They are turning pandemic to FUNdemic with all the necessary precautions to ensure safe and healthy fun. Children ages 3-12 and their families are welcome to enjoy a performance that will make them giggle and wiggle.
Performances through the summer of 2020 will be at the Sunnyside ContainR every Sunday and Thursday from July 26 to August 30, 2020. There will also be performances throughout the summer in select City of Calgary parks —keep an eye out for Wagonstage Children’s Theatre in your community.
This year’s short plays have been written, designed, and directed by MFA students, and will be performed by undergraduate drama students at the ContainR site and City of Calgary Parks. You can find the troupe performing at the Sunnyside ContainR every Sunday and Thursday from July 26 to August 30. Performances are weather permitting —follow along on the Instagram page for any cancellations. Registration for this event is required at www.eventbrite.ca.
