Theatre company Productions Nemesis has presented, on two occasions now, my interactive theatre for kids concept, Conte-moi ça, at the Toronto Public Library. Geared toward 5-10 year olds, the 50-minute show in French reinvents fairy tales according to audience suggestions. Thanks to talented improv collaborators, the kids see Hansel and Gretel eat lots of spaghetti – in addition to a candy house – and see Cinderella meet Elsa at the ball instead of the prince.
Following the latest Conte-moi ça, which was played at the Richview branch of TPL, the librarian shared this comment:
« Thank you for arranging this wonderful program. Productions Nemesis gave fast paced, funny and gripping performance today, great stories, props and costumes. I created a display of Fairy Tale books from our Children’s French collection to complement, and made sure no one walked out of the room without a book (s) to take home. »
Glad we could contribute to the next generation’s joy of reading!
