WagonStage: Calgary's Free Outdoor Theatre

WagonStage, an free outdoor theatre for children, will be at a park near you this summer.

University of Calgary's drama department students, in partnership with The City of Calgary, will perform SHOOSHOO and VLUM, written by Clem Martini and directed by Braden Griffiths.

Vlum isn't sure he knows what "it" is and ShooShoo, she definitely doesn't like "it". Is "it" a space alien from the planet Krenna with powers of levitation? Is "it" a powerful vanquisher of desperate peanut butter craving squirrels? Or is "it" simply the reason mom was looking like she might be having a baby very soon? Join Shooshoo and Vlum, a fantastically eccentric set of fraternal twins, as they try to get to know and perhaps even love, this new addition to their world... a new addition named Libby.

Performances are 50 minutes and include music and audience participation. It's fun for people of all ages, but especially for those under 10.
