Geordie Productions’ winter highlights: Once Upon a Home and Thrice upon a time…

Montreal, December 21, 2009 – Geordie Productions is delighted to present two exuberant plays to thrill Montreal children and their families this winter:

ONCE UPON A HOME | Centaur Theatre Children’s Series | Saturday, January 16, 2010

Written by Amanda Kellock, from the writings of students at: FACE, St-Gabriel’s, Willingdon, Coronation and Karonhiahonha schools. Directed by Amanda Kellock. Designed by: Ana Cappelluto and Troy Slocum. Featuring: Jimmy Blais, Vanessa Schmit-Craan and Antoine Yared.

What does "Home" mean to you? Last year, Geordie posed this question to elementary-school students from 5 different schools in and around Montreal, as part of a collaborative creation process called “From You to Us to You”. With their stories, words, and drawings, the Geordie team created a fresh new play to bring back To You. Through songs, stories and a lot of make-believe, discover some of the many diverse ideas children have of Home.

Since September 2009, Once Upon a Home has traveled all across Quebec as part of Geordie’s School Tour. Don’t miss this opportunity to catch a public performance here in Montreal!
