Wilde Tales

Kate Hennig's great adaptation of Oscar Wilde's children tales was a fun lunchtime show for the Shaw Festival. With director Christine Brubaker we put together a 55 minute show with a couple of hundred cues, a few songs and room for interaction with a group of kid audience members who went through a pre show workshop. We kept the music light and bubbly sounding, though the individual stories all were quite dark for a kids show, though it really was for adults just as much as kids. Here's the Nightingale song, as sung by the lovely actor Emily Lukasik.
