Drayton Entertainment's Winter SeasonFor the last few months we have been letting everyone know about Drayton Entertainment's Productions of Snow White and The Little Mermaid and that they would be coming to the Kitchener Waterloo area. Last week we had the opportunity to attend both productions and from what we are hearing there is not a lot of time left to grab tickets!
While both of these performances stem from the magic of Disney, they are very different theatre productions.
Snow White : A PantoFor those not familiar with a panto, it is an interactive production where the narrator and the characters include the audience in the show. This performance Snow White follows the traditional Brothers Grimn fable with several modern twists. The prince becomes Prince Justin of Timberlake and we meet a nurse as Snow White's companion, along with a "Blues" Fairy. While this does not have the Disney stamp on it, be sure to look for some Disney Princesses making a cameo appearance. This production will be enjoyed by both children and parents alike. Look for songs that both the kids and adults will recognize along with current event references (can we say LRT?).
Did you see Footloose: The Musical? Then you may just recognize the actress starring in the role of Snow White.
Disney's The Little MermaidTraditional musical lovers will delight in the vibrant production of The Little Mermaid. Complete with colourful ocean scenery and that magical voice that can only belong to Ariel. This Hans Christan Anderson tale is in full blown Disney mode with stage becoming the sea, and the talented cast bringing all the animated characters to life. With calypso sounding tunes and mermaid sopranos singing their sirens songs, this musical will have your singing in your seats and quite possibly all the way home!
As mentioned above tickets are going fast for these two productions. We suggest you start a family winter tradition and see a Drayton Entertainment family theatre play!
Looking for a great Christmas Gift idea? Why not purchase tickets for the family to see Drayton Entertainment's Wizard Of Oz over March Break? Tickets go on sale to the general public tomorrow (Dec 1 2014)!
