This summer the talented teens of CTYP’s (Carousel Theatre for Young People) Teen Shakespeare Program take on Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale – a story of love, jealousy, and atonement, where things aren’t quite as they seem… A fantastical tale, full of tricks and turns, that is sure to delight the entire family.
King Leontes and King Polixenes are childhood friends but a tragic misunderstanding drives them a part and thrusts those they love into an incredible adventure. A story of joy, forgiveness, and the timeless power of love – The Winter’s Tale is staged on magical, starry nights outdoors in Ron Basford Park on Granville Island.
The annual Teen Shakespeare Program stages outdoor, all-ages productions on beautiful Granville Island with a festival-style village, concession, and activities for the kids before the show and during intermission. Admission is FREE but seating is limited, with premium seating available in advance for $6 per seat.
Actor, director and theatre educator Mike Stack leads a cast of 16 teen actors, ages 13-18.
