Every year, L’UniThéâtre presents a production for young audiences that tours francophone and French immersion elementary schools in Alberta. This year, the touring play is Le merveilleux voyage d’Inès de l’Ouest by Rébecca Déraspe, produced by Théâtre la Seizième (Vancouver). The play is intended for an audience in kindergarten to grade six. With their purchase of one or more performances, schools will receive a learning guide specially tailored for teachers in order to help them prepare their students for the play they are about to watch. Teachers will be able to guide their students’ discovery of the play and its themes through a variety of games and activities for all ages and interests.
Inès of the West is an infamous neighbourhood prankster. One night, while she is up to no good, she encounters a formidable foe: Jérôme of Port Alberni, a magical elf who instantly shrinks her down to be no taller than three apples. When she is suddenly carried away by a Canada goose, Inès’s great adventure begins!
After the success of Le merveilleux voyage de Réal de Montréal, Rébecca Déraspe has adapted the text especially for western Canadian audiences: a rite of passage that transports us from the beaches of the West Coast to the Okanagan valley, and from the skyscrapers of Vancouver to the peaks of the Rocky Mountains. Audacious and poetic, this show will charm audiences of all ages with its themes of friendship, discovery, and difference.
