YPT presents the World Premiere of Munschtime!
YPT presents the World Premiere of Munschtime! featuring the beloved stories of Robert Munsch
Classics like Love You Forever, Murmel Murmel Murmel, Pigs, A Promise is a Promise and Too Much Stuff! spring to life on stage in the World Premiere of Munschtime! at Young People’s Theatre (YPT). Presented on the Mainstage from April 17 to May 14, this funny, sweet and joyous collection of works by acclaimed children’s author Robert Munsch will delight young theatergoers and adults alike.
A child pitches a tent in her grandparent’s backyard to camp out for the night. Thrilled with her newfound freedom, the girl prepares herself for endless fun. Her grandparents, however, want to bring the indoor notion of bedtime to the great outdoors. In their quest to get her to sleep, they enact classic Robert Munsch books, hoping that each new story will be the right fit to get her to settle down for the night.
Adapted by Stephen Colella and Allen MacInnis, Munschtime! is directed by Herbie Barnes and features Cheri Maracle, Dov Mickelson and Lisa Nasson. With Set Design by Robin Fisher, Costume Design by Sage Paul, Lighting Design by Michel Charbonneau, Sound Design by Cathy Nosaty, and Stage Management by Kathleen Harrison.
Robert Munsch is one of North America’s most beloved and best-selling children’s authors. His books are staples of many children’s libraries. All together they have sold over 30 million copies, and have been translated into over a dozen languages.
