Family Holiday Show – World Premiere
SLIPPER: A DISTINCTLY CALGARIAN CINDERELLA STORY
BY REBECCA NORTHAN IN COLLABORATION WITH
CHRISTIAN GOUTSIS AND BRUCE HORAK
DIRECTED BY REBECCA NORTHAN
NOVEMBER 22 – DECEMBER 31, 2016
The British tradition of the holiday pantomime receives a Calgarian twist delivered by Rebecca Northan, the master of audience engagement whose smash-hit stage shows include Blind Date and Legend Has It. Light-hearted and fun, Slipper is a hilarious and heartfelt modern day fairy tale told on a grand scale, full of jokes about life in Calgary that will delight every member of the family!
Cheer, clap, boo and sing along as you root for Cindy, a local teenager who just wants to do her work, get along with her family and play her guitar. Then one day she meets a handsome time traveler named Eddie Prince who invites her to compete in the Stampede talent show. One problem: her crazy stepmom won’t let her. Can Cindy win the competition’s top prize and maybe even Eddie’s heart too?
From the over-the-top costumes, to the show-stopping musical numbers, to the opportunities for audience members to take part in the action on-stage and create a unique show every night, Slipper will have you wanting to see it again and again!
“For the holiday season, ATP offers high-quality family friendly entertainment that takes you on a new adventure every year. Inspired by the family tradition of pantomime, we’ve asked Rebecca Northan and some of Canada’s top talent to create a brand new theatrical experience. You’ll get to boo the villain, cheer on the heroes, laugh along to spoofs of current pop tunes and join in the fun. I can’t wait to see what they cook up!”
-Vanessa Porteous, Artistic Director
