Munsch Upon A Time postponed until Monday

A mudslide that destroyed two houses in Tappen about 15 minutes west of Salmon Arm, has forced the postponement of Munsch Upon A Time at the Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre.

A statement from the Revelstoke Arts Council says the hour-long performance of three classic Robert Munsch stories will now take place on Monday, May 8, at 6 pm. The early morning slide, which killed an  elderly man, forced the closure of the Trans-Canada Highway on Saturday, May 6.

Young theatre-goers will, with the help of Professor Pim’s Time Machine, enjoy these stories from Canada’s most beloved children’s author — The Paper Bag Princess, The Fire Station and David’s Father — plus two new favorites — Give Me Back My Dad! and It’s My Room! — all presented with larger-than-life, family-friendly fun for both the young and the young at heart. These storues are appropriate for children aged two and above.

“Please note you can use your original tickets for this show, or if you cannot make it you can receive a refund at the point or purchase,” the statement said. “There will be limited tickets available at the door: Adults $10 and kids $5.”
