Follow Ariel and Caliban on their magical adventures in a family-friendly adaption of The Tempest next week at Town Centre Park in Coquitlam.
The Windsinger is Robert Garfat’s adaptation of the Shakespearean play and will be performed by Place des Arts’ Summer Teen Theatre Troupe eight times between July 23 and 28 on the TD Community Plaza stage. Admission is free.
This year, the actors will be accompanied by three members of the Coquitlam Youth Orchestra — Lynette Chiang on violin, Irene Lee on cello and Joseph Chiao on viola — who will play music by Cameron Wilson.
Under the direction of Jessica Anne Nelson, the Windsinger cast is made up of Antalya Kabani, Aisha Azizi, Elijah Sam, Indah Del Bianco, Monica Leca, Natalie Quiring, Olwyn Stowe, Samantha Li and Zeina Rashmawi.
Shows are: July 23, 24 and 27 at 7 p.m.; July 25 at 1 and 7 p.m.; and July 28 at 1 p.m.
Meanwhile, applications are now being taken for the next Youth Arts Council.
Successful candidates will be mentored by arts professionals, help to guide decisions at monthly council meetings and plan two teen-only events at Place des Arts: Teen Day at PdA on Nov. 24 and Art After Dark next May.
