Munsch Upon a Time

Based on the stories of Robert Munsch, adapted by Debbie Patterson
December 19, 2014 - January 04, 2015

Join us for PTE's 25th adaptation of Robert Munsch!

Another holiday season, another madcap presentation of the stories of Robert Munsch by Prairie Theatre Exchange as live theatre. This year, come to PTE for some cool time travel where the books come to life on stage with the help of Professor Pim's time machine, which zips back and forth 40 years into the past and 40 years into the future -- all with lots of high-octane energy and loads of laughs. You’ll see three classic stories from Canada’s most beloved children’s author – The Paper Bag Princess, The Fire Station & David’s Father – plus new favourites, Give Me Back My Dad! and It’s My Room!, all presented with the larger-than-life, kid-friendly entertainment our young audiences have come to expect.

A perfect gift for the kids or grandkids, nieces and nephews, or neighbour kids.

Choose from a variety of assigned seating and rush seating shows. Check out our Pajama Parties – early evening performances followed by cookies and milk afterwards, courtesy of Canada Safeway.
