2019-20 Tour

Bring the experience of live theatre to your community or school!

Prairie Theatre Exchange has a long and proud tradition of bringing live theatre to children throughout our province. For thousands of Manitoba children, a PTE show has been their first experience of the joy generated by a live performance – more than 17,000 children see PTE in their home communities each year, including dozens of schools in Winnipeg and surrounding communities, and as far north as Gillam and Leaf Rapids. Prairie Theatre Exchange breaks down the barriers surrounding “the arts” by bringing the arts to the audiences in their own communities – an experience that can have a profound effect on how a child views his or her world.

The Paper Bag Princess

Based on stories by Robert Munsch
Adapted by Alissa Watson


Prairie Theatre Exchange is heading your way again with a  performance tradition of bringing the indelible and charismatic characters of Robert Munsch to vibrant life on the stage. In 2020, we are excited to be able to present Mr. Munsch's best-beloved classic, The Paper Bag Princess, as a full-length, 50 minute production full of fun and colour. Explore more of Elizabeth's world, and her adventures on her journey to rescue the not-so-nice Prince Ronald.

This is your opportunity to give the children in your area, or your students, the chance to experience the power of theatrical expression and to enjoy live theatre in their own environment. Prairie Theatre Exchange is proud to contribute to the development of the “whole child”, which ultimately benefits all of us in society.
