Spring Forward

Created & Directed by Joan Bryans
Musical Direction by Pat Unruh




Ah, Spring! A regeneration, bunnies, tax returns, daffodils, itchy feet, spring cleaning, budding romance,   Join us as we celebrate all that is good, bad, sad, frustrating, hilarious and amorous about this anything-but-boring time of year.
 
We toast the season in song, poetry and prose and sometimes just plain silliness.  We span the centuries from Ovid’s 2,000 year old poetry to a rap lament from a tax form filler-outer!
 
We offer some well known favourites  - how could we omit Wordsworth’s Daffodils? -  and many surprises –   a rock version, a la Jerry Lee Lewis, of  one of Shakespeare’s songs? Meet Elizabeth Barret Browning, a cynical gardener, a concentration camp survivor,  Keats,  some hilarious schoolchildren,  Zelda Fitzgerald, some very saucy mediaeval lovers and many others,  all presented by some of Vancouver’s best young actors.
 
You’ll never think of Spring in quite the same way again!
