VERNON - The Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre proudly presents Axis Theatre Company’s production of the classic tale Robinson Crusoe on Sunday, Oct. 16, 2016 at 2 p.m. at the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre.
Robinson Crusoe is the first of three performances in the Society’s 2016/17 TD Kids’ series.
Axis Theatre’s Robinson Crusoe is a tale of survival and self-discovery retold with imaginative physical theatre finesse. In this action-packed adaptation about an English sailor shipwrecked on a remote island, Crusoe works against all odds to turn his unforgiving refuge into a home.
When Axis’ hero saves an Islander from danger, the two strangers develop a remarkable friendship awash with comedic mishaps. This classic story embraces friendship, empathy, self-esteem, communication and cultural differences.
Vancouver based Axis Theatre Company is well known in Vernon for their three-sold out performances of The Number 14 and last year’s production of Hamelin. Axis presents professional physical theatre across Canada, throughout much of the United States and to many other parts of the world.
With their masterful combination of mime, clown, mask work, puppetry, text, music and acrobatics in over 55 original works, Axis has earned 16 Jessie Richardson Awards from the Vancouver theatre community.
Tickets for Robinson Crusoe are $12 for all ages. Call the Ticket Seller at 250-549-SHOW (7469) or go online for tickets and more information.
