CETM is pleased to present the newest musical from the critically acclaimed Théâtre Exaltemps : “Peau d’âne, la princesse sans nom” ( or “The Princess Without a Name”, in French only / en français seulement)
This classic story by Charles Perrault has been adapted by Chantal Grenier and directed by Philippe Soldevila, and will be presented as a special staged reading at The Next Wave Festival of New Musicals.
Théâtre Exaltemps has already had great success with the presentation of their first original work, “Noël 1933″.
This new adaptation promises to surprise and delight audiences. According to author Chantal Grenier: “We made the decision early on to be true to Perrault’s original text. Younger audience members will appreciate the magical aspects of the story, while adults will likely enjoy the irreverent humour that infuses the piece.” The show’s musical score is designed to fit perfectly with the story. “It was very important for us to have the music reinforce the drama of the tale,” added Catherine Savoie, co-composer of the songs.
Theatre Exaltemps will unveil its new creation on Saturday, August 18th at 11:00 a.m. at the Maison de la Culture Frontenac.
