Wild Swan Theater Presents OWL'S WINTERWild Swan Theater Presents OWL'S WINTER
by BWW News Desk - Dec 8, 2016

Wild Swan Theater, Ann Arbor's highly acclaimed theater for family audiences, presents a special production for young children.  Owl's Winter is a delightful collection of stories based on Arnold Lobel's Owl at Home, carefully created to engage the littlest theater-goers.  In one story, Owl encounters strange bumps at the end of his bed as he lays down to sleep.  In another, the moon seems to follow him home while he is out for an evening stroll.  In a third, Owl makes tearwater tea when he runs out of the real thing.  The warmth and humor of these stories will delight you and your preschool or early elementary school aged students.  Children will help Owl make discoveries through lots of audience participation and a special suprise at the end.

by Brodie Paparella - Nov 25, 2016

Director Hailey McQueen and her team have crafted here a transformation of what could be a lacklustre, perhaps even puerile submission to Sydney's scene into a genuinely entertaining and insightful show with much fortitude in its use of technique and tradition. Polished and precise, The Screwtape Letters is unlike anything Sydney has had to offer this past year. (more...)
