The King Stag

Wed., Mar. 25, 2015 7:30 p.m. - Sat., Mar. 28, 2015 9:00 p.m.

Location: University Theatre, Riddell Centre

Adapting freely from Carlo Gozzi's Commedia del'arte classic, The King Stag, director Joey Tremblay and the Theatre Department at the University of Regina will present a spectacular, clown-filled version of the play filled with the all the pageantry and comic gags (lazzi) of the original - with some impish irreverence and mischievous rebellion thrown in. This update of the 18th-century fairy tale should appeal to the fanciful at heart as well as the young in age. The show's design takes its inspiration from steam punk - a subgenre of science fiction, fantasy literature and art that features steam-powered machinery in a setting inspired by industrialized Western civilization during the 19th century. We are using all the tricks that our fabulous proscenium stage offers - the traps and the ropes!
