Manitoba Theatre for Young People: Comet in Moominland, October 12 - 28

MTYP's new season opens on October 12 with the company's signatureComet in Moominland.

A miniature universe of mysterious forests, magical caves and sailing seas unfolds beneath a canopied dome. Moomintroll and his friend Sniff discover that peaceful Moominvalley is threatened by the imminent arrival of a fiery comet. Comet in Moominland deals the need for ingenuity and courage in the face of disaster.

"Comet in Moominland is a beautiful, unique production that has inspired audiences and artists like myself for three decades now," says MTYP Artistic Director Pablo Felices-Luna. "It was time for a new generation of theatre lovers to experience Comet. There truly was no better way to welcome Leslee Silverman back to MTYP than by opening our season with this signature piece, which we are pleased she will be directing."

Comet in Moominland runs from October 12 to 28 and is best for ages 5-8.
