Carousel Theatre for Young People presents Spirit Horse, a play about two youth who are caught between two worlds—the traditional ways of their Stoney Nation heritage and the modern ways of the city.
Angelina and Jesse’s lives are changed forever when their grandfather brings them a horse that has mysteriously appeared to him. Can this majestic animal heal a troubled single parent family? Spirit Horse – a poignant tale about family, love and courage – has a warm heart and adventurous spirit. Three actors play over sixty five characters, accompanied by a live musician, in this highly theatrical and imaginative production.
Spirit Horse is an adaptation by Ojibway playwright, Drew Hayden Taylor, from the Irish play Tir Na N’Og by Greg Banks, directed by Greg Banks, costume design by Robin Fisher, set & lighting design by Glenn Davidson, and music composed by Anne Lederman. The cast features Brianne Ticker, Dakota Herbert and Timothy L. Hill with on-stage musician Alex Lamoureux. A Roseneath Theatre production.
