Flora & Ulysses Based on the Newbery Medal award-winning book by Kate DiCamillo
Synopsis

Can a little squirrel change the human heart? Join Flora & Ulyses to find out.

After getting sucked up by a Ulysses 2000x vacuum cleaner, an unassuming squirrel is given new life by 10-year old Flora Belle Buckman, a self-proclaimed cynic who is struggling to accept her difficult family situation. She names the squirrel Ulysses and discovers that he has gained superhero powers! No longer an average squirrel, the mighty Ulysses can now understand Flora, fly through the air, and even write poetry... A friendship is born between the unlikely pair, and together they embark on a heart-filled journey full of quirky characters, giant donuts, a killer cat and the ever-expanding universe. This endearing saga about the possibilities of hope, and the promises of a capacious heart, proves that the world is indeed more beautiful when you believe a squirrel can type poetry.

Flora & Ulysses is the phenomenal show based on the Newbery Medal award-winning book by Kate DiCamillo, the #1 New York Times best-selling author of The Tale of Desperaux, and The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane.

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE SHOW:

  • Flora & Ulysses is an extraordinary piece of theatre for children, young people and families. It is topical, stimulating, creative, and has social, literary, and cultural breadth.
  • Flora & Ulysses incorporates outstanding puppetry, dynamic visuals, unique staging techniques, creative use of props, imaginative effects, and masterful writing.
  • Flora & Ulysses is a show with strong educational value. It:
    • Nurtures in your child the joy of books and reading by linking the page to the stage.
    • Develops an appreciation of the drama as a theatrical genre, and graphic novel as a literary form.
    • Explores one's courage to be different.
    • Explores belief and the life-changing power of one's belief.
    • Explores  love, friendship, and the passion and complexity of the parent-child dynamic.
    • Stimulates the imagination and thinking outside of the box.
  • Question & Answer Session. All our shows have a post-show Q&A session if possible. The Q&A helps young audience members consolidate their thoughts of the show, clarify any questions they might have on who, how, why and to ask the actors any questions about themselves or how theatre is made. 

 

Players Theatre is pleased to be working with schools to supplement the Ministry of Education’s STELLAR Literacy programme with our literature based theatre exposure and experience performances.
