Catch Me in The Kitchen

Catch Me in The Kitchen Story Adventures

Who will outsmart “the most handsome, most daring, most petrifyingly feared wolf in all the province of Ontario?” Canadian storytellers Ginette Mohr and Stephen LaFrenie present two reimagined classic tales from their repertoire. Each tale features delightful characters and surprising twists. The performance is a blend of storytelling and physical theatre, told in English with occasional offerings of French words and expressions for introductory-level French learners.

Catch Me in the Kitchen Workshop 

Students will learn the elements that go into creating and performing a story. To demonstrate how to bring a story to life, Stephen and Ginette will spend the first 20 minutes of the session presenting their version of ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’. This story will be the framework for fun activities where the students will learn how to create environments, characters and relationships by using their bodies and voices.
