Emily Eyefinger STARS at the Seymour Theatre ~Monkey Baa Theatre for Young People!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The theatre was crowded, the audience ranged from 5 to 85 – and everyone was laughing with the crazy and joyous characters of Emily Eyefinger, Aunt Olympia, Malcolm Mousefinder, Arthur Crim and the hilarious professor Mousefinder.
It was a romp – the best of slapstick, the best of animation interacting with live characters, the best of performances!!
Tim McGarry – the world’s dumbest ‘crim’ and smartest Mouseologist.
Sandra Eldridge – eccentricity is gorgeous with Aunt Olympia
Dannielle Jackson -the cutest Emily Eyefinger with a dilemma
Douglas Hansell – master of the melodramatic moment- what a criminal!
Christopher Childs-Maidment – the most endearing ‘MOUSE’ ever
The feel-good theme was warm and wonderful – It’s OK to be different!!!
The creative team of Eva DiCesare, Tim McGarry and Sandra Eldridge – adapted the Emily Eyefinger series to create a theatrical romp that is pure delight.
The professionalism, stage craft, integration of animation led by Andrew Hagan, costume design, sound, the dramaturg Caleb Lewis (who also did I Am Jack). …. is the best of theatre.
Did everyone love Monkey Baa’s adaptation of Duncan Ball’s Emily Eyefinger?
Eye (aye) to that!!!!
