StoryBook Theatre is thrilled to co-produce this Robert Munsch Classic with Forte Musical Theatre Guild. An incredible musical take on the book by Forte Artistic Producer and well known Calgary musician Joe Slabe this show is guaranteed to put a smile on everyone’s face.
The Paper Bag Princess hardly needs an introduction. First published in 1980, and with over four million copies in print, this story of a feisty princess and her hapless prince has captured the hearts of readers young and old all around the world. The New York Times called it one “of the best children’s books ever written,” while it has appeared countless times on Best Books lists across North America.
Now, even toddlers can enjoy this modern classic. While retaining the original storyline with all its humor and panache, a revised text for the 2-to-4-year old makes this version appropriate for pre-schoolers. The sturdy board book format is perfect for little hands. Parents and grandparents who believe that it’s never too early to introduce kids to stories that excite, make them smile and showcase self esteem, will be delighted that they can now share this all-time favorite with even the youngest child.
