Cultural centre presents classic fairy tale

Oregon Shadow Theatre brings the story of Thumbelina to life with puppets on Oct. 2 at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre.

Oregon Shadow Theatre’s Thumbelina takes centre stage on Sunday at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre.

This story about a miniature girl born from a flower follows Thumbelina’s journey as she finds her way in the world of nature, creating a tale with a Woodstock generation twist.

The show features the colourful shadow puppets of Deb Chase and storytelling by Mick Doherty.

Thumbelina meets a variety of characters on her trip, including a frog named Buford who has a thing about Elvis and Mrs. Strawberry Fields, the mouse who happens to be best friends with the mole Mr. Darkness. Thumbelina also stumbles upon a talent show, with a six-legged host who does an imitation of Roy Orbison.

The main theatre will be transformed into Thumbelina’s magical world, which consists of a projection screen in the shape of a setting moon and a cast of mice, frogs, birds and bugs.

Thumbelina runs from 2-4 p.m. on Oct. 2. Tickets are $10 and available through the box office at 604-391-7469 or online at www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca
