Past Productions of 2013/2014


THE LITTLE MERMAID

The Little Mermaid three mermaid sisters 2013By Hans Christian Andersen | Adapted by Pam Gems
Directed by Colleen Lanki
The classic fairy tale by one of Denmark's greatest writers, adapted into an imaginative stage production by British playwright Pam Gems. Submerge yourself into the story of a young mermaid who, after falling in love with a prince, makes a courageous, but ultimately heart-breaking bargain with a sea-witch. As Pam Gems writes, “What is surprising about the stories of Hans Christian Andersen is what is surprising about all fairy stories…the darkness.” Rediscover the dark beauty of Andersen's original tale.

PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH THE INDIANS: Staged Reading

UFV Theatre and Sto:lo Nation/Sto:lo Research & Resource Management Centre presents three free staged readings of Kwantlen playwright Joseph Dandurand's Please Do Not Touch the Indians as part of Culture Days in September 2013. The readings are directed by UFV Theatre faculty member Heather Davis-Fisch. 

The play begins with two "Hollywood Indians" sitting on a bench in front of a gift shop. Throughout the play, stereotypical tourists, fascinated with the wooden figures arrive to pose with them and take pictures. When the tourists leave the stage, Dandurand shows the audience a contrasting dream world where the characters of Coyote, Wolf, and Raven tell their fantastic, moving satirical, and beautiful stories, showing how they came to be and how contact and colonization changed their lives in painful ways. 

September 28 and 29, 2013 
Sto:lo Research & Resource Management Centre in Chilliwack
Building 10, 7201 Vedder Road
