Stella and Sam fans will be very happy to hear that The Mermaid Theatre Comany (motto: Have Puppets Will Travel!) is preparing Marie-Louise Gay’s Stella, Queen of the Snow for the stage. The show will premier at the Magnetic North Theatre Festival in Halifax on June 21, 2014, and then will tour the US and Canada in the fall.
Rehearsals are now underway, but Mermaid Theatre has prepared a little behind-the-scenes video that shows the making of the gorgeous stage and puppets for the production. Check it out!
Stella, Queen of the Snow
Written and illustrated by Marie-Louise Gay
In this book in the Stella and Sam series, Sam is experiencing his first snowstorm. Older and bolder, Stella knows all the answers, and she delights in showing Sam the many pleasures of a beautiful winter’s day.
