Story Box Theatre – Created by Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia
Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia’s inventive digital micro theatre retells classic stories re-imagined and modernized for today.
Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia presents three traditional children’s stories through the magic of Story Box Theatre – the company’s newest digital initiative. Billy Goats Gruff follows three hungry goats who must cross a bridge to feast on the luscious, green grass that grows on the other side. To get there, they must cleverly outwit an evil, greedy troll who lurks underneath the bridge, looking to eat anyone who passes, and his favorite meal is goat!
In another tale titled Rumpel, (based on the original story of Rumpelstiltskin), the conniving Rumpelstiltskin makes deals with a miller’s daughter to weave straw into gold and in The Sky is Falling (based on the original story of Chicken Little), a well-meaning young chick who, after getting bopped on the head by a falling acorn, runs to warn everyone that the sky is falling.
