DSC_5074
 
And here we are – 10 memorable years are behind us! It is not easy to put into words all the feelings and emotions that burst like fireworks today! So instead, we decided to do something that is not very obvious for artists – some MATH! Let’s look at the numbers…
During these past 10 years OUK Theatre brought to life:
– 40+ PRODUCTIONS for all ages with actors 6-30 years old!
– Over 200 creative events
– Ran over 100 WORKSHOPS in Canada and abroad
– Participated in 18 International FESTIVALS
– Organized 6 International CHILDREN’s THEATRE EXCHANGES
– Taught HUNDREDS of children and performed for THOUSANDS!
– TOURED Ottawa region, Toronto, Washington DC, Atlanta, Orlando, Stratford ON, Lingen (Germany)
– Performed for INCREDIBLE AUDIENCES that saw us on theatre stages of all sorts, forms and sizes, streets, squares and parks of different cities, festivals, National Arts Centre, universities, schools, libraries, daycares, cafes, and tons of experimental spaces!…

WE FEEL that it’s a good start to enter a NEW DECADE that attracts us with new artistic challenges, new friendships, new experiences and new theatrical adventures!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ONCE UPON A KINGDOM THEATRE!!!!!!!!!

The show “Lucid Dreams” is an immersive experience where audiences are taken on a journey through dreams. Ensemble of actors creates a strange world of dreams that is full of symbols, illusions and grotesque imagery through movement, contemporary dance and work with masks and objects. 26 audience members at a time enter theatrical space and participate in the action while interacting with actors and experiencing different dream worlds from the inside.

The story is based on children’s research of their own dreams that they studied for many months, then analyzed and explored through physical work on stage. This piece is created from children’s desperate desire to connect, find that “electricity” that brings people together, makes them care about each other, experience breathtaking flights, discover new boundaries of the universe, and feel the unrestrained need to share their discoveries with the whole world.

The show is presented by our Senior Acting Class. After premier in Ottawa, “Lucid Dreams” will travel to Germany to represent Canada at the 15th World Festival of Children’s Theatre!

The show “Shoes with the Squeak” is a playful piece created by Junior Acting class in the style of Object Theatre. Children gather around the Shoe Tree and start telling funny and at times sad stories about life of shoes.

Приглашаем вас на новый спектакль младшей студии “Башмаки со скрипом”!
Ребята собираются вокруг Чудо-дерева, на котором вместо листьев растут башмаки, и начинают рассказывать весёлые и порой немножко грустные истории о жизни башмаков. Обувь оживает прямо в руках у детей, превращаясь в удивительных персанажей, которые ходят, разговаривают, танцуют, ссорятся и мирятся, радуются и грустят, живут своей необыкновенной башмачной жизнью.
В спектакле обыгрываются стихи Юнны Мориц, Корнея Чуковского, Агнии Барто и Аллы Стройло.

This Fall our theatre is opening a new unique program for young Stage Managers ages 11-17! And it is FREE! Get in touch with us for more info and the application form! Description: OUK Theatre’s Stage Management Practical is designed to provide young individuals who are interested in backstage work in general or specifically stage management with the tools and experience they need to develop a skill set in play production. The student chosen will be paired with one of our existing classes and be responsible for organizing props/set/costume, recording pertinent blocking, run warm-ups with cast members, closely work with actors and the director, etc (depending on the instructor’s requirements). The student will also receive one-on-one training with OUK staff, in regards to organizing/maintaining a prompt book, and other tasks required of a stage manager. This student is required to attend all rehearsals and performances the chosen class participates in. This program is offered both in English and Russian language. * OUK Theatre will be accepting 1-2 student(s) for this 2015/2016 year. Applying: Application to the Stage Management Practical requires the student to fill out a form detailing their availability, experience and interest in backstage work.  In addition, students may be required to attend an interview to further discuss their current skills in the theatrical field as well as their desire to learn new skills.  OUK staff will be available through email or phone to help students fill out forms or prepare for an interview if they so wish. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Ekaterina Vetrov at onceuponakingdom@gmail.com or  Alexandra Isenor at oukmanager@gmail.com
