TURTLE CROSSINGS - A New Canadian Musical!
Description: Presented By "NEW ONTARIO PLAY PROMOTIONS",
in association with the Not So Amateur Amateurs Adult Theatre Company
An imaginative and original new story is presented for the first time on a Kingston stage by emerging local playwright Warren Craig Godfrey. We travel back in time with Tesah as she relives some cherished, and some not so cherished, memories of her cottage days as a teen in the late 1960âs. We see Tesah and the boy next door, whom she calls her âguardian angelâ, care for the baby turtles who become natureâs orphans and must find a way to survive with a clear path to follow. We discover parallel stories in Tesahâs own life with the devastation caused by issues of mental health, forced adoption, forgiveness and acceptance, and see how the timing of decisions and actions can lead or distract us from our own paths. At the same time we experience a heartwarming and at times comical story, and with twelve original songs and a nostalgic look at traditional summer cottage life, there is something for everyone in this original new story as we see Tesah garner the strength to face her past and finally return to her family cottage â Turtle Crossings.
