After a successful first run as part of Quest Theatre’s Sweet Pea Neighbourhood Touring Series, Flibbertigibbet’s Story Exhibit leaps back onto stages across Calgary this October.

A whimsical and interactive show for ages three to seven and their families, Flibbertigibbet’s Story Exhibit is an extravaganza of songs, stories, interactive participation, and various puppetry styles.

“This piece of gobbledygook is a real labour of love for me. I love tinkering with objects, delighting little ones, singing songs, and telling really great stories,” says Nikki Loach, Artistic Director of Quest Theatre and the production’s director, curator, and designer, in a statement. “This play organically evolved from some very creative minds, and we were encouraged to offer it again this season when we realized audience members were returning to see it a second time with friends.”

Sure to skyrocket little people’s imaginations, rhythm boxes, wonder wheels, giggle nooks, and funny bones, the show follows the a tour of the story exhibit but Mr. Flibbertigibbet is nowhere to be found. Will Sarah and Alix find the keys to the various story suitcases, and more importantly, will they have the courage to perform his collection of fantastical tales?

Flibbertigibbet’s Story Exhibit runs October 4 to 12, 2019 and you can find the full schedule at Itty Bitty Sprouts (children under two years of age) can even attend the show for free.
