Directed by Scott Sharplin and also showing on May 3 at 2 p.m., this musical is fun for all ages. As another family option, on May 15 starting at 7 p.m., The Tortoise and the Hare comes to life through the popular WierdBeard Troupe. This production also shows on May 17 at 2 p.m. Lots of family fun happening at the Boardmore Playhouse this May.

“Boardmore Theatre strives to present new, imaginative, and exciting plays for young audiences. We strive to push the boundaries of what has been seen before. Bluenose and The Tortoise And The Hare will give audiences a refreshing theatrical experience with their visual style and clownish content,“ says Todd Hiscock, Boardmore Theatre Director.

About Bluenose

All aboard the Shark de Triomphe, in search of pirate plunder and clownish blunder. A treasure chest bursting with song and slapstick, "Bluenose" is a delightful voyage, no matter your age or the colour of your nose!

About The Tortoise and the Hare

The classic tale of the Tortoise and the Hare is retold in a very weird way by our very own Mr. WeirdBeard! Shelly the tortoise, Chase the hare, Ms. Jazzy Bear the music teacher, and Iggy the sly salesman are all part of the Big Race. There are a few distractions along the way and a big surprise waiting at the finish line!
