Sharnoozle! – Toronto Fringe 2018 Press Release

Step into a mysterious history book and get transported around the world and through the ages!

From press release:

From ancient Egypt and the world of Cavepeople, to meeting Amelia Earhart, and Amadeus Mozart, Daniel steps into a mysterious history book and gets transported around the world and through the ages. Along the way, Joan of Arc’s sword gets stolen and the race is on to return it. An introduction to history, the joy of reading, and a gender equality message all woven into a play full of adventure, music, and comedy. A visual treat and a fast paced musical romp! Everything is possible when you know the magic word – Sharnoozle!
The play was commissioned, originally produced, and since remounted by Tokyo Theatre For Children, written when Canadian playwright Robert Tsonos was living overseas. The production will be directed by Alan Kinsella with musical direction by Mike Ross. The 6 member cast is made up of Chris Vergara, Emma Ferrante, Rob Sapienza, Jaymee Fuczek, Hailey Dwolinsky, and Jeremy Sanders.
Sometimes Y Theatre has been producing theatre in Canada, Tokyo, England, and Hong Kong since the company’s inception 18 years ago. The company’s Toronto productions include Ditch (Theatre Passe Muraille Backspace) receiving one Dora Award nomination, and William & James (in association with Theatre Passe Muraille) receiving 2 Dora Award Nominations. The company’s SummerWorks production of The Dumb Waiter was included in Eye Magazine’s top Fringe plays of the year.
