An Amazing Adventure with A Wrinkle in Time

A Wrinkle in Time, Riverfront’s second production of our 20th season, ran successfully from January 12-21 at KordaZone theatre, well-received and lauded by enthusiastic audiences over both weekends.

Stepping into a world where time folds and dimensions intertwine, our young and courageous protagonists embarked on a mesmerizing journey in our captivating play,  adapted from Madeleine L’Engle’s timeless classic novel.

Meg Murry, her brilliant brother Charles Wallace, and their friend Calvin O’Keefe traversed the universe to rescue Meg’s father from the clutches of an otherworldly evil force. As the trio encountered strange beings and mystical realms, they discovered the power of individuality, intellect, and the unbreakable bonds that unite us all.
 
Our talented young cast brought this sci-fi odyssey to life with energy, heart, and a touch of magic. Audiences were transported to distant planets and experienced the thrill of interdimensional travel. 
 
Althought we battled bad weather (and flu in the cast!), audiences who persevered and came out were happy to witness the triumph of good over evil, as our youth theatre ensemble illuminated the stage with a vibrant performance of “A Wrinkle in Time.” It was a cosmic adventure that transcends time and space, inviting everyone to embrace the extraordinary within each of us. 

 

This show was an exciting journey for our us. It was a challenging script, with some really powerful choral ensemble action. The ambiance of the show is fascinating, and it was a sensory delight, visually and with a fabulous accompanying soundtrack, put together by Meredith Garswood and Bruce Simpson.

We are also very proud and grateful to have received a City of Windsor ACHF grant for ASL-interpretation for two performances. We believe this is the first time ASL has been available in a community theatre production in Windsor-Essex, and it’s been very exciting to bring that to our community! The ASL-interpretation worked seamlessly with the show, adding a whole other layer to the performance. Not only did we benefit from the accessibility and inclusivity that our Interpreters, Beth and Kris of Stage Hands Windsor, provided – we also saw that our actors themselves were incorporating signing into the show. It’s been a wonderful experience, and one that we we saw opening doors to new audience members. Other theatre companies have been contacting us to see how they, too, can incorporate ASL into their shows. And that’s an exciting win for Windsor-Essex community theatre!
