TEA AT THE PALACE


  • Wychwood Theatre 601 Christie Street Toronto, ON, M6G 4C6 Canada

Presented by Puppetmongers Theatre

Tea at the Palace is a sumptuous retelling of two heartwarming tales told in old Russia, that explore themes of equity, social justice and compassion. A peasant is brought to the Tsar’s court and charged with treason, simply for enjoying his tea; then, the Tsar becomes smitten with a girl beneath his social rank, who outsmarts his meddlesome servants by cleverly solving a series of riddles.

Staged in Puppetmongers’ signature style with zest, humour and delightful ingenuity, the show features magical pop-up scenery, an array of puppets based on antique dolls and toys ranging from 6” to 6’ tall, and exuberant music created by David Anderson and Nuno Cristo that draws on traditional Russian songs and instrumentation.
