Alberta Theatre Project Legend Has It

[twitter]Legend Has It is a ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ brought to life for the stage. It is a funny, heartwarming fantasy adventure for the whole family – complete with powerful spells, magic swords and comic sidekicks. It was created by Rebecca Northan (Blind Date, Kung Fu Panties), so you know it will be hilarious! Like most of Rebecca’s shows, it  has a ‘spontaneous’ twist: each show, the actors pick someone in the audience (child or adult) to become the ‘hero’ – to go on a journey to save the world! Will they pick magic or weapons? What path with they take? The show features some of Canada’s top improvisers and is different every night.

Over the last few years, the cast has workshopped the show at Loose Moose Theatre and ATP included it in the PlayRites festival in 2014 – there was a HUGE response from fans. So they’ve bought it back, and for the Holiday Show no less – their biggest show of the year! It will run from November 24-Decemer 31 in the Martha Cohen Theatre. This is hometown success story – the show will travel to New York in the new year!

“You’ve never seen anything like this incredible show. When we first presented it, kids and grown-ups hooted and laughed so hard that the theatre rocked. People came again and again, some dressed up in fantasy costume. It’s entertainment that appeals to kids, families, adults and fantasy fans of all kinds. The show is uplifting, hilarious, and totally original.”
– Vanessa
