The Young King

Hosted by Carousel Theatre for Young People


1218 Cartwright Street, Vancouver, BC, Canada

April 19 at 3 PM

Relaxed performance.

A young goatherd finds out that he is heir to the throne and is dazzled by the riches and finery of his new life, only to discover that everything comes at a price. Will the young king make the right decision for himself or his kingdom?

The classic Oscar Wilde story, The Young King, is a coming of age story that grapples with the ethics of beauty, leadership and compassion. The beautiful language of Oscar Wilde joins the intimate and magical world of internationally-acclaimed theatre company Slingsby (Adelaide, Australia), as audiences journey to far away lands replete with rich rewards and challenging choices.

Be sure to come early to this production to join in the pre-show coronation activities beginning 15 minutes before showtime.
