ABOUT THE SHOW
Help siblings Pen and Cob solve the mystery of the town of Swan River! An outdoor theatrical adventure for the whole family, Swan River is based on the tale of the Swan Maiden. In this play, the audience follows the performers along Petrie Island's gorgeous Sunrise Trail. This presentation is a creative collaboration between over a dozen local artists from across disciplines over the span of several years.
A FEW THINGS TO NOTE

This show is for anyone 5+ — kids and grown-ups can all enjoy it!
The performance runs 60 minutes and there is some walking involved: the audience will walk with the performers down the Sunrise Trail (the trail is quite flat, though not paved; a portion of the play takes place on a sandy beach)
There are public washrooms at the Main Pavilion on the Island
The show takes place rain or shine, so please dress for the weather In the case of extreme weather conditions, a concert version of the show will take place indoors at the Shenkman Arts Centre (245 Centrum Boulevard)
