This is the story of a little girl, Crème-Glacée (“ice cream”), who can’t eat ice cream because her name is already sweet enough! Her mother, a very busy woman, often has to leave her alone while she goes off to save the environment. So her mother asks Samantha, a somewhat irresponsible teenager, to look after her. One night when Samantha is babysitting, Crème-Glacée wins a bet and finally gets to eat ice cream… After a single bite, she tumbles to the bottom of the ice cream container, where she makes an amazing discovery!

We welcome Théâtre la Seizième and Marie Farsi, a rising star on Vancouver’s directing scene, with her vision of Marie-Hélène Larose-Truchon’s original text, Crème-Glacée. A unique opportunity to witness a fascinating creative process.

This play for young audiences will premiere in March 2018 at Théâtre la Seizième before touring schools in British Columbia and Alberta.
