Ideas Bobert at the Bailey Theatre

November 20, 2022 @ 3:00 pm

Trail Arts Council’s TECK Family Series 2022-23 presents

‘Ideas Bobert’ with Candy Bones Theatre

Sunday, November 20, 2022 at 3 pm

The Bailey Theatre

From award winning creator Candice Roberts comes the heart fluttering physical comedy Ideas Bobert. Bobert is a silent character, a la Charlie Chaplin, who has a little red bird for a heart. His story asks us, what happens if we are to deny our deepest dreams and desires? Teetering on the brink of absolute failure, love-sick Bobert discovers his heart to be more important than he knew.

With vintage silent film styling, shadow puppetry, stop motion animation projections, tap dance and vintage music, the world of Ideas Bobert is rich with magic and creativity. Filled with preposterous situations and dreamy surrealism, the show is like Ginger Rogers meets Mr. Bean on the Muppet show, as Ideas Bobert dances with the hilarious and absurd.

“Charming and skillfully performed. Putting Ideas Bobert on your list would be a good idea!” ★★★★ –CBC

“Ideas Bobert is a leap into a silent-movie that you will be very reluctant to ever leave. Heartwarming and hilarious, inventive and inspiring. Truly the kind of theatre magic you can never plan for but only hope for, and will leave you with your eyes popping and your heart flying high.”– Kevin Reid, The Visitorium
