TRUNK! is an award-winning family musical adventure for kids of all ages.
The musical follows the story of two siblings, Daisy and Oliver, navigating their way through the struggles of growing up and growing apart with the help of their singing Dragon. They decide to take one last journey together in their magical trunk.
The play is based on stories written by real children across Canada. As you can imagine, the story and characters are wacky and absurd and is all delivered with full blown grown-up irony. We are seeking actors and collaborators with a strong comedic style and singing/musical experience. There is also dancing, but we’re willing to work with your level of ability.
The first production of TRUNK! won Pick of the Fringe: Family Fest at the 2013 Victoria Fringe Festival. In 2015 Trunk! was selected to perform at the Gabriola Theatre Festival, and was most recently featured at the Atlantic Fringe Festival for a nearly sold-out run in September 2017 where it won the hot ticket award. Kerploding Theatre is excited to continue to develop Trunk! for its Toronto premiere this summer at the 178 seat George Ignatieff Theatre in the Toronto Fringe Festival 2018.
