Festival Players for Families


All for Beaver Hats!

By David S. Craig
with Jerome Ackuhurst & Richard Greenblatt
Directed by Eliza-Jane Scott*
Performed by the Festival Players Young Company

“The ages audience laughed and cheered as the young actors transformed, playing and singing as several different characters in this fast-paced production.”
– Kathleen Sabyan, The Wellington Times

“300 years of history packed into this cheerfully entertaining 45 minute show…I found myself smiling from the first moment of this production through to the end”

”[The play is] a fast paced, funny and colorful voyage through the history of the Canadian fur trade.”
— Bruce Bailey, The Montreal Gazette

Beaver hats? Really? Well yes, since you asked. Step right up and witness through the marvels of theatrical amusement, three hundred (or so) years of Canadian history hilariously told in 45 minutes! Young and old alike will delight in watching this veritable highlight reel of the expansion of the Canadian fur trade.
