The life and times of explorer David Thompson are depicted in a fun 30 minute sing-a-long puppet show called "The Man Who Looked at Stars". This presentation is a popular favorite among schools and families who visit Rocky Mountain House National Historic Site.
The puppet show runs at 2:00 pm daily during the summer months, staff permitting.
"The Man Who Looked At Stars" may also be booked for school programs or other groups. The booking fee is $50 and reservations can be made by calling the Confluence Heritage Society at 403-845-6680.
The show entertains children and families alike at Rocky Mountain House National Historic Site however, we'd like to expand our offering.
By translating the show into French we can reach a broader audience of school children and francophone visitors. This would require the professional translation of the script, the professional audio recording in a studio along with voice actors and editing of the background sounds. We'd also re-wire our performance space to allow the puppeteers to chose between languages at visitor or school preference.
Taking the puppet show on the road would allow us to share the adventures of David Thompson with schools as we go to them during the months of September through April. The cost of this includes a second set, transportation of props and costumes, vehicle maintenance, as well as a proper sound system to perform functionally.
All donations towards this cause will be recognized at performances, on the vehicles, publicly on our social media and website and thanked with a charitable tax receipt.
