Arts Council of New Westminster and New Westminster Family Place present: A La Commedia a production by the Burnaby Summer Theatre from the Burnaby Arts Council
A La Commedia is a contemporary exploration into the form of Commedia Dell'Arte which originated in Italy in the renaissance. This is a people's theatre performed on the streets, in markets, for all ages, and all social classes! It is a physical form that combines mask, music, slapstick, and in this case Greek Mythology!
