The Platypus Theatre returns with another one of their exciting children-oriented shows, “Bach to the Future” featuring young Corky.
Corky’s eccentric Uncle Siegfried is the obvious person to help her with her student project on classical music. While poking around in his peculiar workshop, she accidentally combines the ingredients of a magical musical spell making her tumble through time to meet some of the world’s most fascinating composers. Hopscotching through the ages of Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Dvorak and Shostakovich, Corky must discover the secret musical formula that will bring her home. Will she be able to get back to the present and finish her schoolwork in time? Young audiences learn the power of creativity and self-empowerment while exploring musical eras and forms. The story weaves from the baroque period to present day, leading the audience in rhythm exercises and some of history’s most beloved symphonic music. Bach to the Future lasts approximately 55 minutes.
