‘Shipwrecked’ is fun for the whole family

Show runs through holidays at Liberty Theatre

Special for the Express   

  It is a tall tale of adventure and bravery—of taking chances and survival.
    “Shipwrecked,” now on stage at the Liberty Theatre in Hailey, is proving to be a fun, family journey that transports audiences into a tropical adventure.
    After last week’s debut, the show was the talk of supermarkets and coffee shops.
    Children said they liked the frenzied activity of the cast, each one playing more than a dozen characters with costume and prop changes.
    The central character, Louis de Rougemont, and dog Bruno, his lone surviving partner after a storm thrashes their pearl-diving expedition, were engaging. One kid said the show inspired him to be a pirate when he grew up, spending his time at sea with his own dog companion.
    Parents were likewise enraptured, sharing that their imaginations were revived during the 90-minute production.
    Company of Fools keeps the interaction going with two post-show activities. Inside the program, guests will find a piece of paper to inscribe their favorite show moment and feed it to an octopus in the lobby. There is also a typewriter for guests to add a line to an ongoing story that will be published at show’s end.
