Telling Stories with Rooney & Punyi

Get ready for a half hour of fable fun!

Day 11 is all about starring in your own story - where all you need is a bath towel and your limitless imagination. Rooney and Punyi will be reading a storybook and bringing it to life with their signature humour and clever insights and they’ll help you transform that bath towel into a perfect prop.

We cannot wait to see you interacting with Rooney & Punyi so don’t forget to take a picture of your participation in today’s activity and share it with us online!

The City of St. Albert has worked with content developers to provide creative prompts that align with provincial public health measures, and guidance to protect the health system and the community by slowing the spread of COVID-19.

Rooney and Punyi created their signature style of theatre over 40 years ago when they teamed up to bring educational theatre to schools across Alberta and beyond. The duo have had an incredible career working with some of the finest Theatre companies in the country and are recipients of The St. Albert Mayor’s Lifetime Achievement in the Arts Award.
