STILLWATER SCHOOL FOR MOSQUITOS

A Musical Concert Experience for Families & Children

Bugs are taking over High Park in this work-in-progress concert for young audiences and their families! Join The Mulligans (Peter Fernandes, Hailey Gillis, Qasim Khan, Courtney Ch’ng Lancaster, and Jennifer Villaverde) as they share snippets and stories around the creation of STILLWATER SCHOOL FOR MOSQUITOS, and hear bits of the exciting synth-pop score! 

STILLWATER SCHOOL FOR MOSQUITOS was adapted from the book The Mosquito Brothers by Griffin Ondaatje, and follows the tale of Dinnn, a little mosquito born in a big puddle in a movie theatre parking lot. Join the Mulligans as they follow the misfit adventures of Dinnn, the only mosquito in a family of four-hundred-and-one  who doesn’t like to fly.

STILLWATER SCHOOL FOR MOSQUITOS is presented as part of The Musical Stage Company’s residency as part of Dream in High Park by Canadian Stage.
