Terry Eissfeldt and Brynn Tyson present the first clues to audience members during the interactive Mother Goose Mystery at the Gate House Theatre in Port McNeill Saturday.

Audience makes time to help find lost rhyme

Theatre spectators had a chance to become part of the story during the Gate House Theatre’s drama performance last weekend.

PORT MCNEILL—Theatre spectators had a chance to become part of the story during the Gate House Theatre’s drama performance last weekend.

The Gate House Community Association’s after-school drama program held an interactive play called “A Mother Goose Mystery” last Saturday, where actors worked together with audience members to solve a mystery.

The mystery in this case took place in Mother Goose Land, where rhyming words in assorted nursery rhymes had inexplicably gone missing. Little Bo Peep, for example, had lost her camels instead of her sheep, while Mary Quite Contrary was instead Quite Silly.

Brave travellers, played by the audience, were implored by Mother Goose herself to venture through Mother Goose Land and bring the rhymes back.

Audience members made their way through different scenes set up in the theatre, provided at each station with a set of “clues” that offered the real words to the nursery rhymes. It was the audience’s job to match each character with their missing rhymes.

At the end of the adventure, when rhyme and reason had been restored to Mother Goose Land, adventurers received popcorn and hot chocolate as a reward.
