PROJECTS CURRENTLY IN DEVELOPMENT
BY ROMEO CANDIDO AND CARMEN DE JESUS
We are honoured to have received $130,000 in funding from the prestigious National Creation Fund from the National Arts Centre for new development of this innovative multi-platform story that is based on the Filipino prisoners who became a viral YouTube sensation as the “Dancing Inmates of Cebu.” Citadel Theatre will work with the creators to redevelop the existing stage musical, as well as interactive content.
ADAPTED BY ERIN SHIELDS
The Citadel has commissioned Canadian playwright Erin Shields to adapt Charlotte Brontë’s classic novel, Jane Eyre. The first English novel to be written in first-person narrative, Jane Eyre was ahead of its time in its approach to class, sexuality, and feminism. Shields’ adaptation will be set in the early Victorian age of the novel but will bring a fresh take to this story of romance, deceit, and psychological intrigue.
ALMOST A FULL MOON
BY CHARLOTTE CORBEIL-COLEMAN
Commissioned by the Citadel, Almost a Full Moon is an interpretation of the beloved Christmas album by well-known Canadian singer/songwriter Hawksley Workman. Written and developed by Canadian playwright Charlotte Corbeil-Coleman, this play will incorporate Workman’s songs in three different storylines that chase in and out of different ages of Christmas, love, and family, winding together for a timeless story.
