We are proud to say that Sigurd the Dragonslayer was another success for the Struts and Frets Players. We clinched the Best of Fest honour for the third time in four years, and have been flattered by some great positive feedback by audience members. Some choice accolades include:

“Struts and Frets astutely pull together their own special take on Sigurd’s portion of the saga, where pop-culture references abound and a laugh is always around the corner. – Barb Stewart in her review for the Winnipeg Free Press

“The magic in this exciting production lies in how this story is told. The story comes to life through a combination of puppetry, props, visual projection, live actors and humour. I liked the attitude these young actors add to this old tale…I highly recommend that you go and see this show.” – Justin Olynyk in a review on his blog, Winnipeg Theatre

But we are especially thrilled to announce that our very own Ariel Levine and Jessy Ardern, who wrote the script together, won the Harry Rintoul Memorial Award! This is an award given out every year by the Fringe Festival for the best original script by a Manitoba writer, and we are very proud of the recognition. And to top it off, they are the youngest recipients of the award yet.

Thank you to everyone who came out to support this madcap scheme our latest production. We will be sure to keep you apprised of our next big adventure.

  1. I am just thrilled to bits. I brought me wife to see the show and we both howled. (I am also so disappointed I never get you guys on my review list! LOL) Also as a huge fan of the Ring Cycle it is nice to see the myths in their original form. It is a great thing that you do keeping our oldest myths and stories alive and available to a modern theatre goer. You are deserved of major funding so that you might bring you productions to schools around the world. In the meantime you can also count on me as a promoter of your work and I would be happy to meet anytime about doing some work for us at the comedy festival.
