A live show coming to Steinbach will be a chance for kids and adults to enjoy five classic Robert Munsch tales combined into a single performance, and also a chance for children to take part in a pajama party.

Prairie Theatre Exchange will present a performance of The Good, the Bad and the Munsch at the SRSS Theatre in Steinbach on Jan. 19 starting at 6:45 p.m.

Toni Reimer of Winnipeg is one of the three performers that will act in the play, and she said the show will see classic Robert Munsch stories combined to create one story, while also telling the story of two competing food truck chefs fighting over the business of a hungry customer.

The story is geared towards children, but Reimer said she is sure that those adults who bring children to the play will enjoy the show.

"It’s just going to be a really fun show for kids and adults," Reimer said. "We have stuff the kids can get really into, and we have jokes the parents just love.

"The whole show is just so fun and the kids just get into it from the beginning to the end. It’s really silly and fun, and it’s very interactive and it’s very high energy."

Reimer added she believes Munsch’s stories can empower young children.

"In all of his books the kids are the heroes, so it’s just really fun for the kids to see a show where the kid’s opinions are the ones that really stand out, while the adults in the story are the silly characters," she said.

Reimer said she hopes that everyone from young children to adults come and check out the show.

The performance is also being billed as a pajama party, and children are invited to come to the show wearing their pajamas and asked to bring their stuffed toys along with them to the show.

There will also be hot chocolate and donuts served at the performance.

Tickets to The Good, the Bad and the Munsch in Steinbach are $14 and anyone looking to get tickets can call the Steinbach Arts Council at 204-346-1077, or purchase tickets online at steinbachartscouncil.ca.
