From Victoria, BC, Trent Arterberry’s 2006 Ontario Contact showcase generated a fourteen-date tour stretching from Kenora to Saint John. Arterberry is back with an all-new show that blends his trademark physical expressiveness with comedic speaking characters and a dramatic story line. The Secret Life of Walter Manny drew large crowds and garnered critical praise at the 2013 Toronto Fringe Festival where Mooney-on-Theatre called it “a fast-paced and high energy adventure … He can have kids in awe one moment, then suddenly reduce them to fits of giggles with a single glance … This is exceptionally well-crafted children’s theatre!”
