The Happy Mask

Writer/Producer Aimee Chan, Director/Dramaturg/ Producer Rachel McNamara, Musical Direction Connie O’Connell

Aimee and her team are developing a stage adaptation of children’s picture book The Happy Mask by Albury-based author Aimee Chan. This children’s book is a gentle story that examines what it is like to live in a world surrounded by people in masks from a child’s perspective.

They will experiment with music and movement playing off each other’s strengths to bring out the emotions and the layers in the story that were previously represented with printed words.

The long-term goal is to create a theatre show for families with children under 10 or primary school groups.
