Dos Mundos Theatre is bringing Snacey!, a campy solo show about a talking snake, to the Toronto Fringe Festival’s KidsFest, running at St. Volodymyr Theatre from July 3 to 14.

Written and performed by Priscila Gonzalez, Snacey! is a high-energy tale right out of an early-2000s TVOkids television program.

The show centres Snacey, a snake who wants to throw her first birthday party. Afraid that no one will show up because she’s not been the kindest snake, she realizes it’s time for her to shed her evil practices and discover the power of an apology. Will her animal-puppet friends accept that she’s capable of change?

Director Shaharah Gaznabbi will employ puppetry, shadow work, and physical theatre to transport audiences into a land of evil snakes, sassy squirrels, know-it-all rabbits, lovable birds, and wise old owls.

Gonzalez, a Colombian-Canadian theatre artist who’s worked in various roles on fringe shows in Hamilton and Toronto, is making her fringe solo show debut with Snacey!. “It is an ambitious show, but I have loved every aspect of the challenge, both as a writer and performer,” she said in a press release.
