A Student-Driven Success: The Canterbury Tales

The Canterbury Tales
Written by Lindsay Price

Great characters, lots of humour, strong ensemble work and a lively adaptation of a classic collection. Lindsay Price’s The Canterbury Tales is all that – and so much more.

Chaucer’s classic collection of tales comes to life in a brilliant full-length adaptation.

A group of travelers set out for Canterbury on a pilgrimage. To pass the time they entertain each other with a storytelling contest. Best story wins a prize.

Each and every performer gets a chance to shine in this spirited, charming script.

The student performers at Los Alamitos High School in Los Alamitos, California all had the chance to shine – as they tackled this comedic adaptation from top to bottom, giving their own unique twist on the production:

We opened The Canterbury Tales last night and it went SO well! This show was 100% designed and built by students: sets, costumes, props, lighting, sound, publicity, stage management, and run crew.
