Summer Theatre - Hippoposthumous

Join us along the water’s edge as we introduce you to Hippoposthumous!

Hippoposthumous is a young, slightly nervous, and surprisingly polymathic hippopotamus living in Colombia’s lush Magdalena River- misplaced in time and space. With their future hanging in the balance, they wallow into the spotlight to explore through rhythm and rhyme the idea of “invasive species''. From Starlings in Halifax to Giraffes in Paris, Hippoposthumous embarks on a poetic odyssey to discover where they’re from and what it takes to truly belong. 

Presented by Nova Scotia’s The Unnatural Disaster Theatre Company, this one-person show is a fun, funny, hour-long musical play that will be performed in and around Hutt Lake. Join us at Richard P. Eldridge Memorial Park on Lower Grant Road, Chester Basin (a 9-minute drive from Chester village) for this one-of-a-kind production that will charm the whole family!

Hippoposthumous is ideally suited for those aged 10 and up.
