Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls

March 23, 2024
11:30am

From ROSENEATH THEATRE

Written by Dave Deveau

Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls follows the story of 9-year-old Fiona who comes out as a boy and wants to be called Fin. Fin has always had this feeling – knowing something is different but not knowing what it was or how to say it. As Fin cuts his hair short and changes his name, his family works to understand and adjust to Fin’s gender identity. Dad is accepting of the change right away, but Mom doesn’t quite get it at first. Always from a place of good intentions, we see Fin’s family struggle with this change and through the course of the play ultimately begin to accept and embrace Fin for who he is.

Recommended for ages 9-14

AT THE END OF KALIYUGA

November 11, 2023
11:30am

Created and Performed by Sanskruti Marathe

At The End of Kaliyuga is about Brahma (the creator), Vishnu (the preserver), and Shiva (the destroyer). These three, known as the Holy trinity of Hinduism, need to decide the fate of the Earth as we come to the end of the fourth and the final cycle (Yuga) of the Universe. Will they put an end to the planet to begin a fresh start, will humanity get a second chance to fix all the problems, or is there a third path that the Gods will take for the sake of humanity?

Catch Me in the Kitchen Story Adventures

11:30am

Who will outsmart “the most handsome, most daring, most petrifyingly feared wolf in all the province of Ontario?” Join Stephen LaFrenie and Ginette Mohr for two reimagined classic tales with delightful characters and surprising twists – an exciting combination of storytelling and physical theatre, with a touch of French throughout! A joyous storytelling treat for families craving humorous and warm-hearted entertainment.

“…a masterpiece of the imagination.”
— Shelley Cook, Winnipeg Free Press

“…an entertaining delight that promises to please audiences young and old… a magical showcase.”
— Joshua Chong, The Toronto Star
