Grumpy & Grimm
By Laura Caswell

Grumpy and Grimm are two quirky friends who have an assignment; to find joy in the stories they tell. The trouble is Grumpy can sometimes be a little negative, and Grimm can turn the simplest situation into a disaster. Is the glass half empty or just misshapen?
Audience members help act out some of the classic tales as this goofy pair use the power of storytelling and working together to break through barriers and discover new ways of navigating tough situations.
Themes: Comedy; Reading and Books; Storytelling; Grimm's Fairytales; Mental Health; Depression; Anxiety
Shakespeare on Trial
By Jeremy Webb
For grades 7-12, Touring Spring 2024
Writer Bill Shakespeare encounters four of his own most famous characters: Macbeth, Iago, Hamlet and Juliet up-close, personal and ticked-off. Shakespeare On Trial explores the Bard’s accessibility and relevance in the world today.
Shakespeare has to defend his own writing as the four fictional characters challenge the author to write in a modern way, arguing that no-one understands them anymore. Shakespeare On Trial is an hour-long, fast-paced introduction to the Bard’s words, designed to help those words find an ear today.
Themes: Comedy; Literacy; Shakespeare; History

Thanks for sharing the magic of theatre with your classes!
"We all LOVED IT!! The kids were enchanted - so much so, they asked to stay in for recess to finish it.... We acted like we were in the theatre space, and they were so excited about seeing a play that some of them 'dressed up' for the second day."
- Chignecto Central Regional Centre for Education
"The students laughed a lot! One thing that struck me was how attentive they were to it compared to a YouTube video. I think it's because it's local, and because the video production takes you 'on stage' which makes it gripping."

"It was very easy to access the material, and we were happy with everything. We live on the Shouth Shore, so this isn't something we would have been able to go up to see in the city necessarily."
