The Neptune Touring Company has performed to over 400,000 young Nova Scotians since its inception. For many, the tour is their first exposure to live theatre.
By visiting small communities throughout the Maritimes and performing to students directly at their schools, the TourCo promotes theatre to a wider (and younger) audience, thereby creating and fostering an interest in the performing arts. Professional design, local artists, and expert direction accompanied by study guides and a Q&A with the cast makes this a unique opportunity to bring theatre to all ages all over the province.
Unfortunately we had to postpone our productions of Jabber and Boys, Girls and Other Mythological Creatures.
We're currently investigating new ways to bring our progams and productions into the classrooms in 2020-21 and beyond.
If you are a school, principal, parent committee or teacher who would like to stay informed with our TourCo and Outreach opportunities, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to join our school email list.
By Lojo Simon, music by Ian Leroy | For grades Primary - 6
Inspired by myth, fairy tale and Shakespeare’s The Tempest, SEEDS OF CHANGE fosters environmental literacy through the story of an ornery young girl who leaves the isolated Isle of Oro where she grew up and embarks on a journey of discovery about the world and herself. With original songs and puppets, SEEDS OF CHANGE explores topics in environmental science, including climate change, deforestation, ocean plastic and habitat loss through a story of wonder and empowerment appropriate for K-6th grade students. The play’s poetic language and references to the English literary canon promote literacy in a fun and delightful way.
Created in association with the YPCo Project | For grades 6 - 12
This original new work created through the YPCo Project explores the challenges of finding your voice as a young person in this country. Why does it always feel like an uphill battle? What happens when and if you reach the top? How can you make sure you are heard and can make a difference? What if you are more comfortable in the background? Exploring the challenges of creating a movement in the battle of the Climate Change debate this play is as much a dialogue with the audience as it is a presentation.
