We're hitting the road VIRTUALLY to bring the Theatre to YOUR school!

This Spring we’ll be touring an incredible production for Grade 3 to 8: Max the Magnificent  

This experience is nothing short of incredible. We bring everything to you – a complete set, sound gear, the whole nine yards, and transform your gym to Max’s bedroom. 

Max is a kid who marches to the beat of his own drum. Taylor is Max’s new step-brother, and a bully.  Max is feeling alone. How does he get Taylor to stop bullying him? How does Max reach out and make friends when no-one seems to understand him? When Xam appears out of Max's video game, Max's world is turned upside down, and this unlikely duo team up to save both their worlds, but can both be saved? There is a hero inside all of us, all it takes is believing in ourselves to find it. But sometimes you need a little help to get there.

We will be touring our next Theatre for Young Audiences production virtually through May and June 2021 and have a morning and afternoon opportunity each day. The performance fee is only $250 (+HST), and can be performed to as many students as you can seat in your gym. The performance ends with a Q&A so we can have a first-hand discussion about the curriculum guided topics we discover along the way.

Curriculum Connections: Drama, Health and Physical Education: Health Literacy, Language: Oral Communication/Media Literacy/Reading and Writing, Visual Arts

Running time is approx. 1hr, including a Q&A with the cast. There is also a comprehensive study guide available, (complete with class and independent worksheets, and projects).

For bookings or questions please call 519-942-3423 or email, tickets@theatreorangeville.ca
