THE INCREDIBLE SPEEDINESS OF JAMIE CAVANAUGH: Apr 4-May 20, 2016
For more than 30 years we’ve been bringing engaging and entertaining professional theatre directly to schools clear across the province. We present thought-provoking theatre that challenges young people to consider their role in real and relatable situations. For anyone who has experienced being different and for everyone looking to support a friend, Roseneath’s plays open a door to meaningful dialogue that has the power to reshape communities.
This season’s themes speak directly to the experiences students encounter both in the classroom and at home. The plays programmed for 2015-16 have a proven track record of sparking lively dialogue around hot button issues, and feature young characters grappling with issues which range from bullying and the move to establish Gay/Straight Alliances in Canadian high schools, to living with ADHD.
Paul Dunn’s OUTSIDE (Grades 7-12) and Robert Watson’s THE MONEY TREE (Grades K-6) anchor the season – both are fresh-off sold-out tours in 2014-15, and both also received Dora Award nominations Outstanding New Play! The lineup is rounded-out by acclaimed playwright Chris Craddock’s THE INCREDIBLE SPEEDINESS OF JAMIE CAVANAUGH (Grades 4-8), helmed by multi-Dora lauded director Richard Greenblatt.
Each of our tours is launched with two Sneak-Peek Preview performances at our Dundas-West headquarters in Toronto, before the Artistic Ensembles head out on tour across the province. We bring a professional production right to your school, anywhere in Ontario, complete with theatrical set and our own sound equipment. School pricing is per performance and starts at $650 (plus HST) for an audience of up to 300 students.
