Looking forward in 2019

 

What to expect in the new year for shows and programming:


Touring Shows

It is a joy and a privilege to bring our productions into schools across the continent and engage students in important conversations around the challenges and realities they face in their lives and in their communities. Our season is nearly sold out, but there are a few dates available for certain regions for both ‘Outside’ (January – March) and ‘Head À Tête’ (March – May).

Outside Touring: January 17 – March 8. Our Dora Award Nominated show is on the road and headed even further out. We are excited to be showcasing the play in schools and theatres in the United States. We will be taking this performance into theatres on the following dates:

 

Head à Tête Touring: March 18 – May 3. A play we have been producing since the early days of Roseneath, but with brand new design and a fresh take on this timeless bilingual tale. We are hosting previews of this play on Saturday, March 16 at 11:00 am and 2:00 pm (RSVP HERE).

 

We will be announcing our 2019/2020 season in April. Subscribe to our newsletter to stay up to date!
