Roseneath Theatre is excited to announce a new partnership with Pursuit OCR for the remainder of our summer camps!
Our final two weeks of camp (August 14-18 and 21-25) will be taking place at Pursuit OCR, located at 444 Dufferin St. This partnership will allow your kids to enjoy incredible activities, such as Nerf wars and Ninja Skills, give them access to fun filled exercise facilities like slack lines and battle ropes, all with the support of trained staff – while also engaging in theatrical games and activities with guidance from Roseneath Theatre’s professional drama educators and youth leaders!
Through this partnership your kids will benefit from the supportive and skilled staff of both facilities as well as flexibility in programming and activities that are active and creative with endless opportunities for fun!

Canada Giving Challenge ends today! Donate to our tour of Spirit Horse and help us bring this amazing production to underserved schools across the province.

Since its premiere at the Luminato Festival 10 years ago, Spirit Horse has visited hundreds of schools and theatres from Ontario to British Columbia – reaching over 100,000 children across Canada! This year’s ambitious tour will start in Northern Ontario, then journey to Vancouver for two weeks at Carousel Theatre, before returning to finish the tour in Ottawa and Toronto. Challenging and entertaining, Spirit Horse helps to open dialogue with young people about racism, bullying, and Indigenous culture while providing a highly theatrical and imaginative performance in which three actors play over 65 characters and are accompanied by a live musician!
We are thrilled to again bring this important play to schools across Canada, please help us to support this amazing production by donating here:
“Your play has driven the point that racism hurts, that it is disrespectful and cruel. During times of racism in your play, it made people feel uncomfortable, it made them see that it is wrong. A lot of our problems have stopped because the play has shown them how a victim of racism feels, what it makes the victim thinks. Racism has still not disappeared from our school, but some of our students are starting to stand up to it and shutting it down. Students are realizing that deep down in our souls we are all people and that life is too short to make enemies. I hope that the lesson we learned from this play will carry on into the future and make Atikokan and Canada a better place, no matter what colour our skin is. Thank you for a thought provoking play and a valuable lesson.”
