This year, the province of Ontario has been experiencing rolling teacher strikes as the government negotiates with the teacher’s unions. Roseneath Theatre cannot support any policy that limits access to invaluable teacher resources. We support ETFO and the teachers unions in their efforts for maintaining class sizes, curb classroom violence, fair compensation and reversing the cuts made to special education programs.
Due to these rolling strikes and cancellations, we must suspend touring our production of OUTSIDE in Ontario for this season. All bookings have been pushed to the 2020/2021 season. Outside will still be on tour in Saskatchewan this year.
We will make official postings if our other productions or bookings are affected.
Now would be a great time to support Roseneath Theatre. These lost shows are lost revenue for our organization, and we need your support to continue to bring world class social justice themed theatre to kids across Ontario.
UPDATE: Now offering Strike Camp for February 21st Sign up Here
With the Teachers Job Action affecting school across the province, we are offering parents and kids a space for extra learning and fun. Campers will have fun crafting, sharing their favourite stories, playing drama games, and more!
It’s not too late to donate to Roseneath Theatre and help us in our mission to bring thoughtful and progressive theatre to schools across Canada. Your donation will help subsidize performances in schools who might not be able to otherwise afford our fee, and will provide camp scholarships to our local community to attend our P.A.Day and week-long march-break and summer camps. Donations are eligible for a tax-receipt which comes just in time for the end of the year.
Since 1983, Roseneath Theatre has been touring high quality professional theatre for young audiences. As a not-for-profit registered charity, we rely on donations to reach approximately 100,000 children and youth each year. Your gift directly supports our touring productions and is fully tax deductible.
Since our earliest days, Roseneath has endeavoured with a high degree of success to create new theatrical works of the highest quality (as evidence, look to our over 50 Dora Award Nominations). Shows anchored in subject matter that resonates with young people, presented in a dynamic inspiring fashion and never talking down to our audience.
