Roseneath Theatre throws open its doors on Sunday, December 11 for a FAMILY-FRIENDLY FUNDRAISER. The event promises a fun-filled day, with something for younger and older attendees alike.

The day will be anchored by a performance of Chris Craddock’s The Incredible Speediness of Jamie Cavanaugh recently home from a two month tour across the United States. Parents can relax, browse Auction Items and chow down on some Snacks (by local restaurants), while the kids tackle activities in the Kids Craft Area. We’ll also honour a valued supporter as we bestow our annual Rosie Award to an individual who has made a significant volunteer contribution to Roseneath Theatre!

This event is an excellent chance for the public to see the highly popular ‘The Incredible Speediness of Jamie Cavanaugh’ returning from our US tour. They roll into town just in time for a final presentation at the fundraiser! Proceeds from the event will go towards the purchase of a new truck which we’ll use to tour farther into the Province, reaching communities that don’t as-often have access to this type of arts experience”

SYNOPSIS: 
Jamie Cavanaugh has a problem. She’s always going too fast. “Slow down!” say her parents. “Pay attention!” says the teacher; but Jamie just can’t calm down or stay focused. The Incredible Speediness of Jamie Cavanaugh explores, with humour, insight and compassion, the hurt and confusion of being different when you can’t help it, and the challenges of being the target of school yard bullying. The hero of this remarkable play is a positive role model for young people with ADHD or other learning challenges.

The Incredible Speediness of Jamie Cavanaugh most recently toured the GTA and throughout Ontario in Spring of 2016. It is currently on tour throughout the United States. This production of Jamie Cavanaugh received Dora nominations for Outstanding Direction (Richard Greenblatt) and Outstanding Performance by an Individual (Rose Napoli).
