About Carousel Players

Our Guiding Principals

Our Vision & Mandate

Carousel Players is an award-winning professional theatre company for young audiences.

We believe live theatre develops artistic awareness, learning skills and a sense of well-being in children.

We are committed to the development of new work and the production of theatre that entertains and challenges our audiences.

We present inspiring and creative plays for children in theatres, schools and other performance venues.

We ensure that our performances, summer theatre school, and outreach programs can be accessed by all children and families regardless of their socio-economic background.
