Carousel Players has been dedicated to bringing educational, professional theatre shows to schools for over 50 years as a tool to support and encourage learning in an exciting and memorable format. This coming season we are presenting the theme of nurture, with all our stories guiding audiences to look around at the world, at nature, at other people and ask: how can I help? What can I give?

What value does bringing a show to my school have for my students? After years of separation and isolation driven by a need to stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic it is more important now than ever that we bring students together in a shared experience to rekindle the sense of community that is strengthened through unique communal experiences such as live theatre. Performance days build long lasting memories for students. Additionally, performances help students retain educational information, improve communication skills, promote emotional wellness, increase academic performance and engagement, and much more. 

We believe so strongly in the emotional, educational, and communal benefits of live performances that we have made it even easier to bring our award-winning theatre to your students. 

No Cancellation Fees“You don’t pay until you see the play!” That means no down payments, no booking fees, no admin fees, and absolutely no loss of precious school funds due to cancellations. 

No Organizing Field Trips – Carousel Players is a touring company and we come directly to your school gymnasium. You can even invite a neighbouring school over and share the experience with even more young people in your community.

No Extra Lesson Planning – All of our productions come with educational resources and curriculum connections so there is no extra work for any of your school staff and educators.
