Community Events

Carousel Players’ staff, artists and volunteers look forward to meeting you at community events in the Niagara Region!

At Carousel Players, we bring our plays to dozens schools and theatres every year, but we also travel around Niagara to create meaningful connections with our friends and neighbours in all corners of the Region. Whether we are welcoming community members to our annual Community Picnic and Culture Days activities, or participating in festivals with Dragon on the Hill and the Giant Puppet Party, engaging with families is at the core of what we do, year round.

After a busy September with several community events, we look forward to announcing more upcoming events soon! Don’t forget to check out our book tickets page and individual show pages for details on upcoming performance events.

Here is a quick teaser on what is to come:

February – Family Day at the PAC – Drama Garden

March – Join us for our Preview of Simone Half & Half

April – Lig & Bittle is travelling to a school near you! Join us for our public opening for the community at the AEC @ Carousel!

May – Join us for our First Annual Niagara Children’s Festival! 


Bring Carousel Players to Your Event

We’re always looking for new ways to connect with the Niagara community, and we have several activities that can travel to your event.

If you would like to discuss working together please contact

Dragon on the Hill

The Dragon likes to look down at all the people in the town below as they go about their lives. But the Dragon feels like something is missing. With the help of the audience, the Dragon will discover what it needed all along.
