Support Carousel Players
Help us make the shared experience of drama financially accessible for every child.
Support Carousel Players in creating, touring, and teaching theatre for young people.
What it costs to bring
theatre to young people
An average Carousel Players tour costs between $50,000 and $60,000 to create and tour.
Schools pay $450 to $750 per performance, and family audiences pay $10 per ticket. These prices reflect the economic realities of school board arts funding and of household incomes in Niagara.
Donations from individuals, corporations, foundations and government grants help us make up the difference between what school and families can afford and the real costs of professional theatre. That gap can be $35,000 to $45,000 per tour.

Give the Gift of Theatre
Since 1972, 2.8 million students, teachers, and families have seen our productions in communities all over Canada from small rural elementary schools to theatre venues in large cities.
Arts Education has been part of Carousel Players’ work since day one – we have brought children the benefits of drama education for fifty years.
Our Niagara community has supported us since the start, and we give back through free events for families across the Region.
Your contribution and support is vital to our ongoing commitment to create, teach, and share professional Canadian theatre for young audiences.
