Every show is evaluated by our Educational Advisory committtee to determine the curriculum connections in the play. These are listed on the show pages.

Carousel Players works closely with Brock University’s Education Department to create study guides that correspond with each play. Students in Brock’s Faculty of Teacher Education create age-appropriate activities for students that follow the Ontario Curriculum. Study guides can be downloaded here.

Carousel also offers free in-class drama workshops called Playlinks to the schools who book our plays.

Parents play an important role in bringing Carousel plays to their child’s school, from encouraging administrators to book to helping to fundraise to cover the cost of the performance ($600 per school for up to 250 children).

Yes!  Carousel Players runs after school drama classes at schools across Niagara. If you would like our program to come to your school, you can contact our Arts Education Coordinator at education@carouselplayers.com.

We will also offer a full-day PD Day camp on November 15th in partnership with the Niagara Symphony Orchestra. In March 2020, we will offer our second March Break Camp for grades JK – 6. Registration is open for both of these programs.

Each year we offer Summer Theatre School day camps for children between the ages of 5 – 13 in July and August.

Our plays are created with elementary school students in mind, with more specific ages during specific times of the year. Generally our winter tour  is for grades 4-8, and the spring tour is for JK to 3.

Age and grade ranges can be found on each show’s page.

Each Carousel Players show travels around Niagara on Community Tours in February and April/May. Some years we also offer a tour in the fall.

Our performances take place in public venues, such as community centres and theatres. We always choose accessible, family-friendly locations.

We visit at least three or four Niagara municipalities with each tour. Specific dates and times are listed on each show’s page and on our facebook.

Tickets to Carousel Players Community Tour performances are $10 for children and $15 for adults. When we partner with other companies, prices may vary.

During the winter tour, there is one free performance – the Debra McLauchlan Memorial show. In the spring tour there is a Pay-What-You-Can benefit performance for the AFC. The location for both of these seasonal events changes annually.

Tickets can be purchased through Eventbrite, Facebook events, our partner companies, and at the performance.

Visit the show pages for links to buy online or call us at 905-682-8326 to reserve tickets and pay at the door.

We realize that life with children can be unpredictable, so Carousel Players will refund any tickets purchased through our Eventbrite and Facebook platforms up to 24 hours before the show.

If you’ve purchased through one of our partner companies, please check with them about their refund policy.
