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.
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).

In 2018, Carousel Players is starting after school drama classes at a limited number of schools in Niagara. This program, supported by the Ontario Trillium Foundation, is a test program for creating Niagara-wide after school program in 2019.
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.
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.
