Can James keep up his daily marathon without letting his friends or teachers know what’s really going on at home?

James is a young caregiver, trying to balance school work, a social life, and his own health with the demands of taking care of his mother and younger sister. When a school trip comes up, James has to choose between caring for his family or what it would be like to care for himself for a change.

For audiences in grades 5 to 8

Tiny Treasures was originally created with input from youth who are caregivers. Carousel Players has worked with the Young Caregivers Association in Niagara to incorporate the voices and perspectives of young people in the Region who are themselves in similar situations to James. We are collaborating with the Young Caregivers Association to create a resource package for schools to use when they bring this heartfelt performance to their students in the fall of 2023.
