Featuring children from The Regent Park School of Music, this is the only public performance of Elijah’s Kite scheduled this season!

One of the new programs we are introducing this year is called Child’s Play and is geared toward families. Parents (or grandparents!) can now enjoy a Saturday matinee performance while their children (ages 8-12) are taken through a drama workshop in one of our studios.
After the show the parents are invited to join their children upstairs to see what we’ve been exploring and even participate in a drama game or two. Children should bring their imaginations, be comfortably dressed (running shoes, loose fitting clothing, etc.) and ready to play.
The first of our Child’s Play series begins on Saturday, October 20th, so bring your family down to the Tarragon Theatre and see what’s developing together.
