Boys, Girls, and Other Mythological Creatures

Carousel Players


Playing dress-up in the basement is bound to ruffle a few feathers – even if they’re yours.

Discover a secret world of adventure deep in Simon’s basement when he invites his friend Abby to battle a fire-breathing dragon. Meanwhile, back in reality, Simon’s brother Zach isn’t so keen on this fairy tale business – or with Simon dressing up as his “true self.” Join this playful and moving search for a place where we can express who we are without judgment, and find out what we’re made of in the process.

Advisory: play-fighting, shouting

* Relaxed Performances are designed to welcome audience members who benefit from a more relaxed sensory experience and environment, including those with an Autism Spectrum Disorder. They’re also a good way to experience the theatre for the first time! These shows are for everyone, many people choose to attend because they prefer a more inclusive environment at the theatre.

What can you expect? Junior’s relaxed performances will have a more casual approach to noise and movement inside the theatre, the house lights will stay on at a lower level, and the intensity of the performance’s sound, light, or other effects will be reduced.
