Imagine a live fashion show where the designers are children and audience members are the muses! Leading up to Junior, professionals train local children in the rudiments of theatre, fashion design and garment construction. These new, young fashion designers select willing audience members for a fashion makeover. You could walk the runway yourself! So, are you “in” or “chicken”?

With the support and participation from The Neighbourhood Group, we are able to teach children and youth about fashion design to fuel their own form of creativity.

She’s been given a mission by the ministry: to make soup in the classroom. But she’s given a recipe that isn’t exciting, so she chooses to use different ingredients that remind her of her childhood in another country, a country at war that she fled many years ago. As the ingredients simmer, her memories come flooding back. This performance will leave you with a full belly, new memories of your own and flavourful stories to tell.
