Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Around Young Peoples Theatre

Family Tested

Reserve your free seats to Prologue's free showcase on May 28!

As the author of Toronto Fun Places, always interested in anything related activities for children, I joined the board of Prologue eight years ago to support this fantastic not-for-profit organisation facilitating the presentation of over 2,200 shows in schools and public venues throughout the province and I think now is a good time to let you know about the yearly free showcase they offer to the general public.

This year, returning to the Young People's Theatre, on Tuesday May 28 at 7 p.m., Prologue will offer the excerpts of six quality shows for children. The line-up will include companies with international reputation such as Motus O Dance Theatre (they will be performing at the Markham Theatre on May 30 at the cost of $30/adults and $22/children but you'll get to see them in action for free), the truly original Corpus, the wacky Puzzle Theatre from Montreal, the music of Sonic Escape and The Celtic Rathskallions and Tribal Vision Dance.

It is FREE! But you must reserve your seats by cliking on this link to secure a place.
