Wide Open Theatre

On March 19th our Pre K,.. Monday am, K,- Monday, Gr.1 to Gr. 4 students will be enjoying a Fantastic Performance by Wide Open Theatre.



An unconventional re-tailing by Wide Open, a lyrical shadow puppet show for all ages.

Troubled by the pollution that plagues her undersea world, the little mermaid gives up her tail and her voice to find the creatures responsible for the destruction of her home. This life-changing adventure introduces us to an ocean of marine life, a ship full of mariners and a passionate mermaid who wants to change the world. This 45-minute puppet escapade features giant puppets and rod puppets in an all-ages adventure.



The cost of this school cultural event is $5 for each child. Please note that your Power School Account will be charged $5 per child
