Carousel Theatre for Young People

THEATRICAL ADVENTURES FOR KIDS, FAMILIES, AND THE YOUNG-AT-HEART

ARTISTIC DIRECTOR CAROLE HIGGINS

Since 1976, Carousel Theatre for Young People has created exceptional and playful theatre for young people and their families. As BC’s only dedicated mainstage theatre for young audiences, the company strives to foster imaginative, expressive, and engaged communities through the power of the arts and the vital role they play in a child’s development.

New adventures and beloved classics take the stage this season with family stories that explore community and tradition. For audiences of all ages, the company continues inspiring new generations to find their voice and make their mark on the world.

Highlights for the 2016–2017 season at Carousel Theatre for Young People include: Anusree Roy’s vivid look at the streets of Kolkata in Sultans of the Street; A Charlie Brown Christmas, which takes the stage with a live jazz trio and all the charm, wit, and warmth that defines the season; and the return of the innovative Bee Stage for babies and toddlers with a new play, Good Day and Good Night.

At Carousel Theatre for Young People, play lies at the heart of all that they do. They can charm and delight, inspire and discover, but most of all they want to be a part of giving every child the chance to explore the power of imagination while falling in love with theatre. Come play!
