The shows on tour

The Velveteen Rabbit

An Old Friend in a New World

By Jimmy Blais
Directed by Dean Patrick Fleming

September 2024-May 2025

Audience : Elementary School

The Velveteen Rabbit by Jimmy Blais is a play that captures the journey of Riley, who, after moving to a new home, receives a plush rabbit offering comfort and sparking imaginative adventures. The following year, Riley gets an AI assistant, Lexa, leading them into exciting digital escapades. This introduces a conflict between the comforting, imaginative world with the Velveteen Rabbit and the thrilling digital adventures with Lexa, highlighting the themes of emotional connections and the balance between reality and technology.

Megalodon

By Omari Newton and Amy Lee Lavoie
Directed by Jimmy Blais

September 2024-May 2025

Audience : High School/CÉGEP

Megalodon dives into the lives of Akilah, Troy, and the unforgettable Cressida, with a narrative that pulses to the beat of Run The Jewels, hip-hop, jazz, and singer-songwriter vibes. It’s a comedic, yet deep look into teenage friendship, identity, and grief, where music isn’t just a backdrop—it’s a lifeline. Imagine Akilah and Troy navigating their world, their losses, armed with wit, humor, and a shared love for the raw, electrifying energy of Run The Jewels. This play is an anthem for the misfits, a tribute to those tunes that help us feel seen, and a reminder that laughter and music can carry us through the toughest times.
