NEWCOMERS: Stories of Refugee and Immigrant Children

Newcomers: Stories of Refugee and Immigrant Children” had a fantastic rehearsal process and an even more fantastic production week, where we built relationships that will last a lifetime! This past April we had the pleasure of performing at Pier 21 with our new friends at the YMCA Centre for Immigrant Programs: Youth Outreach Collective Creation Project, where we had 4 very successful school shows, followed by 2 public shows that included a presentation by the youth of the program. These shows have received amazing feedback and the team for Newcomers are ecstatic for the school tour in the fall, thank you to everyone who came out to see the production!
