Any production by Green Thumb Theatre is guaranteed to make a good night out for kids and their parents.
In the words of one playwright: “ Green Thumb Theatre was founded in 1975 to develop original Canadian plays for young audiences and has since become known as one of the country’s leading theatre companies for young people.
It explores social issues that are relevant to the lives of children and youth in an accessible way, by telling the stories of young people just like themselves. You can see anvilcentre.com/attend or for more information, or you can buy tickets online at
