We are committed to developing and adding new excellent works for Theatre For Young Audiences to the Canadian canon. We continuously build relationships with and extend our audience through inclusive practices and by visiting far away communities in Quebec and abroad.
Geordie’s annual seven-month 2Play Tour (the longest in Canada) makes its way across Quebec, Ontario and New Brunswick, visiting schools, libraries and community centres. Geordie annually visits such communities as the Eastern Townships, the Lower North Shore, the Gaspé, the Magdalen Islands, the Abitibi and the Outaouais. Often, our shows are the only theatre these communities are exposed to.
Through Geordie’s Mainstage Series, an annual season of plays for family audiences presented in downtown Montreal, the company allows its young audience to have contact with new perspectives and widen their horizons through the lens of live performance. Geordie offers exciting, insightful theatre that is sure to transport all audiences to new worlds and stories!
