DYING TO BE THIN
Touring Nobember 4, 2013 - January 17, 2014
Grades 6 - 12
By Linda A. Carson
Amanda’s dream is to be thin. Obsessed with her weight, she thinks she can’t be happy unless she’s the right shape. She becomes a recluse, her grades are slipping and her friends are disappearing. A critical success at MTYP in 2004, Dying to be Thin returns to the theatre and goes on the road throughout Manitoba, sharing its message about issues of self-esteem and self-image.
“Makes a serious social issue easy to talk about... relevant to all females and males and all age groups.” - St. John’s High School
Touring February 10 - May 16, 2014
Grades K - 6
By John Lazarus
An all-time favourite with Manitoba educators and parents, Night Light looks at a variety of children’s fears and anxieties. Goodge is a nasty one-eyed bedtime monster who lives in six-year-old Tara’s bureau. But only she (and the audience) can see him. Meanwhile, her older brother Victor is afraid of an increasingly difficult bully on the playground. Playwright John Lazarus uses ingenuity and laughter to help students identify and cope with their everyday fears.
“Bullies and fear are two things that many children encounter on a regular basis. The content of the play offered the opportunity to examine both of these issues in a way that offered assurance and support.” - William Whyte School
