Pegasus


Pegasus is an enhanced theatre program for young people in Grades 7-12. It will provide exciting opportunities for aspiring actors, as well as for anyone interested in “behind the scenes”: stage management, costumes, sets, props, technical, etc.

In January, we launched our Canada 150 project: to create and perform a show to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday. A small group of Pegasus members met weekly and, with guidance from two Unicorn Theatre alumnae, came up with a concept and wrote the script for “Ooh Canada!”, which is an original show – featuring songs by Canadians – about the many facets of Canada’s personality and culture. Auditions were held and rehearsals began in May. The show will be performed at several libraries, the Museum of Natural History and our theatre between June 24 and July 1. Please go to the home page for a full schedule of performances.

Since the Pegasus program started in 2016, we have hosted several workshops on different aspects of the theatre: Musical Theatre, Acting Techniques, Improv, Stage Makeup, Lighting and Sound and Stage Combat. Long term plans could include weekly classes during the year, a two-week acting intensive in the summer (like Neptune’s Youth Performance Company or YPCo), and an annual musical production. The actual shape of the program will depend on the feedback and suggestions received from the participants.
