DuffleBag Theatre believes that all young people should have access to the performing arts regardless of their economic situation or geographic location.
Rather than performing shows at one theatre and having audiences come to them, DuffleBag Theatre is a touring theatre company so the company travels to perform at different venues like theatres, schools, and festivals. DuffleBag actors are responsible for performing in the show and the set up and tear down as well. All of the production elements are designed to be as simple and portable as possible. Props and costumes pack into duffle bags and additional production elements like the sound system, lights, set/backdrop, are developed with portability in mind so that everything packs into a mini-van for travel.
Students will be challenged to develop a logistics schedule for a 2 week DuffleBag Theatre tour in Northern Ontario. They will have to consider the unique challenges such as travel time between venues, weather, places for accommodation, and production support.
Cost: $510 for up to 50 students.
