All Children’s Stage shows begin at 4pm and last for approximately one hour. The October 1st and February 4th shows take place in the Bryan Jones Theatre and the April 15th show and workshop will be at the gymnasium. All three on the grounds of Lakefield College School (4391 County Rd 29, Lakefield, Ontario).
Our performances happen three times throughout the year. We strive for a mix of live performances that will offer families a taste of every style of stage performance.
