ABOUT THE FAMILY SERIES
Our Family Series - Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA)’s mandate is to create engaging, meaningful theatre experiences that stimulate the imaginations, minds and hearts of young people and their families. It provides a wonderful introduction to live performance for school-aged children and promotes the wonders of reading, singing, storytelling, and dance through the magic of theatre.
TYA honours the intelligence of audiences of all ages and endeavours to ignite the unlimited capacity of youth for compassion and an understanding of diverse human experiences. We encourage critical thinking through the development of educational materials that explore each production’s more complex and challenging themes. Our dynamic productions help inspire a life-long love of theatre and the shared experience of artistic expression.
Last season audiences loved our pre-show activities and meeting the cast after the show in costume to get autographs and pictures. We’re proud to continue these added features this season along with our Relaxed Performance.
Relaxed performances are well-suited to all young audiences and have been established to welcome people who will benefit from a more relaxed performance environment, including people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
This performance can also be a good introductory experience for first-time theatregoers. The performance itself is unchanged, but there is a more relaxed attitude to noise and movement. With adjusted lights and sound, calming centres, social narratives, and trained staff and volunteers to ensure a memorable experience for everyone. As part of this initiative, Kelowna Actors Studio has created a visual guide that provides a detailed description of what it's like to visit the theatre.
