What’s Happening at First Light Theatre

First Light Theatre has been commissioned by the Upper Grand District School Board to present the play DANNY, KING OF THE BASEMENT to approximately 1200 – 1400 kids in Guelph and Dufferin County between April 8th and 15th.

This Canadian play by David S. Craig is a funny, poignant and uplifting story of Danny “Delco” Carter. Danny is the ‘king of moving’. In two years, he and his unemployed Mother have moved more times than most kids lose teeth; there’s just never the money to pay the rent, buy food or shoes. But far from being overcome by his homelessness and poverty, Danny’s imaginative play creates a sense of community that allows his friends to cope with their problems and, ultimately, to help Danny.

We have four talented actors from Guelph who will be performing this play at the River Run Centre, Tytler Public School and Princess Elisabeth Public School in Orangeville and we thank the Upper Grand District School Board for allowing this wonderful story to come to life. Teachers who bring a class are provided with a Classroom Study Guide to work with their students both before and after the show, exploring the themes, characters and situations that arise in the play.
We are proud to present this moving and funny story about how to overcome some of life’s more serious challenges through humour, friendship and courage.
