In the fall of 2013, First Light Theatre produced the play NEW CANADIAN KID by Dennis Foon, a story about the experience of a boy and his mother who were new to Canada -a one hour play seen by approximately 1,000 Grade 4, 5 and 6 students in the Upper Grand District School Board. This play was very successfully received by the student audiences and performed by 3 First Light Theatre students and Courtney Riddell, an FLT Director.
This year, FLT producing will be presenting the show DANNY, KING OF THE BASEMENT for the Upper Grand School Board. This is another Canadian play; this one penned by David S. Craig – a story about one boy’s life of poverty and how he survives his circumstances through the power of friendship, humour and perseverance.
