To all theatre for young audience lovers & supporters:

First Light Theatre will be bringing down the curtain on its 17 year run in Guelph on May 31, 2017. It is a bittersweet announcement as we think back on so many shows, programmes and creative adventures ~ not to mention the hundreds of fantastic kids who brought such amazing light to each stage where they performed. We hope that our work has inspired young people to discover their unique talents and insights about themselves and others as they experienced the excitement of learning and creating in each class, camp or production programme.

We send out our appreciation and deep thanks for your support over the years as we take our final bow.


Come see the show and join Mowgli, a boy raised by wolves, the fierce tiger Shere Khan, whom all the animals in the jungle fear, Baloo the bear who becomes Mowgli’s best friend and Bagherra, the wise black panther who guides them through their trials and adventures.  This story is an often-told and well-loved favourite of kids and adults alike ~not to be missed!

First Light Theatre’s Introductory, Junior and Senior Training Programmes have been a staple and a trademark of First Light Theatre since 2001.  From ages 8 – 18, kids get to play, create and perform through not only structured rehearsal time but also enjoy specific skill training workshops with professional artist educators in the areas of voice, movement, acting, stage fighting, choreography and mask. Our young actors work over many months to prepare a full length production for 6 final performances complete with set, costume, props, lighting and sound for a full, true theatrical experience!
