May 18 – 19

In this hilarious and outlandish story, the lives of six teenagers from a Canadian chamber choir are cut short in a freak accident aboard a roller coaster. When they awake in limbo, a mechanical fortune teller invites each to tell a story to win a prize like no other — the chance to return to life. This popular musical is a funny, moving look at what makes a life well-lived!

*Youth Production Company is a small group of theatre-oriented students who come together to produce a show. The whole process, from show proposal to the stage, is student-led and allows them to experience the full responsibility of production. It develops soft skills, allows an environment for students to create art on their own terms, and creates opportunities to add exceptional and unique portfolio material. The next round of YPC auditions will begin this summer and we invite any high school-aged students to try out!
