          Ignite Banner-03


          At Carousel Theatre for Young People we believe in igniting imaginations and inspiring young people with the power of endless possibility. This holiday season, we invite you to join our family of supporters and donate to our programming.

          Carousel Theatre for Young People is the only theatre in BC that creates a mainstage season of professional theatre specifically for young people. Each year we open our doors to 40,000 young people and their families, many of whom experience theatre for the very first time at CTYP. We passionately believe that theatre enhances a child’s development: it is thought-provoking, stretches the mind and builds a stronger community.

          “Carousel Theatre for Young People: so magical it will even make kids sit still.”
          – The Globe and Mail

          We also believe that each child deserves to experience the magic of live theatre. Each year we make it a priority to ensure that our programs are accessible to all children regardless of their circumstance by donating tickets and providing drama school bursaries. And later this season, CTYP will become the first theatre company in Western Canada to stage a Relaxed Performance specially crafted for autistic children and their families.

          As a not-for-profit charity, ticket sales, drama school registrations and studio rentals provide only 50% of the revenue needed to meet our programming and production expenses. The generosity and continued support of our donor family plays a vital role in sustaining our programs each year.

          Your donation could make a huge difference in a child’s life by creating opportunities to go on marvelous adventures, explore new ways of seeing the world, and feel empowered to think a little differently.

          We invite you to join our family of supporters today. Every donation, large or small, makes a world of difference in our ability to engage and enchant young people in our community. Thank you for helping us ignite imaginations!
