For the past 45 years, TNB Young Company have been provincial leaders in the creation and delivery of Theatre for Young Audiences. With decades of annual touring to our credit, visiting as many as 70 public schools a year, we have successfully introduced the magic of live theatre to an estimated 750,000 New Brunswick youth, a number roughly equivalent to the province’s current population. Our 2021 season will continue to introduce new audiences to theatre by adapting our program structure to meet current health and safety protocols.
The unwelcomed arrival of COVID-19 has forced many companies to reevaluate the way they do business and TNB Young Company is no exception. After more than four decades spent visiting schools and engaging directly with audiences grades K-12 through live performances and workshops, the ongoing health crisis has provided us with the opportunity to evolve and embrace the abundance of digital tools at our disposal. While theatre will always be best experienced live and in person, our 2021 season will enable us to explore new opportunities in digital engagement, opportunities that we believe will become essential in our ongoing mission to fuel the imagination and creativity of next generation New Brunswickers in the years to come.

Our 2021 season will involve two new initiatives: a collaborative writing process and the creation of new theatre resources for New Brunswick teachers.
Our 2021 season will build relationships, engage imaginations and strengthen theatre’s role in enriching the lives of future generations while also reinforcing our connection with provincial educators prior to our anticipated return to the classroom in 2022.
