SHOWTIME


MODULE 1: SHOWTIME 

Complete this module to learn more about the history of theatre in the land now called Canada! This module is expected to take about 1.5 hours to complete.

Storytelling is an important part of any culture. Stories help us learn about right and wrong, the world around us, and even who we are! Theatre is a type of storytelling. Plays, masks, puppets, and drama are part of how  children in the area of Goulbourn Township have lived and played for hundreds of years!
