Every day, Nicky wakes up with knots in her stomach and worries in her brain. While most kids can’t wait for recess so they can hit the playground, anxious Nicky would rather spend her time safely hidden away in the school’s sick room with her Big Book of Birds. In the sick room, Nicky can enjoy her routine in peace and quiet – but when Milo, a rambunctious boy with diabetes, comes barreling into her life, Nicky’s peace and quiet turns to chaos! At first, these polar opposites’ worlds collide, but as time goes on, cautious Nicky and adventurous Milo both come to discover they may have more to learn from each other than they think.

POOF is the story of Gill, a self described, “extremely average 16 year old girl”. She isn’t cool like 16 year old girls in movies, and she isn’t a loser like 16 year old girls in movies, either. She is just a 16 year old girl.
So why does your self described “extremely average 16 year old girl” interrupt her school’s production of Romeo and Juliet to declare that something about its definition of love feels inadequate? Gill is processing the death of her Grandma, her parents’ impending divorce, and that she has been cast as the minor role of Balthazar in R and J, while her crush, Qasim, is cast as Romeo.
POOF is about love, grief, change and how language can fall short to describe the ways in which we are feeling. It is about how sometimes, everything happens at once. It is about how illegible notes from a dying loved one might lead you to find a bit of what you are looking for in an unexpected place.
From the creators of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (“Magical!… Jaw dropping!” – the New York Times) and Jungle Book (“A Must See” – Broadway World) comes a new theatrical adaptation of the original Sci-Fi, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Frankenstein is the third in the “connection” trilogy of high-tech classics from Kidoons.
This electrifying new stage production uses immersive comic book design and playful theatrical techniques to reanimate the sci-fi classic for a new generation! Co-created by Rick Miller, Craig Francis and Paul Van Dyck, this streaming version adapts the novel to confront modern issues of climate change, artificial intelligence, and our relationship to technology… monsters of our own making! When a young graphic novelist geek named Mary discovers the journal of Dr. Victor Frankenstein, she’s drawn into his uncanny story of secret experiments to conquer death. She discovers that we all need to face our own fears… before they face us!
Geordie Theatre is located on the unceded Indigenous lands of the Kanien’kehá:ka (Mohawk) nation of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. Tiotià:ke (known as Montréal) has existed as a meeting place of many First Nation peoples, including but not limited to the Abenaki, Anishinaabeg (Algonquin), and the Huron-Wendat. We extend our deepest respect to the elders of these communities and to all Indigenous peoples who carry the history of this island’s land and waters – caring for it and calling it home. We are honoured and privileged to share stories on this land.
We wish to also acknowledge that we are grateful to those seeking sustainable solutions to our global climate crisis, so that we may continue to inspire and challenge our audiences near and far.
