Peacemaker by David Holman is Suitable for Grades K-6, it runs for approximatly 45 minutes. In times past, the Blue people and the Red people lived in harmony. One day a fight broke out and a wall was put up between the two lands. From then on, the Reds and the Blues have lived on either side of the wall in suspicion and mistrust of each other, until the day that a young Red and a young Blue meet…PEACEMAKER is a charming parable of our culturally diverse society, designed to show the possibility of co-operation overcoming conflict.
Skin by David Foon is suitable for Grades 7-12, it also has an approximate running time of 45 minutes.
SKIN focuses on contemporary race relations as seen through the eyes of four teenagers experiencing racial prejudice at their high school. The Magnus Theatre Production of SKIN will be adapted to reflect regional demographics.
Tickets are only $7 – Affordable for all.
