Magnus Theatre has been entertaining local audiences for more than 40 years.


THUNDER BAY – ENTERTAINMENT – Magnus Theatre is very proud to present INVISIBLES, a play about invisible disabilities, an umbrella term that encapsulates a spectrum of hidden disabilities.

INVISIBLES is a Collective Creation Project of Magnus Theatre’s Theatre in Education program created and produced with the generous support of the Thunder Bay Community Foundation and the Ontario Arts Council.  Teenagers from across Thunder Bay began working on the project in the fall of 2016, with the premise that theatre as an art form, using creative expression and community engagement, can be instrumental in bringing about transformative social change.  The project aims to create awareness of the challenges people face. The play specifically examines autism, anxiety, depression and learning disabilities. In 2012, Statistic Canada reported that an estimated 3.8 million Canadian reported being limited in their daily activities due to a disability.

INVISIBLES spans two days in the lives of four high school students, who must face an unexpected event that throws them into turmoil. There is more to the students than meets the eye, though: each student has a living breathing invisible disability that shadows them, influencing their decisions, reactions and overall well-being.

INVISIBLES is based on the experience of local teens, giving the play an authentic youth voice that delivers an important message; just because something is invisible, doesn’t mean that it’s not real.
