Page 1 Productions is excited to bring back Cardboard Box, an exciting opportunity for local LGBTQ+ youth. Our Theatre and Music Workshops are designed to help participants learn new skills and/or build on existing ones. All participants will perform as part of OutFest in September 2017.  


Are you an actor? A dancer? Or just love to perform? We are looking for LGBTQ+ youth (ages 12-17) interested in creating an original story.  

While working alongside Gary Kirkham, participants will create in a safe, fun and interactive space.

*no previous acting experience required to be involved*


Theatre Instructor: Gary Kirkham

Gary has won numerous awards including Fuse Theatre Award (Calgary), Kitchener Waterloo Arts Award, Samuel French Playwriting Award and Cambridge Arts Award.


Do you play an instrument? Are you a singer-songwriter? We are also looking for youth interested in expanding their skills as a musician. Participants will also perform as part of OutFest.


*minimal music experience required to be involved*
