Simon Soucis

Simon is an apprentice inventor. When Mo, his mentor, entrusts him with the Imaginarium, the youngster finds himself faced with a mountain of responsibilities, and it’s panic time! His bad ideas pile up and transform into a giant worry monster that escapes from the workshop. To get him back, Simon embarks on a perilous journey that has him facing his fears and discovering his strengths.

Throughout the adventures of the young inventor and the encounters with many colourful and creative characters, Simon Soucis takes on themes of imagination, personal growth and self-confidence. A play full of twists and turns that encourages children to recognize and tame their emotions.

Sustainable commitment

This season, we are committed to reduce our carbon footprint while on tour, among other things for the shows we are presenting in schools. With a view to compensate our greenhouse gas emissions in 2022-2023, we will make an annual donation to the non-profit organization Tree Canada. We are committed to plant and nurture at least 50 trees (mass seedling) in British Columbia where there is a need for reforestation or afforestation. If you would like to support our initiative, please let us know through our Young Audience Peformances contact form, or call us at 604 736 2616.
