Maison Théâtre is very happy to finally be able to reopen its doors and is looking forward to welcoming the family and school audience back to its closed hall for several months. With recent government guidelines authorizing the upcoming reopening of the red zone venues, the Maison Théâtre will be able to present four of the eight artistic proposals planned for its winter-spring 2021 season. These shows, which run from April 9 to June 20, will reach young people of all ages. Tickets go on sale Monday, March 22 at noon.
HERE ARE THE FOUR SHOWS PRESENTED IN THEATERS THIS SPRING
JUSQU’AU BOUT – New prodution!
Théâtre Bluff in co-production with Le Grand Bleu and les Coups de Théâtre, Momix and Compli’Cité (France)

Text: Luc Tartar

At the opening of a construction site, two skeletons are discovered on a wasteland. The news of this exceptional archaeological discovery travels the world and this shock wave deeply affects five characters whose lives will be turned upside down by the event.
After the resounding success of S’embras, the author Luc Tartar and the director Eric Jean are reunited by the Theatre Bluff for this show created following workshops with different groups of young people. On stage, in a kind of intergenerational polyphony, slices of life resonate and respond in a fluid but percussive language, a rhythmic poetic joust, which suggests the urgency to say, to live.
JE SUIS WILLIAM

What if William Shakespeare’s great texts were in fact the work of his twin sister Margaret? Yet in England, in the 16th century, it was not only forbidden for women to perform in theatre, but those who could read and write were accused of witchcraft and could be condemned to the pyre. When he discovers his sister’s exceptional talent, William is torn between his desire to protect her and his desire to make her words shine.
A funny and touching historical fiction, this musical theatre production takes a close look at the place of women in society. Here is a unique opportunity to see this award-winning and unanimously acclaimed work, presented to sold out at the Maison Théâtre in the winter of 2019.
Theatre Samsara in co-production with L’Arrière Scène
For 5 to 10 year olds
Concept: Liliane Boucher and Jean-François Guilbault
Director: Liliane Boucher
Cast: Jean-François Guilbault, Philomène Lévesque-Rainville and Guillaume St-Amand
Two characters are delivered on stage all packed. On the box of one is written “Watch out” and on the box of the other, “Fragile”. A bit like the first man and woman in the Amazon era, this expressive duo gradually becomes familiar with its space and language, and discovers a catalog of objects more tempting than the other…
Between laughter and indignation, this highly tasty clown theatre show – in which burlesque situations follow one another at the same rate as the disposable glasses used – tackles the now inescapable subject of overconsumption and its excesses.
DEPUIS LA GRÈVE
Production The Incomplete
For 1 to 4 year olds
Idea and direction: Josiane Bernier, Audrey Marchand and Laurence P Lafaille
Cast: Annabelle Pelletier Legros or Sarah Villeneuve-Desjardins
Evoking the daily life that flows with the waves for the fisherman’s wife, this solo without words offers a sensory and contemplative experience. In an intimate space incorporating video landscape and sound spatialization, young and small will be lulled as much by the echo of the coastline as by undulating images. Immersive contemporary technologies, perfectly suited to very young children, combines here the beauty of the elements of nature that chant coastal life.
FOR DAYCARES AND CPES
From April 28 to June 11, the Maison Théâtre and théâtre des Petites Souls offer to daycares and CPEs with a courtyard or private field an outdoor artistic performance, designed to meet young people in the context of health instructions and offer them a moment of laughter, sharing and magic: TIRE-TOI A BÛCHE!
Around the fire, safe, children must choose stones that inspire objects and characters, all pieces of an amazing collective story coming to life, in sounds and images, before the curious and amazed eyes. To this performance are added a participatory song to move their feet, as well as a time of exchange with the storyteller during their morning snack.
