About Strathcona Elementary school: We are a large inner-city school located on the edge of Vancouver’s Chinatown and the Downtown Eastside. We are a vibrant community comprising of families from a diverse range of backgrounds including 1st and 2nd generation immigrants from Asia and Central America as well as recent refugees from East Africa and the Middle East. Please note as well, Indigenous students represent over 20% of the kids at our school as well as the largest cohort of any elementary school in the Vancouver District.

We are seeking new artists to join our team to help better represent the Strathcona school community. We highly encourage actors with skills in writing, improvisation, and working with kids, as well as any special talents such as dance, puppetry, musical instruments, mask work, singing, voice over, physical theatre, and other skills.

The project occurs between March 28 and May 5, includes three in-school workshops (or on Zoom depending on health and safety regulations), a flexible rehearsal period, and two performances.
