100 Schools Tour - 2020
The Grand’s 100 Schools program, launched in 2017, tours a professional theatre production to elementary school gymnasiums and auditoriums across London and the surrounding area, all at no cost to the schools.
This program will not run during the 2023-24 season.
In Spring 2020, we toured a new play, Juno’s Reward.
Written and Directed by Megan Watson
London and Area Tour | February 20 to May 15, 2020
Juno's Reward is about Juno, a bright, young student, who is obsessed with all things social media, and is falling behind on her school work. She befriends her school’s new custodian, and they bond over their shared love of music. When a last minute school assignment results in Juno going viral online, her accidental fame has some unintended consequences, and she is confronted with a difficult choice. This new play, developed through the COMPASS New Play Development Program, is a celebration of Canadian music and the brilliance and talent of our region’s students. The play also features an original song composed by London’s own Richard Gracious.
