"Big laughs, lots of heart." - Now Magazine

Before they must commit to the Amish faith forever, nineteen-year-old twins Hannah and Ruth leave the comfort of their sheltered community to explore the outside world for the first time. After finding themselves stranded in one of Toronto’s roughest neighbourhoods, all their plans go up in smoke and they end up working at an illegal marijuana grow-op. Grow is an outrageously fun, big-hearted musical, that explores sisterhood, community, and the legalization of a once-forbidden weed.

"This musical, from the composers of Prom Queen, is one of the most musically exciting shows I have come across in years. I find the story compelling and surprising, the musical incredibly uplifting, and the contemporary relevance irresistible. This musical reminds us that we live in an incredible country that allows all points of view to grow. It’s pure joy." – Dennis Garnhum, Artistic Director

Grade Recommendation: 9+
