Riverdale School Trickster Theatre Residency


By establishing compassion and empathy for the homeless community, students and teachers will begin to learn that in Canada there are approx. 300,000 people left out on the streets and 13 percent of Edmonton’s homeless are children under the age of 18.  Having a home is a fundamental right.  What are some ways we change improve this situation?

  • Full Project Summary

    Working with the all the students we will create an amazing evening of performances that will tackle any number of global issues.

  • Project Outcome

    We are going to learn a lot, have a ton of fun, create a great show, and use our new knowledge to help foster change not only in our community but around the world!


  • How to create projects

    Only a school site admin can set up new projects. Ask you teacher to get help in setting up a project page. Once set up you can write blog articles to support your project. 

    New Projects can be of many types: an event, a take action project, a study, or a Trickster Residency.

  • What is Trickster Theatre

    Trickster Theatre hosts weeklong residencies in Alberta schools. We help create an original show with up to 500 actors - on any theme. We provide the lights, curtains, sounds, costumes, and more!
