Celebrating Leaders


Manning Elementary is a kindergarten to grade six community school with a student enrollment of 130 students; there is one classroom at each grade level.  School staff is comprised of 20 professional and support staff.

Manning Elementary School and Paul Rowe Jr./Sr. High School are small rural schools located in Manning, Alberta, which is approximately 600 km north of Edmonton.  As both schools are remote in location, they are deemed “schools of necessity” by the Alberta Government.  The residency will include students from both schools, and will take place at Manning Elementary.

Our students, teachers, and staff are very excited to work with Trickster Theatre in the 2017-18 school year to put on our show on Celebrating Leaders.

We greatly appreciate your help and look forward to sharing our finished work with you!

  • Full Project Summary

    Manning Elementary will create segments examining the lives of current, past, and future leaders. Topics will include: the important role of the chief in First Nations; an interview with our mayor Sunni-Jeanne Walker; the effect of leaders on the community; and a portrayal of how our students can become great leaders.

  • Project Outcome

    Taking part in this residency will inspire our students to take initiative to become great leaders. They will see the steps taken by their research subjects, which they will link to their future goals to build a means of achieving those goals. Reaching out to local leaders will develop the community bonds and allow our students to show our community the hard work of our local leaders. The collaboration between the younger and older students will support this community development. Older students will take leadership roles to help guide the younger students, while the younger students are inspired by support received from their older classmates.


  • 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!
