Trickster Theatre logoOur students at Red Deer Lake School will work with professional artists from Trickster Theatre for one week to create an original performance based around our theme.

How Being a Canadian Kid has Changed in the Last 150 Years


RDL is a strong and vibrant K – 9 Learning Community. Our School’s motto, “Continuing the Tradition of Excellence” speaks to our reputation and tradition of strong academic performance, quality athletics,and diverse visual and performing arts. We strive to consistently meet and exceed provincial, system, and community expectations.

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 How Being a Canadian Kid Has Changed in the Last 150 Years.

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

  • Full Project Summary

    Red Deer Lake School’s residency with Trickster Theatre will create a show that focuses on “How Being a Canadian Kid Has Changed in The Last 150 Years”. Our goal is for students to gain an appreciation of the similarities and differences in the lifestyles we have now versus 150 years ago.

    We will be looking at topics like: a day in the life of a kid from 1867, how technology has changed the way we live, a typical school day - a then and now comparison, and how families have changed. We will also look at changes in farming practise, how kids engage with the world - then and now - and the change in the way we relate to our First Nations neighbours.

    These topics will give students an insight into how life has already changed so much and let them ask questions about what the next 150 years might bring.

  • Project Outcome

    Being a K-9 school we feel it is important for our students to work collaboratively towards a common theme, “How Being a Canadian Kid Has Changed in The Last 150 Years”. The residency will be a teaching tool that unites our school and allows us to build relationships between and among teachers and students. This opportunity will allow us to further bond as a school community, allowing our students to express themselves creatively, build confidence that will help them now and throughout their lives.


  • 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!
