 "Fascinating show for infants demonstrates that theatre can appeal to the youngest audience." – NOW Magazine

Young People's Theatre (YPT) is thrilled to remount its immensely popular and critically-acclaimed show for babies, One Thing Leads to Another due to overwhelming demand. An innovative work of theatre commissioned by YPT and created specifically for infants, this production transforms everyday objects into fabulous, fanciful phenomena as it engages, stimulates and delights baby and parent alike.

Developed from an original concept, research and theme by Maja Ardal in a collective collaboration by Ardal, Audrey Dwyer, Mary Francis Moore and Julia Tribe, One Thing Leads to Another received Dora Mavor Moore Awards in 2016 for Outstanding New Play and Outstanding Performance, Ensemble. It will be presented in The Studio from February 17 to March 3 before touring to the following areas:

Theatre Orangeville, Sunday, March 4 (two shows)
Great Canadian Theatre Company in Ottawa, March 7-11 (two shows/day)
Carousel Players in St. Catharines and the Niagara region, March 14-19 (two shows/day)

As they develop and thrive, infants use all of their senses to learn about the world. In this play, performers engage with these youngest of audience members using music, enticing visuals and tactile experiences. The show features the transformation of everyday objects into fantastical phenomena. When the show is over, kids and caregivers can explore the set and experiment with objects from the play, enhancing their own individual experience.

Most seating for adults and babies at One Thing Leads to Another will be on floor mats and pillows. YPT will have designated stroller parking, diaper changing stations and a quiet area, in order to accommodate the needs of parents/caregivers with infants.
