On Thursday, December 8, 2022, an intrepid group of fearless theatre creators will gather at Small World Music Centre and work their magic, creating a show in two days from scratch- this time with PUPPETS! We’d love to tell you more about the show, but it doesn’t exist yet; all we know is that it’s going to be amazing, brand new, and unbelievably fresh!

Come join us for a one-night only event celebrating spontaneity and the moment, play and the joy of creation. Live In-Person, and Streaming options are available for your comfort.

Please note: The Streaming option of this event will only be available live during the time of the event; no recorded version will be available. Patrons who choose the Streaming option will receive a link to the event by email prior to December 8.

If you have any questions, please contact: [email protected].


From Artscape Youngplace’s website: Artscape Youngplace is fully accessible by Ontario standards, with a wheelchair ramp at the 180 Shaw Street doors, an elevator servicing every floor and a fully accessible washroom on every level. The nearby 63 Ossington bus on the TTC is wheelchair accessible. Click here to view Artscape’s full Accessible Customer Service policy.

We regret that we have not been able to secure an ASL Interpreter for this event. For the live stream, automatically generated Closed Captions will be available.

Health and Safety Policy

If you are unwell, please stay home.

There are a number of airborne viruses circulating (Covid- 19, flu and RSV) that pose a health risk to all. Out of an abundance of caution and care for those who may be immunocompromised, or who care for someone who is high risk, we at Common Boots continue to adhere to strict health protocols.

Masks that fully cover the nose and mouth, and are at minimum medical grade are required to be worn at all times while attending the in-person performance. Please request a mask from our Front of House team if you do not have access to a mask, or forgot yours at home.

In addition to our mask protocols, for your protection, all staff, volunteers and performers require proof of vaccination and will be tested for COVID-19 on the day of the performance. No staff, volunteer or performer will be on site if unwell.

Hand sanitizer will be available at Front of House.

If you booked to attend in person, but on December 8 are unwell, please let us know and we will happily send you the link to the live stream so you can participate remotely. Please contact [email protected].
