Shadowland is partnering with many wonderful organizations to create a community celebration of birds this spring!

Workshops with Birds Canada, MABELLEarts, Thorncliffe Park Women’s Committee, Waterfront communities and more will create bird costumes, choral birdsongs and learn about our urban birdlife. We will be posting instructional videos and sheets on how to create your own bird headpiece and wings.

 

Join us as we flock to Toronto Island for the culminating parade. Community workshops will run from June 5-10 at the WIA Clubhouse on Ward's Island from 11am-5pm.

 

A spectacular parade will process along the paths and lagoons from Centre Island to St Andrew by the Lake church grounds on June 12 at 2pm.

The Cold War 

Shadowland is proud to announce our collaboration with VideoCabaret on their upcoming production The COLD WAR, Directed by Mac Fyfe and Michael Hollingsworth. 

The COLD WAR bridges the regimes of Mackenzie King, St. Laurent, and Diefenbaker with an international cloak and dagger story. Featuring a trenchcoat full of trouble named Sam Steele, and a demimondes of film noir and B-Movie characters including Igor Gouzenko, Dr. Ewan Cameron, and Gera Munsinger. THE COLD WAR spies on an all-Canadian family from 1945 to 1963, as ex-soldier Tom Muffett becomes an Avro Arrow worker, while his two brats grow up in front of the TV, and his wife Mary Muffett develops bats in her beehive and goes mad.

Previews: May 3 to May 4, 2022.
Opens May 5, 2022.
Runs until June 5, 2022.

As You Like it

Shadowland is thrilled to this season to be designing Canadian Stage's production of As You Like It in High Park!

A romantic comedy for the ages comes vividly to life in High Park. After Rosalind and her cousin Celia escape the Duke’s court, they flee in disguise to the fantastical Forest of Arden. But who (and what!) they find there are beyond their wildest dreams. Featuring new music by Serena Ryder, Kiran Ahluwalia, and Maryem Toller, along with production design by Shadowland Theatre, As You Like It is an epic return to the beloved Toronto tradition of Shakespeare in High Park. Shakespeare’s brilliantly funny play is directed by Anand Rajaram, and brought to life by a wonderfully lovable cast of actors and comedians.

Shadowland Theatre and Flawed Designs are developing a free-to-play, 2D platformer video game called Light & Shadow. This game is designed for young people, centered around anxiety and depression, and explores positive ways to help tackle the difficult journey through them.

Applications to be a part of our Light & Shadow Squad are currently closed. However, we will be seeking participants to help us Beta-Test the game in May 2022. If you'd like to be a part of that process please contact us by clicking the button below, or keep an eye on our social media for the callout.
