“If we feed our children's imaginations on the dramatic equivalent of Big Macs and Kraft Dinner, we can't nourish them in a love for theatre at its finest. Why put up with junk theatre, when you can opt for Sprouts?”
Paula Simons, The Edmonton Journal, June 13, 2009

Sprouts returns for an 9th year with a fresh crop of four brand new short plays for kids and their families.  Once again, local playwrights from diverse cultural backgrounds will share their newest works.  Bring a picnic lunch and join us in the Library Theatre and Lobby to enjoy storytelling, music, art and theatre – all for kids.  After the plays you can write or draw your thoughts in our special art garden plot.  The Sprouts Festival is produced with support from Young Alberta Books.

In addition to our regular programming, come help us wrap up our 20th Anniversary with the official launch of our Sprouts! An Anthology of New Plays from Concrete Theatre, a new collection of the cream of the crop plays from eight years of Sprouts. Published by the prestigious Playwrights Canada Press, Canada's foremost publishers of new Canadian Plays, the book launch will be held at 3:30 pm on Saturday June 12th in the lobby of the Stanley A. Milner Library Theatre right after the plays, and will include author signings and cupcakes!  Please join us if you can!
