“Sprouts is devoted to the organic principle that the theatrical repertoire grows when new scripts are fed and watered. Already, the festival, the only one of its kind in the country, has a roster of contagious successes...”
Liz Nicholls, The Edmonton Journal

“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

We're 10 years old!

Sprouts returns for its 10th Festival with a fresh crop of four brand new short plays for kids and their families. Local playwrights from diverse cultural backgrounds will share their newest works in these staged readings. 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 and the Edmonton Downtown Business Association.

2011 Writers: Kevin Kerr, Valerie Mason-John aka Queenie, Tololwa M. Mollel and Christine Sokaymoh Frederick.
