Over the Rainbow Children’s Entertainment Series is Sault Ste Marie’s first live theatre series for children ages 3 and up. The shows have entertained, enchanted, and created lasting memories for many families for over 23 years.

Audiences are introduced to fantastic worlds where the imagination soars, participation is encouraged, and lessons in trust, caring and integrity are learned. 

We bring quality children’s entertainers to our community audiences at an affordable price. We are a not-for-profit volunteer organization and we subsidize ticket pricing through federal, provincial, and municipal arts grants and generous local sponsors.


Upcoming Season
2023 - 2024

Andy G and Friends

FUN musical entertainment for kids and families!

2pm Sunday October 15/ 2023

Community Theatre Centre (White Pines), 1007 Trunk Rd.

Canadian Folk-Roots artist Andy Griffith's love of music has led him to write a number of original songs. His family, friends, and even his pets, have been a key source of inspiration for the songs he writes. This is most evident with his smash hit "OUR CAT FLASH".

Andy's shows mostly feature his own music, with some classic children's music thrown in for good measure. His concerts are interactive and fun for both children and parents.



The Hungry Feast Dish

2 pm Saturday October 21/2023
Community Theatre Centre (White Pines)

From the Kwantien First Nation village of Squa'lets comes the tale of Th'owxiya, an old and powerful spirit that inhabits a feast dish of tempting, beautiful foods from around the world. But even surrounded by this delicious food, Th'owxiya herself craves only the taste of children.

Similar to "Hansel and Gretel" and the northwest First Nations stories about the Wild Woman of the Woods, Th'owxiya - which integrates masks, song and dance - is a tale of understanding boundaries, being responsible for one's actions, forgiving mistakes and finding the courage to stand up for what's right.

The Merry Marching Band

Incredible Musical Clownish Performance

2 pm Sunday February 18/2024

Community Theatre Centre (White Pines)

Underpantsburg is home to a band, or fanfare unlike any other. Under the guidance of a pompous band leader by turns bossy and bird-brained, this merry band sets out to see the world. With plenty of humour, no small amount of eccentricity and a touch of poetry, the band of music-makers makes its merry way—with a honk and a toot and a rat-a-tat-tat—from Quebec to Brazil to Ukraine and back, with a stopover on Planet Mars!

In a resolutely modern performance that combines world music with the clown arts, The Merry Band introduces young audiences to brass instruments and even a little body percussion.


2 pm Saturday March 9/2024

Community Theatre Centre (White Pines)

Inspired by the game Tetris, the dancers dance with the walls, the hall. This extremely physical dance quartet explores how we connect with one another, building a private language to communicate, and then invite others to enter into our world. The village will come alive.

It is for the kids who can't sit still, for the ones who like to climb the walls, and those who can imagine further than they can see. Tetris has been touring Europe for a few years to enthusiastic response.

Tim Holand - Stunt Ventriloquist

2 pm Sunday May 12/2024
** Korah Collegiate **

Stunt Ventriloquist Tim Holland drops jaws and tickles funny bones wit a cast of hilarious characters in a one man show.
