Upcoming Season
2024 - 2025

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.


Evolution of
B Boying

Break Dancing with Canada's top street dancers!

2 pm Saturday November 9/2024
Community Theatre Centre (White Pines)

B-boying and B-girling (street dance), born in the early 1970s, is an integral component of contemporary black history and hip-hop culture. This dynamic street dance now has a significant international following and reputation. In addition to its roots in Funk music and African American culture, the powerful acrobatic aspects of B-boying, or “breaking”, make it one of the most unique dances in the world.
Dancer-choreographer Crazy Smooth brings together some of Canada’s best street dancers to present a show that will amaze and inspire participants and teachers alike, while educating them on the evolution of the dance, its culture and music.


A fabulous adventure with Puppets and Poetry

2 pm Sunday January 26/2025

Community Theatre Centre (White Pines)

Noah, a child passionate about the tropical world, lives with his cheerful accomplice, a parakeet named Naughty Heart, as well as his mother and father who argue a lot. On Halloween morning, Naughtyheart walks through the door. Noah blames the shock of his friend's sudden departure in a world deaf to his distress. Sad and angry, Noah only thinks of one thing: finding Coeur-Coquin to add a little color to his daily life. At the height of his sentence, Noah's room is transformed into an unusual jungle through which he courageously ventures to find his friend. In this mystical journey, our hero meets strange, disturbing or inspiring characters who accompany his quest. This fabulous adventure tells with poetry how we can emerge transformed from a painful ordeal.

Carnival of the Animals

2 pm Sunday February 2/2025

Community Theatre Centre (White Pines)

The Carnival of Animals is a classical music composition by Camille Saint-Saëns, often used to introduce children to the world of classical Western music with movements devoted to elephants, chickens, and turtles. Our production features Trevor Copp's interpretation of these animals - watch him become a clucking, growling, and flapping parade of animals who bridge this wonderful music to the hearts of children and adults alike. 


Each animal will also be introduced by  poems considering the ecological role these animals play in this world we share, poems that were longlisted for the Canadian Society for Children's Literature awards. The Carnival of Animals tours as a solo show or as a performance with orchestras. 

Circus Incognitus

2 pm Sunday March 2/2025

Community Theatre Centre (White Pines)

In Circus Incognitus, virtuoso clown Jamie Adkins is the vulnerable everyman. An expert at comedy born of desperation, Jamie's performance is humble and unguarded. Adkins deftly escorts the audience along his poetic journey with sidesplitting wit.
