About

WeirdBeard is a group of creative and passionate volunteers who produce theatrical experiences using life-sized puppets in blacklight. And our puppeteers are youth and adults with Down syndrome and their families!

 

In April, 2012, our inaugural production of The Three Little Pigs opened to sold-out audiences at the CBU Boardmore Playhouse. Since then we have performed The Three Little Pigs in Lumiere Cape Breton 2012, and again at the Boardmore Theatre in 2013 to the general public and to school children from across Cape Breton Island.

 

We have a new show… The Tortoise & The Hare! May 23, 24, and 25 at Cape Breton University’s Boardmore Theatre. And The Three Little Pigs have gone on the road … see them in Halifax May 10, and 11 at the JL Isley High School, Community ArtsSpace!
