“I can only praise Concrete Theatre for their great work! From the booking agent to the cast and crew, it was an absolute delight to work with them... I am already counting down until next year's performance!”

Lindy Bonn, Children's Program Coordinator, Yellowhead County

She's no shrinking violet…

From the amazing imagination of award winning playwright and comedienne Jana O'Connor (The Irrelevant Show), follow Maisy Daisy and her best buds in their hilarious adventures in the 5th Row of the Garden Plot, as Maisy faces the embarrassing and exciting challenges of blossoming a little sooner than her pals. With the help of Principal Gardener, her parents and her fellow daisies, Maisy figures out how to stand tall, be proud and discover a new found be-leaf in herself! A sweet and funny look at puberty that celebrates the uniqueness and awkwardness of every young person's journey to become a young adult.

Curriculum Ties: English Language Arts; Health and Life Skills: coping with change and transition, personal health, puberty, body image, relationships, responsibility, respect and caring, inclusive behaviors.
