SensoryBox TYA

Hosted by Young People's Theatre

Explore the electric connection between our senses and the imagination with SensoryBox TYA.

Don’t miss this fun and fascinating tactile experiment! The adventure begins with a wrapped box delivered to your door or classroom (no peeking until the event!). On the day of your performance, you’ll tune into a livestream, pop on a blindfold (included), and begin your tactile trek along with an online audience of young people. In the comfort of your own home or classroom, and alongside the gentle guiding voices of the host, you’ll discover the mysterious contents of your box – and the pure fun of play!

SensoryBox TYA is both a delightful exploration of the unknown and a comforting reframing of everyday items. The experience offers a sense of connectivity, discovery and delight from afar. By presenting objects to young viewers at home or school, we’re creating a bridge to the immediacy of live performance.

Public Livestreams: Dec. 4, 5, 11, 12, 18, 19, 26, 27, 28, 29 & 30 at 11AM & 2PM


A pre-recorded ASL version is available.  We are including an ASL-English interpreter, the ability to pause and return to the pre-recorded performance at any time, as well as captions.

YOUNG PEOPLE’S THEATRE (YPT) is the oldest professional theatre company in Toronto and is a national producer and presenter of theatre for young audiences – the first in North America and the largest of its kind in Canada. Over the past 54 years YPT has staged many of the most important plays that form the canon of work for youth in our country. YPT continues to develop new work and create partnerships with theatre companies across the country and around the world. But that’s not all. The enriched learning experiences of YPT’s Education & Participation Department provide young people with opportunities to develop their whole being. Through our workshops in community shelters and agencies, educational initiatives in Toronto classrooms, Drama School programs in four locations throughout the City, and training and apprenticeship opportunities, we place learning at the centre of everything we do. At YPT we strive for a positive and lasting impact on the emotional, social, and intellectual development of young people – giving them the chance to grow into the unique and wonderful people they were born to be.
