One Small Step – May 2024

‘Waiting for Guffman’ meets ‘High School Musical’ – a hilarious backstage comedy from Dora-nominated writers Anika Johnson and Barbara Johnston.

When their annual musical is cancelled, a group of high school drama students decide to write one of their own – but to get the money they need from City Hall, it must be about something Canadian. The result? 'The Hadfield Follies: An Out of this World Journey Through the Life and Times of Astronaut Chris Hadfield’. On their way to opening night, this ambitious group of misfits learn about teamwork, tenacity, and the surprising parallels between high school drama and space exploration.
