Reignite the wonder and imagination that is theatre at the Mini Festival of the Arts

The Ottawa Children’s Festival (OCF) is thrilled to be back this year for their return to in-person shows with its Mini Festival of the Arts. OCF has showcased award-winning theatre, music, and dance from all around the world for over 35 years.

Mini Festival of the Arts, taking place from November 19-21 at the Canadian War Museum (1 Vimy Place), will be a safe, in-person celebration that observes all provincial COVID safety guidelines.

Presented at the festival will be four pieces of exciting and thought-provoking theatre to engage audiences of all ages:

  • Jam Side Up – presented by the identical Kif-Kif Sisters, a blend of comedy and audience interaction. Prepare to have your sides splitting with laughter watching these zany acrobats, who have been captivating audiences for over a decade.
  • 12 – presented by 100 Watt Productions, a voice from our youth speaks about climate change and their confusion with the inaction of our leaders. This unique performance is built on writings, conversations, and interviews by teens addressing the issues concerning the future of our planet.
  • Crossing the Ocean – presented by Youtheatre, a multimedia theatre piece exploring one man’s magical journey below the waves. A man dives into the unknown to reclaim the gone-overboard mysterious box gifted to him by his late father. Is he ready for what’s inside?
  • Thumbelina – presented by L’Illusion, a reimagined version of the Hans Christian Andersen classic through puppetry, dance, and music. This immersive and awe-inspiring performance brings Thumbelina’s quest for freedom to life. (Offered in English November 19-20 and French (Tommelise) November 21)
