Event Notes


The Collective Creation Project presents SWIMMING FOR LIFE

The Collective Creation Project is an annual cooperative effort with Magnus Theatre and local high school students. With the guidance of professional theatre staff, students from across the city come together to write a play on a social issue affecting Thunder Bay. Students are involved in all aspects of the creation of the play, from writing to acting and production. This year the students have written a play called SWIMMING FOR LIFE, which is about healthy waterways and eco systems in the Great Lakes!

Two siblings' lives are changed when they accidentally fall through the ice on Lake Superior and become fish. Can they become human again or are they stuck in their new form forever? They quickly learn that underwater life is not as carefree as they had imagined it to be. What’s worse, they discover that humans have a bad reputation in the underwater realm by most creatures. Along their journey they encounter water pollution, unfriendly fish, invasive species and the power of open-mindedness.
