The Queen’s University Barefoot Players are a student theatre troupe for young audiences. They tour schools and parks with a family friendly show, give eduactional drama workshops, and run a summer theatre camp for ages 6-12. I had the privilege of working as a part of the company for both the 2014 and 2015 seasons. It was an amazing learning opportunity. All members of the company work as administrators to book shows and manage finances, as designers to build and conceptualize set, props, and costumes, and as performers.
