DISCOUNT TICKETS AT DOOR !!! Children's Hour (Toronto Centre for the Arts $24)

Join us for The Children's Hour, a riveting, 1934 masterpiece based on a true story about two women who run a school for girls. The play will be presented by Encore Entertainment at the Toronto Centre for the Performing Arts.

Our group will almost 20 per cent off the regular ticket price!

This show will be hosted by Merle Garbe, the show's producer and an enthusiastic member of Thumbs Up Theatre Toronto.


After a malicious youngster starts a rumour about the two women, the rumour soon turns to scandal.  The accusation proceeds to destroy the women's careers, relationships, and lives. The play was very controversial when originally performed, being banned in Boston, London, and Chicago, but widely praised in New York.  It was adapted as a movie in 1961, starring Audrey Hepburn and Shirley Maclaine. Written by American author / playwright Lillian Hellman. More information.
