Vox Théâtre

For nearly 40 years, Vox Théâtre has been a vast playground for young audiences. Its shows tell theatrical stories in another way. Voices sing words and sounds to express ideas and emotions. The actors' game, the music, the sets, the puppets create a world of stories and characters that strike the imagination. Vox Théâtre has presented around the country and elsewhere nearly 50 creations for all ages from 18 months. The company presents an annual Enfance Jeunesse series in Ottawa at La Nouvelle Scène Gilles Desjardins, in collaboration with Théâtre de la Vieille 17 and Théâtre de la Catapulte.
