The inner life of a young boy is at the heart of this moving and meaningful opera by composer Neil Weisensel and spoken-word artist Shane Koyczan. Bravely autobiographical, beautifully poetic, visually innovative and musically memorable, Stickboy confronts the uncomfortable reality of a society struggling with its own fear and insecurity, a society that seeks conformity and uniformity at the expense of those who are different. Now you can play a part in bringing the innovative and meaningful adaptation of the opera Stickboy to schools throughout BC! Your contribution will directly finance part of the costs associated with adapting Stickboy from the theatre stage to the classroom. Become part of the legacy of bringing to the classroom, this new, made-in-Canada opera that deals with one of the toughest topics facing youth today: bullying.
