Stratford, ON


Free, and accepts optional pay-what-you-may donations for admission.

Offered in English.


In advance of the Lantern Parade, Playmakers! Theatre School will be organising a number of community-based workshops so that children, adults, families and friends will have the opportunity to make their own lanterns to carry in the lantern procession.


* Workshops are open to all - but children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.

* Feel free to arrive at any time, but please allow at least 2 hours to complete your lantern and let it dry.

* Lantern materials will be provided on a Pay-What-You-Can basis. A recommended donation of $10 per lantern is appreciated!

* Lantern accessories (LED lights and carry-poles) and kits will be available for a small donation at most workshops.

* All lanterns must be taken away at the close of each workshop. There is no place to store lanterns - not even overnight.
