Due to the ongoing B.C. teacher’s strike, summer school will likely be cancelled in most districts. Students may be rejoicing but parents are scrambling to keep their youth busy -- let alone engaged, learning, and getting some work-related experience.

How did you first get connected to The Only Animal?

Hello! Lois Dawson here! Having worked with The Only Animal in a few ways in the past (Stage Managing Stupid is as Stupid Does and running the first two years of the Onsite program to name a couple of ways), Kendra reached out to me last week and asked if I'd be interested in helping her open up the doors to The Only Animal's process on Nothing But Sky. Never one to pass up a new opportunity, I said yes.

Have you always yearned to see The Only Animal create a show from the beginning?  Here is your chance. Sign up now for The Drawing Board and join a select group invited into the rehearsal room for our upcoming show, Nothing But Sky, a living comic book bioplay about the artists who created Superman. From January 21 - February 21 get a weekly window into our rehearsal process including:  First Read-through, Design Experiments, Block and Polish, a glimpse into Tech and finally attend our Opening Night as our very special guest!

We are over the moon to announce that The Only Animal's Artistic Director Kendra Fanconi has been given the rights to adapt Paul Harding's Pulitzer Prize-winning and transcendentally beautiful novel "Tinkers."
