This Is How Our Story Began

Silly Stages, a theatrical producer, exists to present an annual pantomime production for families during the holiday season, and to present other family-friendly live shows throughout the year. The creators have, in the past, presented pantomime renditions of “Peter Pan” and “Aladdin” in Oshawa (directed by Joan Mansfield, written by Zac Mansfield, produced by James Mansfield). The Mansfields embarked on a theatre tour for their 2018 original panto of "Cinderella", entertaining over 2,000 kids and adults in Orillia, Belleville, and Oshawa throughout December 2018. Future pantos will also tour, and additional tour stops will be added as the company grows further.

Silly Stages also presents touring family shows, and a major family musical each July in Oshawa.

We aim to encourage children and young people to experience live theatre through our highly entertaining and interactive (and crazy) pantos! Kids cheer and boo their way through each performance (but only during the panto!)....and ALWAYS get to meet some of the characters in the lobby after the show (again, only at the panto!).
