    With music by Welsh composer Mervyn Burtch and lyrics by Mark Morris, Wizard Things takes the audience to a small, orderly town turned on its head by an influx of children. A wizard descends upon the unsuspecting adults, bringing with him three successive plagues of children: the Demanding Children, the Nice Children, and finally the Brats. In seeking a home, the children challenge the adults to embrace the complexity and chaotic nature of youth.

    Community members can email earlbuxton@epsb.ca or call the school office (780-435-1577) to arrange for tickets. Currently registered Earl Buxton families may purchase tickets through SchoolZone.
