DAISY AMAZED ME
A Colourful Coming-Of-Age Story  
By Jason Hall

Performances Run April – July 
Young Company Touring Production

“If you don’t know our Daisy, that’s perfectly fair, she’s quiet and shy sometimes, you’d forget she’s there. But if you don’t know Daisy, you must know her Mom. She’s bright and colourful and endlessly fun!”

From the writer of ROSE’S CLOTHES and VIOLET’S THE PILOT comes DAISY AMAZED ME, the final story in Jason Hall’s trilogy of plays for young people. 

Daisy is an unlikely hero. A wallflower by nature, she has happily grown in the shadow of her bold, out-going Mom. But one day Mom starts losing her colour; with each passing moment she gets more and more drab. Confronted with the possibility that they might be separated, Daisy embarks on a quest to halt her mother’s decline. The audience must help Daisy complete a series of tasks before the last hint of colour drains from her Mom 

 

We are thrilled to offer public performances of Daisy Amazed Me at the following locations and times. Please check our website regularly for updates as all performances are subject to change.

June 10 – 2:30pm – Firehall Theatre
