Fall Production: Human, Like Me

Human Like Me

For this year’s fall production, Theatrix is teaming up with S.U.C.C.E.S.S., The Port Coquitlam Heritage Museum, and DiverseCity to create a meaningful play that addresses the issue of racism in Canada through an allegorical story. Cast members will create an all-new musical around Elizabeth Hoffletop, a human girl and her family who move to Obelopolis: The World’s Happiest Monster Metropolis. Can Elizabeth and her family find happiness in a society that wasn’t designed for humans like them?
