Freddie in the Neighbourhood follows a blue dog named Freddie, who is terribly shy and afraid to go outside. One day, when he accidentally finds himself lost in the big, scary forest near his house, he learns the skills he needs to overcome shyness. He finds that his neighbourhood is a welcoming place full of friendly and helpful faces… and new friends! The show was created with the help of Grade 3 students – it was these students that came up with the steps for overcoming shyness that Freddie uses in the play. The show also picked up two Jessie Awards earlier this year, including Outstanding Production in Theatre for Young Audiences category.
