Insight Theatre delivers sexual health education through drama and song. Every year, PPO trains a new troupe to be sex educators and provides a drama coach -- the show is written by and for high school students.
Here's a taste of the 2015-16 show:
- Birth control methods compete to win the Pregnancy Prevention Pageant of 2015- The Little Mermaid questions her sexual orientation through song- Private STeye investigates the case of the Gonorrhea Gangster- Little Red Riding Hood explores her pregnancy options in the Forest of Knowledge

What is Insight Theatre?
Insight Theatre is a unique non-profit, public education theatre program created by, for and about youth. For 34 years, Insight has harnessed the talent, energy and creativity of Ottawa youth and used it to empower others to make healthy and informed choices.
What information is covered?
Our trained and talented youth create their performance by following the Ontario Ministry of Education Health and Physical Education Curriculum.
The show is approximately 60 minutes in length and comprises a series of scenes that employ humour and drama to address the variety of pressures and choices facing youth today.
• Healthy relationships
• Healthy decision-making
• Unintended pregnancy options
• Body image
• Sexually transmitted infections
• GLBTTQ issues
Why is Insight Theatre a valuable resource?
Insight Theatre does not attempt to replace the essential health education provided in schools; rather, our goal is to assist school health educators by offering a fun entry point into more in-depth discussions about health and healthy sexuality. Insight Theatre is designed as a supplementary program, presenting vital health information in a stimulating and entertaining way, made all the more accessible because it comes from the students themselves.
How much does it cost to bring Insight Theatre into my school?
We charge a nominal fee of $150 per show.
