Insight Theatre delivers sexual health education through drama and song. Every year, PPO trains a new troupe in theatre and sexual health to be peer educators -- our show is written by and for high school students. Our community show is a chance to celebrate the end of our 34th season, and the amazing contributions that our youth have made to their community over the last year. There will be refreshments, a selfie station, a chance to try on or order one of our youth-designed t-shirts, and more!
Our Spring 2016 show features skits like:
- Mission Possible: Quest for the Test- Well-loved Disney characters singing about their sexual orientations and gender identity- Private STEye investigating the case of the Serial Bacterial Infectors- Little Red Riding Hood getting info about her pregnancy options from the Big Bad(?) Wolf and Dear Old Granny
We hope to see you there!

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.
