At this time, SpringWorks will not be distancing patron pods. Masks and proof of vaccination will be required for indoor programming only. SpringWorks will continue to monitor government and Public Health guidelines and implement any necessary changes to ensure the safety of all involved.


This venue is an outdoor venue, which means that masks are not required as long as you are socially distanced. Please bring a mask if it makes you and your pod feel more comfortable! PuppetWorks will follow suit with any changes made by the province in the future.

Theatres des Petites Ames

Created in 2007, Le Théâtre des Petites Âmes (Small Souls) was born from a desire to offer small scale puppet, object and mask theatre productions. Stories and dreams come to life in a small scale theatre format where reality and imagination coalesce. Micro-universes are created before small audiences to provide an intimate contact with the spectator. Our productions are available in English, French and Spanish. Our first mandate is to offer theatre for small children. This no worry formula is tailored to young children between the ages of two and five. The Théâtre des Petites Âmes will also offer productions for adult audiences to cater to the child within. Quality productions for children between the ages of two and five are few and far between. The small children chapter of our company aims to meet this demand. At this age the child is at a stage in his development where imagination is boundless. With stories, images and music we nurture this secret world where anything is possible.

Over the course of six years she worked with Le Théâtre de L’Oeil on La Félicité/Dear Fizzy, Un secret de Polichinelle and Le Jardin de Babel, touring across Canada and the USA. She was recently seen performing in Woânda from the Théâtre à l’Envers. As an actress, she has travelled around Quebec with the Théâtre Parminou.

Her voice work can be heard on the radio and on screen as a female voice in several movies and shows including translations of Once upon a time in Mexico, The Descent and After the Sunset.
