Théâtre du Nouvel-Ontario is a francophone theatre production company. All of our productions are presented in French, however, some shows feature English Surtitles™ so that more people can experience French theatre! We apologize, but not all content on this site is available in English.


What’s it like having dyslexia, dysgraphia, dysorthographia, dyscalculia, dysplasia, attention deficit with or without hyperactivity? 
At times, it’s like being constantly followed by a little purple mammoth. 

Mamuche is a play that lets the audience peek into the mind of Grace, a young girl with several learning disabilities. Busy with their separation, Graces parents dont have the time or resources to help her blossom. Her reading and writing challenges isolate her from the other children in her village, as she learns differently from them. Its a good thing Grace has her best friend Mamuche, a stuffed purple mammoth, by her side on this great adventure! Armed with their vivid imaginations, the two friends set off in search of happiness amidst the magnificent landscapes of Northern Ontario. Mamuche has been designed in an eco-friendly way to be staged in all kinds of venues, from school gymnasiums and libraries to small theatres.

Road construction is underway on Elgin and Larch streets. If you’re in a wheelchair, you may need help to roll the gravel. To avoid the curb barrier, we suggest you arrive via Elgin/Medina streets rather than Larch Street to access the main entrance. Thank you for your understanding.
