Telling Tales Out of School is both a celebration of public education and a fundraiser for People for Education. It is a night where we honour the promise of public education through song, stories, and dance – with performances by students from our publicly funded schools, intertwined with those of celebrated Canadian artists and performers. 

This year, the event will take place in the Streetcar Crowsnest Theatre, a brand new cultural hub in Toronto’s east end.

Over the years, Telling Tales has attracted many of Toronto’s political, community, and business leaders as audience members, as well as an amazing roster of Canadian authors, actors and musicians. Don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy a great show and support the important work we do to ensure a bright future for Canada’s young people.
