Edmonton' Shadow Theatre is celebrating 30 Years with their new 2023-2024 Season. Under the stewardship of Artistic Director John Hudson, the company has produced over 110 shows over the past three decades. 

At Nellie McClung Charter School for Girls, four girls join the science club to build a robot for an international student robot-building competition. They face power struggles, negotiate interpersonal relationships, and learn how to build a robot; all while facing the biggest hurdle of them all – how to survive being a teenage girl. “Our new season is reflection of everything we've worked to become these past 30 years,” says John Hudson. "Our new world premiere play continues our tradition of presenting new Canadian works, the second one this season. This is either a new funny drama or new serious comedy. Come and see and decide for yourself."

Robot Girls stars Abigail McDougall, Hayley Moorehouse, Jayce McKenzie, Larissah Lashley. Directed by Shadow Theatre's Artistic Director John Hudson; Co- Director Lana Hughes; Set and Costume Designer Trevor Schmidt; Lighting Designer Even Gilgchrist; Sound Designer Nichole Man; Production Manager Tiana McLean; Stage Manager Elizabeth Allison.
