Carousel Theatre presents Salmon Girl. A young girl makes some extraordinary friendships when she dives into a magical adventure where the delicate balance of nature could change her life forever. Theatre, dance, music and puppetry create a stunning experience that shares a First Nations perspective on the importance of salmon in the natural world.

Margie has never given much thought about the river or the living creatures within it until she falls into the water and becomes a salmon. But fins and a tail are not the only changes that Margie undergoes; when she makes friends with a young salmon and a couple of other lively characters, Margie begins to realize that the river is an important life-force for everyone. The young girl joins her new friends on an exciting journey that brings her closer to her Indigenous ancestors, the Salmon People, and the wisdom of old. This beautiful dance-drama encourages audiences to consider their own relationship to the world around them.
