School Performances

Thank you Linamar

We’re committed to every child, every year.

Linamar for the Performing Arts is a program of River Run Centre for children in grades 1 through 8.

Now in its 17th season, this program is dedicated to building wisdom and understanding of life’s broadness and diversity through exposure to the performing arts. Twice each school year we invite over 15,000 children to River Run Centre to experience professional performances of music, dance and theatre. Thanks to the ongoing support of Linamar Corporation, Ontario Arts Council and the Department of Canadian Heritage, we are able to offer this program admission free so that every child has the opportunity to attend.
