A huge mountain lies between the village and the rest of the world. One day, Mr. Foolish decides to move that mountain and commits his entire family to the task. But generations later, the mountain is still here! As his descendants throw down their shovels, they ask themselves… Is there another way to overcome this challenge? Why did we need to move the mountain in the first place?

Since its debut in , the WeeFestival of Arts and Culture for Early Years has presented 35 productions and as many events, workshops, and concerts. Four of these works were original commissions which toured beyond the festival and five productions featured in the Weefestival have been nominated for Dora Mavor Moore Awards. The WeeFestival has experienced continued growth in audiences, presenting partners and community collaborators from across the arts sector excited to support the festival mission. After its leap to annual programming in , the WeeFestival is busy preparing its exciting international edition. The Festival brings productions from around the world and across the country that delight, stimulate, and inspire the youngest of theatregoers between the ages of 0 to 6 years. Performances in this international festival transcend and blend the disciplines of music, theatre, dance, installation, and puppetry — all designed with the early developmental stages of childhood in mind and with events and activities for the whole family! Catharines will educate and entertain children and their families through music, storytelling, and puppetry. The WeeFestival continues its commitment to professional development for artists, educators, and programmers through its conference activity scheduled for May and to the creation of new Canadian work for very young audiences with creation residencies supporting three new works and the artists behind them. Announcement of selected projects takes place in the new year. Over the coming months the WeeFestival will put the final touches on a vibrant programme of free events including concerts, exhibitions, demonstrations, and workshops for children and families to be announced in March
