Dates of existence


Boîte à Popicos was founded in 1978 by Suzette Lagacé-Aubin and sponsored by Canadian Parents for French (Alberta Chapter). At the time, it was Alberta's only French theatre for young audiences. Based in Edmonton, Alberta, Boîte à Popicos hoped to make the French language a living subject both in and outside the classroom. The productions were designed especially for students learning French as a second language and toured many schools in Edmonton and throughout Alberta and Western Canada. Boîte à Popicos' founding members included Suzette Lagacé-Aubin, Roger Busque and Gilles Denis. Boîte à Popicos was incorporated in Alberta as a non-profit private association on August 17, 1979 and was later registered as a company under the <em>Federal Charities Act</em>. In 1992, Boîte à Popicos amalgamated with le Théâtre français d'Edmonton to form l'Unithéâtre.
