Spring is on its way! We are thrilled to be collaborating with L’Unithéâtre on the new world premiere of Bello by Governor General Award winning playwright Vern Thiessen. This innovative new bilingual production is currently touring in English and French for twelve and a half weeks until the first two weeks of May. The tour is booking up fast, so don’t delay to be in touch with our Booking Coordinator Patrick Beagan at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Huge thanks to everyone who came out to our gloriously oversold reading of Dave Clarke’s opera for children Songs My Mother Never Sung Me. This innovative new project, sung and performed in ASL, was part of the first Deaf theatre festival in Canada: the Sound Off Festival February 16, 2017 at 7:30 pm. It was an amazingly moving experience for everyone involved!
Coming up fast is our Sprouts New Play Festival for Kids! This year the festival will be held on June 3 and 4 at the Westbury Theatre at the Transalta Arts Barns as part of the Arts at the Barns Series, and will feature three brand new short scripts, including one by Sound Off Festival’s Executive Director and Deaf actor Chris Dodd!
Stay warm and we’ll see you at the theatre!
