That’s it, our show is done, the curtain is down, the dressing room is clean and we are saying goodbye to a truly beautiful story.  We have all had sch a truly rich and fulfilling experience and would like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who came out and shared the story with us!

Until next time…

Getting the word out

January 18, 2012 Leave a comment

We’ve just finished our first Tuesday show.  It’s tough to get people out mid-week, let alone in a freezing rain/snow/sleet storm!

Now we’re at the stage in the production when the reviews come out, and a big thanks to Pat Donnelly for coming out to the West Island for our Gala evening last Saturday, and for the wonderful review she gave us in today’s Montreal Gazette.  We want to share this story with as many people as possible and good reviews make all the difference to a small theatre company.

You can read Pat’s review here!

Help us spread the word, and we’ll see you at the theatre!

One week down and two to go!

Well, we’ve done it!  We’re up and running, and we’ve made it through our first week!  The Gala was a huge success and a lovely evening all-around!  We were thrilled to host Maxine and Doris at the Gala, two of the Veterans we met with at the Hudson Legion a few weeks back.  Food, wine, dancing and a studio theatre filled with incredibly supportive friends and theatre patrons, what more could we ask for!

Today is a day off, then we start back up tomorrow!

Hope to see you at the show!

And we’re off!

Two nights under our belt, and tonight is our Gala Fundraiser! A huge thank you to all the brave souls who took on the weather for the last two nights, to support us in our opening week!

Cue to Cue

We’re on set, about to start our first tech run.  We finished cue to cue in a record 2 hours!  For those who don’t know what a cue to cue is, it’s a stop and go run through of the show, going through every sound and lighting cue in the show.

We’ve got a dream team working behind the scenes, they are the real un-sung heroes of this show!  Peter Vatsis (set and lighting designer) and his team have built the most beautiful set, Joyce Zogos has taken care of our props, Isabel Faia has created the soundscape for the show and Melanie Michaud and Kimiko Hache are busy making us look great, and Anne-Marie Pierre is brilliant as our Stage Manager!  A big shout out and thank you to all of you who have been putting hours and hours in to making everything look so incredible!
