Gita and Chris Ashley from Growing in the Arts join me to speak about their latest production of Vimy continuing at The Registry Theatre this weekend Sat Nov 10 at 2 pm and 7 pm, and Sunday Nov 11 at 2 pm and 7 pm. Sunday’s performances with have a commemorative presentation to observe Remembrance Day.
“I want audiences to be “entertained” That is, I want them to laugh and cry and think. In this case, I hope they come out thinking about how we remember, what we remember, and WHY.”
– Vern Theissen.
