From Theatre Calgary’s website, promo for Pride and Prejudice
Our very own Laura Huckle is rocking the main stage at Theatre Calgary in the role of Lydia Bennet in Pride and Prejudice– which is SOLD OUT already in Calgary! We are super proud and excited for Laura and send much, much love! Laura will also get to work with our dear friend Jill Keiley at the National Arts Centre when the show makes it way to Ottawa! Tickets are still up for grabs at the NAC here!
Back in St. John’s, Hangashore Productions (created from Memorial University of Newfoundland’s “Producing the Play” course) are getting ready to stage The Laramie Project at the LSPU Hall. Directed by Danielle Irving, this show has an incredibly important story to tell, and is an amazing piece of theatre. We can’t wait to see it. They have a fundraising website here if you’d like to help. Learn more about Matthew Shepard, his story and the original creation of this piece of theatre here.
On a different note, there have also been some great, frantic and guerrilla-style film making happening here in St. John’s with the Nickel Independent Film Festival‘s 48-Hour Challenge! 48 hours to write, shoot and edit a 5 minute horror film. We are expecting some crazy shorts out of this!
November has proved itself to be an active month full of creations and challenges! Keep it comin!
