Presented by the Borelians Community Theatre

Mary cannot forget the years she spent teaching at a residential school in Nova Scotia. She was so young then and the world was such a different place. A decade has passed since the school was shuttered; however, the young teacher remains haunted by what she witnessed there. Teetering on the edge of reason, Mary’s path from faith to uncertainty plays out before her eyes. Feeling consumed by her memories, Mary does the only thing her fiery soul will allow her to do: confess. Written by one of Canada’s most celebrated playwrights, Sisters dramatizes the most significant issue facing Canadians today. Cathartic, evocative and forthright, this play will take audiences on an emotional journey that may never be forgotten.

Friday February 16th is also the show’s GALA PREMIER CELEBRATION. Before the show, starting at 7pm, there will be free wine; free desserts, and after the show you are invited to tour the stage and meet the cast and crew. This is a great opportunity to experience local theatre like never before!

Coming in June 2018… The Liverpool 4

THE LIVERPOOL 4

Performance: Saturday, June 9 – 8pm

Presented by Ultimate Artists Live

The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. With members John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, they became widely regarded as the foremost and most influential music band. In 1963 their enormous popularity first emerged as “Beatlemania”; as the group’s music grew in sophistication, led by primary songwriters Lennon and McCartney, the band were integral to pop music’s evolution into an art form and to the development of the counterculture of the 1960s.

The Beatles built their reputation playing clubs in Liverpool and Hamburg. Manager Brian Epstein molded them into a professional act, and producer George Martin guided and developed their recordings, greatly expanding the group’s popularity in the United Kingdom after their first hit, “Love Me Do”, in late 1962. They acquired the nickname “the Fab Four” as Beatlemania grew in Britain over the next year, and by early 1964 became international stars, leading the “British Invasion” of the United States pop market.

Join Ultimate Artists Live and Liverpool 4 as they revisit those iconic years of early rock ‘n’ roll.
