This play honours the 100th Anniversary of Armistice and is suitable for audiences aged 12 years and up.
A play with a heart as big as the prairie skies! MARY'S WEDDING (by Stephen Massicott) is an epic, unforgettable story of love, hope, and survival.
On the eve of her wedding day, Mary dreams of Charlie, her first love. Set in Western Canada during the First World War, Mary and Charlie find one another in a barn during a thunderstorm and a tentative love is born. This is a wonderful tender story of innocent first love and the vicissitudes of fate.
2014-2018 marks the Centenary of the Great War, the 100th Anniversary of Armistice (November 11, 2018) and the Battle of Morieul Wood. MARY'S WEDDING honours these historic events, how they shaped the lives of Canadians at that time, and the lives lost in battle.
Doors open at 6:00pm.

Christine Fellows finds music in sounds we tend to take for granted: the voices of the people we love, the sounds of the spaces we move through as part of our daily lives. Alternately delicate and rousing, her songs shed light on characters that tend to be overlooked and isolated, those whose struggles and triumphs are difficult to quantify. Many of her characters are women, an intentional focus that Christine has continued through 7 solo albums that highlight the vivid interior lives of pigeon-fanciers, shut-ins, runaways, and solitary travellers in wintery northlands.
Fellows is based in Winnipeg, Canada, where she collaborates with artists from all disciplines to create and produce performance works and recordings.
In November 2018, she’ll release her 7th solo album, Roses on the Vine (Vivat Virtute).

If there’s one constant in life, it’s this: nothing stays the same. Change is inevitable, for better or for worse—it’s the sinister shadow lurking behind the sunniest day, the silver lining that offsets every cloud. That mutability is something with which the members of Dear Rouge are intimately familiar. Since putting out their debut EP in 2012, Drew and Danielle McTaggart have been on a somewhat breathtaking upward trajectory. That independent release led to another one, and the accolades began to flood in: a B.C.–based radio award, songwriting prizes, a sweet record deal, charting singles, and a 2016 Juno for Breakthrough Group of the Year followed in short order.

É.T.É was born from the meeting of three young musicians from classical, jazz and traditional Quebec backgrounds. This new musical formation proposes a repertoire of traditional tunes from here and elsewhere as well as original compositions with a young, unique and varied sound mixing violin, cello, bouzouki, voice, podorythmie and jig. Winner at the 2017 Grand Prix Desjardins de la Cultures de Lanaudière in the Emergence category, the group also won the Audience Award at Cabaret Festif! of the 2018 Relève in Baie-Saint-Paul.
