I'm really looking forward to seeing "Schoolhouse" by Leana Broodie. I'll be there signing books too. For every book sold at any of their shows, I'm going to donate $5 to Lakeside Players. As a long-time member of Kanata Theatre, I firmly believe that community theatre needs to be supported, so come on out!
On Saturday, April 21st I had the opportunity to meet many women at the Provincial AGM of Delta Kappa Gamma, an honorary society of women educators. I am president of the Canadian Federation of University Women in Kanata and lead a group called the "Guitar Groovers". We were the entertainment for their conference. Many of these women had been students and/or teachers in one-room schoolhouses. Adele Muldoon was in attendance and her story is on pages 53 & 54 of my book.
Next week, The Lakeside Players are performing "Schoolhouse" by Leanna Brodie. It is being directed by Don Fex and co-directed by Cathy Dosett. Schoolhouse will be presented from May 3rd - May 6th, 2012 at Ron Kolbus Lakeside Centre.
Schoolhouse explores timeless themes of rejection, of compassion, of damage, of hope. Full of warmth and poignant humour, Schoolhouse evokes a way of life shared by generations of North Americans. It explores the themes of rejection, compassion, damage and hope. The play takes place in and around a one room rural schoolhouse in 1938.
