Back on Stage - in Nova Scotia!

Two shows coming up, at St Margaret of Scotland in Halifax (Nov 13) and Christ Church, Dartmouth (Nov 14).  Both shows at 7:30 and these will be the last chance to see Roots Among the Rocks in Canada.

We will also be facilitating workshops and plenary sessions at the Diocesan Youth Conference in the Diocese of Nova Scotia/PEI.  Participants in that event will see scenes, monologues and excerpts from the show and engage with various themes and ideas that the show explores.  They will also be part of a youtube rap video, which we think is pretty cool.

Not 'Church Drama'

Here is the most frank feedback received to date on our show.  This was spoken by a 4th year university student, after our show in Vancouver:

"So awesome.  You know, honestly, I had low expectations.  I've seen a lot of church drama.  And most of the time, church drama really blows, you know?  But this was so powerful.  I bet a lot of people are surprised when they see it.   There's so much in it.  It's really, really good."

That's the gist of what he said.  I hesitated to put this on the blog, given that I was not sure if I could get away with putting into print the quote "Church drama really blows, you know?"

So, maybe that's a word to the wider church, or youth ministry, that when we do 'church drama' we need to make it good.

HOW did I miss THIS???

The company at...

THE BIG GOOSE - in Wawa, Ontario.

I mean, really, how could we have left out evidence of such milestones on the tour ! ? ?

Look What We Saw!

This happens only occasionally on the BC Ferries, and we were really excited that we were right there on deck when this mum and her kids showed up off the port side!  Especially cool for Magdalena, who has never been to BC or the Pacific Ocean before!

So, now we're on Vancouver Island for:
   Sunday morning (excerpts) at St Dunstan's church - 10:00 am
   Sunday evening at St Mary the Virgin, Oak Bay, 7:00 pm
   Monday evening at Camp Columbia on Thetis Island, 6:30 pm 
         (so folks from the mainland can catch the last ferry at 9:15)
   Tuesday evening at St Mary's Church, Nanoose Bay, 7:00 pm

Personal Pylons

Our own pylon?

    ooooooohh, stardom!

Remember this sign from Signal Hill in St John's ??

The one that says "Vancouver 5,031 km" ?

we made it.


Lunch at a Japanese restaurant with the Dean of New Westminster AND the Diocesan Youth Coordinator...
....seeing downtown and the waterfront...
       ...technical runthrough...
....  and a fantastic show in an amazing space at Christ Church Cathedral in downtown Vancouver - over 100 people in the audience, and an engaging 'talk back' with them afterwards
