This month we are featuring a number of great stage performances such as, Jake’s Gift, She Loves Me, The Importance of Being Ernest and the Peace Quest Speaker Series.

Jake’s Gift 
A Journey to Juno Beach 
Written and Performed by Julia Mackey

While revisiting the shores of Juno beach for the 60th Anniversary of the D-Day landings, World War II veteran Jake encounters Isabelle, a precocious 10-year-old from the local village. Her inquisitive nature and charm challenge the old soldier to make peace with his past.

A multi-award winning tour-de-force, Jake’s Gift uses the legacy of remembrance to make personal the story behind one soldier’s memories.

She Loves Me
A Musical Romantic Comedy 
Book by Joe Masteroff, Music by Jerry Bock, Lyrics by Sheldon Harnick

Set in a bustling 1930s parfumerie, coworkers Georg and Amalia are constantly bumping heads. Both escape the stresses of their lives by secretly writing passionate letters full of longing to anonymous pen pals- completely unaware they are actually writing to each other! When Georg discovers who his “Dear Friend” has been from the start, he finds himself re-evaluating their relationship; was it love in disguise all along?

Based on the same story as the hit films “You’ve Got Mail” and “Little Shop Around the Corner”, this witty and warm-hearted Tony Award-winning romantic comedy is full of show-stopping tunes- a perfect musical gem!


The Importance of Being Earnest 
A Sparkling Classic Comedy 
By Oscar Wilde

Wealthy playboys Jack and Algernon have been leading double lives to escape from the humdrum of polite society. But when they both begin to use the same alias “Ernest” to woo different women, hilarious chaos erupts! Complete with a flurry of mistaken identities, witty banter and cucumber sandwiches, this scintillating comedy will have you laughing out loud!

Friday, July 11th, 9pm

Normandy has its cemeteries and monuments in remembrance of soldiers and civilians that died on their soil. All Canadian cities have their own monuments.

Over the past decade, Barbara Brough and Dave Ingram from Trinity College School have led 400+ grade 10 students to the battlefields and cemeteries of Europe.
