When we look at Charlie Brown, we laugh, but it is a laugh of recognition. We recognize ourselves in these characters. We see these things in ourselves, and people we know.

    Award winning set designer, Jennifer Goodman, was offered a great challenge with creating the environment for You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown.

More sold-out shows: Swift Current and North Battleford Quite a lot has happened since I wrote last. After Moose Jaw we traveled to Swift Current to perform at the Living Sky Casino. It was a bit of a different set-up there, as it was presented as a dinner and then the show. After that we had a much needed break over the Labour Day weekend, and reunited on September 3 to travel to North Battleford from Regina and perform the show that very same night. Our “Patsy”, Devra Straker, has this...

  Moose Jaw? Excellent! Our Tuesday night show at the Mae Wilson Theatre was another sell-out, and we enjoyed every minute with our fantastic audience. It was our first show on the road after our two weeks in Saskatoon. It presented some technical challenges, being in a new space with some different equipment, but the team is excellent at trouble shooting and the show looked and sounded just beautiful. Some elements of the show are unchanging but most require a fair amount of re-doing...

Bryce Kulak says attendees don’t need to know anything about 2 Pianos 4 Hands in advance to appreciate the show, on at Regina’s Globe Theatre. “You can come to the show cold and that’s actually my favourite way to see theatre, is to not know much at all about the production. That’s a great way to see the show,” said Kulak, who along with Reza Jacobs, stars in the special event production on the Globe main stage this month. Read More...
