image003THE CALL WENT OUT remembers the early years of World War I

With generous funding from the Department of Canadian Heritage through the World War Commemorations Community Fund, and in partnership with the Royal BC Museum, Victoria’s Story Theatre Company is touring The Call Went Out throughout British Columbia during the month of November.

This theatre piece is based on letters from BC soldiers sent to loved ones at the beginning of World War 1 and uses slides and music from the period to portray their reflections on the early years of the war.  The 30 minute performance is followed by a talk back and sharing of some archival material from the Royal BC Museum.

Written and directed by Jim Leard, the creative team includes Avery Brennan (Musical Director), Sadie Fox (Costume ad Props Design), and David MacPherson (Producer) and features Kirsti Hack, Jeff Leard, and Ingrid Moore.

Story Theatre will perform The Call Went Out on November 14th, 2pm, at the Cumberland United Church. This family friendly performance is by donation. No reservation required. For further information visit, or call the Cumberland Museum and Archives at 250 336 2445.
