STORM THE STAGE 2019 Postponed Until Saturday June 15th! “Things won are done; joy’s soul lies in the doing.” These pictures are from Storm the Stage 2018 - proving that many hands make light work! We truly couldn't do this without all our amazing volunteers! Good thing we said all that "weather permitting" stuff, cause Mother Nature has taken over and has other plans for our stage for tomorrow. And we aren't about to argue with such a powerful lady. So, without further ado, let us announce: STORM THE STAGE 2.0 Raising The Sails Saturday June 15th (Weather permitting)
If raising the sails speaks to the swashbuckler in you and you would like to join us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know so we know how much coffee to put on!
ps. Please BTOT (Bring thine owne tooles!)

Social Justice Shakespeare #socialjusticeShakespeare
Danielle Irvine and Paul Wilson's Arts Smarts program is a huge success in Hr.Grace!
From Paul Wilson:"Some Social Justice Shakespeare with Leo Mackey and his awesome students at St. Francis. Danielle Irvine had the idea to take our projects in this direction years ago and Leo was the first teacher to come on board with us. Thanks always to #ArtsNL for the #ArtsSmarts grant to allow us to do these fantastic projects!"
From Danielle: "Year Two of #socialjusticeShakespeare is underway at St Francis in Harbour Grace! Moving conversation and performance with brave students! Thank you #ArtsSmarts and #ArtsNL!!! Changing how we think, one monologue at a time. " Congratulations to our very own Paul and Danielle!

"The intimate and beautiful open-air theatre in historic Cupids provides the perfect place to explore the special connection we, as Newfoundlanders and Labradorians, have through our language and culture that will enrich the text and experience of Shakespeare's plays"
- Danielle Irvine, Artistic Director
But soft! What light through yonder window breaks? It is CBC Newfoundland and Labrador's Colette Kennedy of course! Colette spoke with William Shakespeare (a.k.a Paul Wilson) for Here and Now at our theatre, located in Historic Cupids right behind Cupid's Haven B&B and Restaurant on Friday, June 29th. Skip to 33:49 if you'd like to hear Shakespeare's take on gluten, our Summer Season, and more! Also, please STAY TUNED for an update on our sails and how you can help!
