Award-winning costume designer Sheila White (Mary Poppins), hosted the first of our weekend workshops, and was wonderfully assisted by Connie Hosie (Mary Poppins). The Hat Making Workshop was “practically perfect,” and you can see the fun and merriment in the photos below.
“I had a great time, met some lovely people and made a fabulous hat! I look forward to participating again”
“Thanks so much for the fantastic hat-making workshop, and congratulations on a truly excellent piece of audience engagement. How wonderful to share the great expertise in your team with your community. Our theatre company… will be taking more advantage of these. Congratulations on an excellent program that I know was loved by all the participants”
Upcoming workshops with Sheila White include Costume Design Process and Costume Design Illustration. For more information on our weekend workshops and how to register, visit our website or email: email@example.com.

Last night at the Granville Island Stage, theatregoers were taken on a trip to the North Pole at our final Opening Night performance of 2013. Nicola Cavendish’s homegrown classic, It’s Snowing on Saltspring, had everyone looking forward to the holidays. The Christmas joy trickled out of the theatre and the festive spirit continued after the show as we celebrated with the cast and crew. There was no shortage of laughter in the room with some of the funniest actors around in attendance! Seasons greetings to all and have a happy New Year!

How fitting that we end the calendar year with the opening of the Arts Club holiday classic It’s Snowing on Saltspring. One question is on everyone’s mind: Will it take a reindeer-guided trip to the North Pole for disenchanted Bill Bannister to rediscover the spirit of Christmas?
See below for interview clips with Director Lois Anderson and stars Andrew McNee and Deborah Williams and the trailer of Nicola Cavendish‘s homegrown Christmas tale. Happy opening to the cast and crew of It’s Snowing on Saltspring, and happy holidays to all!
