Holy glamourama!

Spirits were high at the Revue Stage last night as we celebrated the opening night of Sister Judy. The congregation joined to congratulate this tremendous company on a moving production that was faithful to playwright Shawn Macdonald’s intentions. After the performance, friends and family broke bread and rejoiced with a glass of wine, as is the Arts Club habit.

Enjoy some photos of the opening night celebration below and view the complete album on our Facebook page. All photos by Megan Verhey

Sister Judy opens tonight!

Tonight is a very special occasion as we celebrate the official opening of Sister Judy, one of the Arts Club’s original Silver Commissions Projects. Sister Judy (Jenny Wasko-Paterson) deals with a possible crisis of faith when her beliefs are challenged by a new student (Lili Beaudoin) and her colleague, Father Frank (Mike Wasko).

Watch the show trailer below, as well as interviews with playwright Shawn Macdonald, director Patrick McDonald, and the cast of Sister Judy.

Happy opening to the company of Sister Judy. Have a fantastic run!
