Join us at The Folk Exchange – 211 Bannatyne for an evening of music and theatre as well as the return of the TPM Photo Booth!
As you enter the lobby, you can sing along with your old holiday favorites and later on, learn a few new classics from our favorite choir, such as TPM’s current earworm – Ivan The Backwards Mule!
What else? Our Curtain Raisers will be a series of scenes from Carole Frechette’s Helen’s Necklace and Elisa’s Skin, translated by John Murrell and directed by TPM’s Artistic Director, Ardith Boxall. The players are a mash of up- and -comers from the University of Winnipeg and some of Winnipeg’s finest professional thespians. On stage you’ll see Alicia Johnson, Kevin Gabel, Justin Otto, Jessina Cheffins and Rob McLaughlin!
There will also be a scene from our U of M student reps Thomas Toles & Kevin Ramberran…that’s all we’ll reveal…it’s a mystery made just for you!
And about that Photo Booth…it is going to be so much better than any mall can offer this season. Why? Because your photo will be an improv featuring you along with several of the evening’s performers…wowza! We’ll provide holiday props and bring the creative spark, and you will receive the digital file, so you can send it as a card, print it for your album, or post it on Facebook…or all of the above!
Doors open at 6:30PM – see you there!
