“I believe that this piece of theatre brings together the best type of oral history research (local content) and the humour and music that defines our island. More broadly, the themes of love and inclusion are explored with such gentleness and such tenderness….”

“Great presentation of the life the Daly family. Inspiring people who lived and loved through their adversity.”

“Friends, go see this lovely work. It’s bursting with beauty. It will do your heart good.”

Well gang, this show was so touching and fascinating. My eyes were wet the whole time. ❤ Congratulations to Diana, Louise, Lori, Anne, and everyone involved. Get your tickets, friends!”

Audience Feedback:

“Live Magazine for Youngsters, a great little event that I took my kids last night at the LSPU Hall. The talents made my kids smile all night and empowered them. It was nice to see an alternative band, a puppet show, and improv all in one night. I was interested, and not once they asked to go home early. Let’s see more of this! loved every minute of it! i think it was the combination, and it was almost an alternative to what is normally seen around here for kids. it was like we didn’t just come for one themed performance. it was diverse. hooray!!!! i want more!”

“Wow! what a great time we had @Live Magazine! For Youngsters! Volume 2 Issue 5. It was wonderful to see some campers from last year! Haley and Darcy’s new band ‘Nerve Damage’ were awesome! We also caught up with some members from Swagway – happy to hear Elizabeth is still playing bass and Kaleigh got up on stage to participate with ‘Shorts’ for some improv.  Rock on!”

“The RCA has done such a great job with these events. They listened to my ideas, let me curate the show, and just gave the artists so much support. It’s hard to find paying gigs in this city (let alone in this economy) and to be able to tell a group of artists that they are all being paid fairly was such a great feeling. Hosting this show was honestly one of my favourite things I’ve ever done. I laughed and smiled more on that Monday than on any other Monday. I know that this month’s curator is going to knock it out of the park. Jason Wells is such a special person! Please go and support the show!”

“Keep these events up! I’m sad to have missed this one but your new programming is really connecting a diverse group of artists and arts fans. Nice work!”
