• There are just a few spots left on two upcoming winter excursions.
On March 9, delight in the magnificent sounds of the UBC Ensemble in this shortened version of opera (in a cabaret setting) at Opera Tea on the Stage.
On April 15, head to the Gateway Theatre to take in a production of The Grandkid.
This play highlights the changing relationships we have throughout the course of our life through a warm, comedic lens.
