LEST WE FORGET – LUNCHBOX THEATRE – Begins October 24th, 2016

Music and history come together to celebrate our National pride!

In November, Lunchbox Theatre continues their tradition of celebrating the efforts of our veterans and military personnel with a new creation entitled Lest We Forget. Using music and song to journey from WWI to the present day, this show examines the lives of soldiers, their families, and the way our lives are changed by war. Featuring original songs from a multitude of Canadian composers, Lest We Forget will be a musical ride through time that honours all that makes us proud to be Canadian.

Showtimes vary, see website for details.
