Laughter Fills the Avalon!
What better way to shake off the winter blahs, than to spend your evening laughing! And so it was on Thursday, February 11, 2016, when the Souris District Arts Council brought the Manitoba Theatre Centre's rural touring production to the Avalon Theatre. A full house greeted the actors who were presenting "The Hound of the Baskervilles", a Sherlock Holmes mystery set in the moors of Scotland. While the original storyline ran through the play, the three actors playing 17 roles put a total comedic twist to the production. What a great evening of laughter it was!
The Arts Council is very grateful to have such willing community volunteers, who spent many hours unloading and reloading all the props. The MTC company were very pleased to have "real" dressing rooms backstage, thanks to grants from the Souris Glenwood Foundation and the Brandon Area Foundation. Thank you to the Avalon Theatre for making this dream a reality.
