Public Service Announcement

Thorneloe University, on the campus of Laurentian University, will host a special event on Thursday, March 10, 2011 at 6 pm at the Thorneloe Theatre. The theatre will be renamed in honour of a prominent Sudbury citizen and artist who has dedicated a lifetime to education.

Following the renaming ceremony, at 7 pm, the curtain will rise on Michel Tremblay’s “Les Belles Soeurs,” a joint production by the Thorneloe Theatre Department and Cambrian College’s Technical Theatre Program. The play, being directed by Professor Patricia Tedford and presented in English, will run from March 10 to 12 and March 17 to 19, 2011.

“Les Belles Soeurs”, one of the most iconic and beloved Canadian plays ever produced, is an honest and hilarious look at the lives of 15 women whose life crises resemble those of the fractured country in which they live. It is a story about their hopes, jealousy, insecurities, and their love of bingo.

Tickets for the performance are $15 or $10 for students/seniors and may be purchased in advance at The Black Cat or at the door.

Everyone in the community is invited to attend the theatre renaming ceremony at Thorneloe University followed by the play.
