The final production of the Spring 2013 Musical Theatre season is this week for the students from St. Clair’s Performing Arts program.

A uniquely Canadian musical with the scope and power of a Broadway classic, this production offers a special opportunity for students to showcase their versatility as performers, while telling an important tale from the past.

The show, based on the novel Pélagie-la-Charette by Acadian writer Anonine Maillet, illustrates a chapter from Canadian history that often remains untold, the forced relocation of the Acadian people and their eventually journey back to the land they loved. Pélagie tells the courageous story of one such family, and the obstacles they face on the road to home and freedom.

With its lush musical score and unforgettable, heartwarming story, Pélagie is the perfect choice to round out an incredibly diverse season of Musical Theatre from St. Clair’s one-of-a-kind Performing Arts program.

The production takes place in the Studio Theatre at the main campus located at 2000 Talbot Road West. It runs on April 24th, 25th, 26th & 27th all at 7:30pm.

Tickets for sale at the door in advance of each performance for cash Only.  Adults are $15 and students are $10.
