Real life mother and daughter star in puppet show about Alzheimer’s

Little Onion Puppet Co. is proud to present Dorothy: a mother  daughter memoir project for a limited run in Kamloops, Mar 8-10th.

From November ‘95 to January ‘96, sisters Susan and Nancy took care of their mother Dorothy, who was in the later stages of Alzheimer’s disease. Unable to speak frankly about the disease
in front of their mother, they kept a journal, meticulously  documenting every day. Now, 20 years later, Susan and her daughter Randi are using the very same journal as inspiration for a new

WCT Presents: Glory

Produced in association with Alberta Theatre Projects, Calgary

In 1933, four friends set out to prove to Canada that hockey isn’t just a sport for men. But with the Great Depression weighing heavily on the nation and political tensions rising in Europe, can they overcome the odds, and people’s expectations, to forge their own path to glory? Told through music and dance inspired by the jazz age, GLORY is an thrilling hockey story that proves a woman’s place is on home ice.
