Everyone here at Watermark Theatre sends our best wishes to all of those who have been affected by hurricane Fiona. It will take time to clean up, to repair the damage, in some cases repair lives, and for all of us to recover from the shock of it all. The resilience of Islanders, and seeing neighbours helping each other out, has already been inspirational, and we know this will continue in the weeks and months to come.
Our production of Beneath Springhill: The Maurice Ruddick Story was to begin performances on Wednesday. Like almost everyone on the Island, we do not have power and will not be able to go ahead as planned. Without knowing when power will be restored, when roads will be cleared, and when life will return back to a semblance of normalcy, we have decided to postpone the production to later this Fall.
The new dates of Beneath Springhill will be announced very soon. We are really looking forward to presenting this wonderful play about the “singing miner” who survived a disaster of his own with resilience, compassion, and through the power of music helped his fellow miners survive.
For those who had tickets booked, we will be contacting you in the next week or two about rebooking for another date. If you are unavailable at that time you may save the credit for a later production, get a refund, or we will forward the cost of your ticket as a donation to the Red Cross’s Hurricane Fiona in Canada Appeal.
If you have any questions please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org call 902-963-3963
We realize that not everyone has power at the moment so please help us in passing the message along so that ticket holders are aware of these changes.
My best wishes to you and yours.
