Like the Stars Above, SILENT SKY Sparkles with wit and wonder!

Last night, Walterdale Theatre kicked off their 61st Season with Silent Sky by Lauren Gunderson, and directed by Kim Mattice Wanat. (Full Disclosure: I am President of the Walterdale Theatre Board of Directors). It is a lovely show, with a charming ensemble who tell the story beautifully. There is a lot of humour, music, and above-all wonder at the universe and awe in those that pursue knowledge. It's the kind of wonder that brings tears to your eyes and indeed there were a number of audience members wiping away that evidence as the lights came up. It's also quite beautiful to see - indeed magical - thanks to the set and lighting by designer Beyata Hackborn.

It was a wonderful way to kick off the season!

Silent Sky runs to October 12 at Walterdale Theatre. Click here for tickets.
