Mon­treal troupe tours to Wind­sor

Mer­maid Im­pe­rial Per­form­ing Arts Cen­tre will of­fer a spe­cial pre­sen­ta­tion of Jab­ber, from Ge­ordie Pro­duc­tions of Mon­treal, on Fri­day, March 3.

This per­for­mance was orig­i­nally sched­uled as one of MIPAC’S “School-time Se­ries” shows open only to school groups, but with the on­go­ing labour dis­pute mak­ing school field trips un­likely, Mer­maid wants to en­sure that this en­gag­ing and rel­e­vant play can still be pre­sented to lo­cal au­di­ences.

Jab­ber tells the story of a 16year old Egyp­tian girl whose par­ents trans­fer her to a new school when one morn­ing some graf­fiti say­ing, ‘All Mus­lims must die’ is found on the school wall. At her new school, she is the only per­son wear­ing a hi­jab. Through its use of hu­mour, its rel­e­vance and cre­ativ­ity, Jab­ber has en­gaged over 40,000 teens, teach­ers and par­ents across Canada.

The one-hour show is rec­om­mended for au­di­ences ages 12 and up. The per­for­mance also in­cludes a post-show talk back ses­sion with the ac­tors. Due to the late sched­ule change, there will be no advance tick­ets for this per­for­mance; all sales will be at the door. Ad­mis­sion is $10 per per­son, or $8 with food bank do­na­tion - cash or credit card (no debit) at the door only. For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact 902798-5841. Show­time will be at 7 p.m. Ad­mis­sion is $10 per per­son, or only $8 with food bank do­na­tion.
