What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.
The Hawkesbury-based La Troupe de théâtre du Cercle Gascon is putting a different spin on that slogan with its most recent production.
“Ce qui se passe à St-Sauveur, reste à St-Sauveur” is a comedydrama written by local author Sylvie Léonard, who admits that writing a play had been of her “bucket list” since she retired from a career as an educator in early childhood, daycare and regular school programs.
Ms. Léonard is a fixture with the theatre group, having been involved as an actor, stage director and in various other roles over the last 15 years with the Frenchlanguage community theatre group.
The play features six actresses as six older cousins who meet for tea after attending a funeral. They then decide to rent a cottage for a weekend away in St-Sauveur, Québec. But as they get there, an unexpected event occurs. Obviously, this “event” remains a secret, because “Ce qui se passe à St-Sauveur, reste à St-Sauveur!”
There will be seven shows on three consecutive weekends in April and May at Le Centre Guindon, on Main Street, Hawkesbury.

This is the 71st production to be staged by the troupe which is celebrating its 35th anniversary.
