St-Sau­veur se­crets

The Glengarry News - - News -

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.

See the­atre­cer­cle­gas­con.ca for dates, times and ticket in­for­ma­tion.

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