Community Theatre Festival: La chasse galerie

Ecole Francois Buote

Every year, ACT (a community theatre) co-ordinates the PEI Community Theatre Festival, held in March near or on World Theatre Day. As an active ACT member, for the third year in a row I was asked to photograph the 2016  event. This is the second of several Thursday Theatre postings.

The local French school, Ecole Francois-Buote. put on a classic French-Canadian legend about a group of lumberjacks who go to see loved ones on Christmas Eve. The devil intervenes.

Between ensuring my camera settings were working in the stage lighting (it was the first play) and the speed at which some of the children spoke I completely missed the storyline. But at the end the lumberjacks all got up and paddled their canoe back home!

    Love local theatre events and especially the opportunities they offer to youngsters to get involved. I’ve spent many hours backstage over the years minding my children and many others in between scenes, and helping with costume changes and so on. Such fun. Great photos here – very nice.

      Thanks for the comment. It takes a lot of volunteers to pull off good community theatre, so kudos to you for pitching in. I mostly work pre-stage as a producer or props person, and occasionally crew but this was in my newish role as show photographer!
