Cantley 1889 gratefully accepted the proposal by Theatre Wakefield to perform their original musical play "A Bridge to the Past" in Cantley and helped with its promotion here. La Grange de la Gatineau generously offered its venue for the production.
The Cantley audience gave "A Bridge to the Past" rave reviews. The performance was lively and fun; the music and acting were exceptional. The seven stories brought to life bygone events, people and places of our region. Theatre is a wonderful way to tell about our heritage in an entertaining and meaningful way. It easily captures the minds and emotions of all generations, giving an appreciation and understanding of our past.
This production instilled a sense of identity and pride for our Gatineau River Valley.
We congratulate Theatre Wakefield for this initiative and for contributing to our community socially, culturally and for our common heritage. We look forward to helping with its future projects.
