Salt Spring Island, BC V8K
Grandmothers to Grandmothers and the United Church present readings interspersed with seasonal music, harp, flute, piano and voice, and this year, a Klezmer band. With refreshments at intermission it’s a perfect way for you and your guests to get into the spirit, or to take an entertaining break from holiday preparations. Bookending the performances are Dylan Thomas’ A Child’s Christmas in Wales and it’s parody A Child’s Christmas in Scarborough, respectively brought to life by the inimitable Clark Saunders and Arthur Black. Ann Stewart and Lynda Jensen bring other poignant and humorous dramatic readings, and Joi Freed-Garrod joins the cast with a Chanukah special. Salt Spring Grandmothers to Grandmothers is one of 250 groups across Canada who have raised $25M to assist African grandmothers, who support their AIDS orphaned grandchildren, and their communities. Proceeds go to the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s Grandmothers Campaign.
