Gros Morne Theatre Festival, Newfoundland and Labrador


Man:
We’ve done well from the trade, and I’ve built my company
up from next to nothing. And there are those
who, for those reasons, would seek to do me down. Woman:
We know people come
to Newfoundland for the natural vacation spot. So what better way, we thought,
to extend that vacation than to provide theatre based on our local
history and culture? ( ♪♪♪ ) Man:
The mandate of the
Gros Morne Theatre Festival is to tell a story: our story, the Newfoundland story. And those stories can come
from anywhere in the world, as long as they speak
to the people of Cow Head. Gaylene Buckle:
The community is constantly
sharing with our company, our company is sharing
with the community, and that’s where a lot
of our ideas come from. So please sit back, relax,
and enjoy the show. Audiences coming through
Cow Head are often surprised. They get quite taken aback when they come into our
little warehouse theatre and there’s a professional
theatre company here
to tell our story. ♪ We’ll rant and we’ll roar
like true… ♪ Gaylene Buckle:
Gros Morne National Park
has so much to offer. You can spend your days
hiking up mountains, kayaking down the water, and then go to our
late night show. Every evening in Cow Head you can see two shows
in one night. I can’t think of a better way to spend a day of vacation
anywhere really. You made me do it, sir!
You made me do it! Come and see the
Newfoundland culture by young Newfoundland artists and I think it’ll be
an experience you’ll
just never forget. (Applause)
