The Heritage Players are in full dress rehearsals for their latest production, Grammy Grace: A Mid-wife’s Tale set to take the stage March 21 at 6pm and March 22 at 4pm at the United Church Hall in Blackville.
Written by Valerie Sewart of White Rapids this play takes place in April 1949 as Grace Sturgeon prepares to deliver her daughter’s sixth child. With the doctor not likely to make it in time, the expectant father away in a woods camp, and five other children to take care of, Grace has her hands full.
This production will make you laugh, cry and remember a simpler time. Stewart captures the way life was like back then and audience members will enjoy mention of their neighbors, storekeepers and local landmarks.
Roast beef dinner with a variety of desserts will be catered by the 1st Blackville Pathfinders who are raising funds for their trip to Europe in 2010.
Seating is limited and both shows will likely sell out in advance. Tickets are $25 and are available by calling Lou Anne at (506)625-4336.
