This week we go behind the prison walls, take a new look at the Pied Piper legend, and celebrate Good Friday with the Vancouver Chamber Choir.
[dropcap]1[/dropcap]Vancouver actor and theatre maker Patrick Keating presents his new autobiographical work, Inside/Out (Apr 1-12). Patrick reveals stories from the prison yard, a plane flight, and a run-in with clowns, that have all been part of his journey in, out, and through the revolving doors of the Canadian Criminal Justice System.
[dropcap]2[/dropcap]Axis Theatre Company and Lord Byng Secondary School join forces for a fundraiser to support both organizations with live performances from both the cast of Hamelin: A New Fable (Apr 2) and a special student performance from the Lord Byng Drama Students. Hamelin: A New Fable combines an original script with live music, masks and puppetry based on the legend of the The Pied Piper of Hamelin. The fundraiser will not only help Axis continue its work, but is an opportunity to show your support for the next generations of theatre professionals.

One of the landmark works of the 19th century, the Requiem is performed along with the touching Seven Last Words from the Cross by German composer Heinrich Schütz and the tragic story of Jephtha’s Daughter by his Italian counterpart Giacomo Carissimi. The concert features the Vancouver Chamber Choir, Pacifica Singers, Vancouver Youth Choir, Vancouver Chamber Orchestra and soloists.
