Dear <<First Name>> <<Last Name>>, 

Our 33rd annual Vision Celebration Gala was a resounding success! Members of the Montreal Black community and fans of Black Theatre Workshop attended in large numbers and with great style to celebrate the four honorees, while enjoying a champagne cocktail, four-course meal and a beautiful traditional Haitian dance performance by Mapou Ginen. Thank you to our hosts Elysia Bryan-Baynes and AngeLo Cadet for guiding us through the evening and to DJ Don Smooth for the tunes that brought everyone to the dance floor. (Rumor has it there was an impromptu dance-off, but you had to be there to see it!)

A final congratulations to those who were presented awards: Fabienne Colas (Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Achievement Award), Nancy Oliver-MacKenzie, (Dr. Clarence Bayne Community Service Award), Jared Warden-Joseph (Victor Phillips Award) and Dayane Ntibarikure (Gloria Mitchell-Aleong Award). 

So many beautiful people were present and good times were had by all! Our thanks to everyone who came out in support of Black Theatre Workshop! We are already looking forward to next year's Gala, but first, we hope to see you at our two productions during Black History Month: Scotian Journey and How Black Mothers Say I Love You.

In Rehearsal: How Black Mothers Say I Love You

Rehearsals are underway for our upcoming production of How Black Mothers Say I Love You. After successful productions in Toronto and Ottawa, we are thrilled to bring Trey Anthony's beautiful play to a Montreal audience for the first time! With a cast and creative team made up of almost exclusively women of colour, this is one production you don’t want to miss!

This year we are presenting the world premiere of Scotian Journey by Anne-Marie Woods, with performances at 33 schools reaching an audience of approximately 6000 students! Using storytelling, song and spoken word, Scotian Journey reveals history and stories about Nova Scotia that are still relevant today, but still not yet in the history books.
