ABC 21-120716

This week D gets the starring role at ABC Wednesday.

In Canada, there are many D places to visit – for example, Drumheller, Alberta, home of dinosaur bones and fossils.

The Dionne Quints made Canada (and themselves) famous in the 30s.

Dog sledding is still a form of transportation in the North and quite a sight to see.

But, I want to focus on Drayton Entertainment and the theatre built in Cambridge – Dunfield Theatre.

Alex Moustakas had a huge dream – live theatre in SW Ontario. In 1991, the first theatre was launched – Drayton Festival Theatre.  In 1997,  the second stage was added in St .Jacobs. – The Schoolhouse Theatre. Several more were soon added -King’s Wharf Theatre, Huron County Playhouse and St. Jacob’s Country.

Dunfield Theatre Cambridge is the newest theatre and opened in 2013. There is a 500 seat theatre – which makes each performance feel intimate and special.

We have been to almost every performance held there and are always amazed and delighted by the high quality of each production. The actors are extremely professional.

There have been such a range of productions – from comedy to musical to drama.

My favourite performance was Les Miserables – an extraordinary production that rivaled any held in bigger theatres.

We are so fortunate to have Dunfield – only a ten minute drive from our house. We sink into our seats and let the magic of theatre  enthrall us for several hours.

The dream of Alex Moustakas lives on, still under his direction.
