'Miracle' bringing laughs toWestman

Westman audiences will get a fun dose of professional comedy when the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre brings “Miracle on South Division Street” to stages throughout the region this month.

The hilarious comedy tells the story of the Nowaks, whose barbershop was visited once by the Virgin Mary. The legend of this event has been kept alive for years, but now some new information has changed their understanding of the event and hence their view of themselves.

The Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre has taken a production on the road every year for decades. A show is chosen and tours throughout Manitoba and northwestern Ontario.

RMTC is one of Canada’s best professional regional theatres and produces 10 shows in Winnipeg each season. This year’s touring production, “Miracle on South Division Street,” was one of its mainstage Winnipeg shows last season and was well-received by audiences.

The tour kicks off in Deloraine on Thursday night as part of the town’s Southwest Showcase series. It then moves on to Souris on Friday night, and Brandon on Saturday night.

7 Ages Productions is the Brandon group bringing the show to the Western Manitoba Centennial Auditorium on Saturday starting at 8 p.m.

“RMTC offered us the show,” said 7 Ages’ George Buri. “We pay them a fee and then rent the facility, do some advertising, and help out with setting up.”

The show is entirely professional, from the actors to the sets, stage managers and technicians. Because of healthy sponsorships from Manitoba Lotteries, Manitoba Hydro, and other corporate groups, the show can be offered to audiences for a fraction of what they would pay in Winnipeg.

“This play is very light and funny — just what we need to help us through the winter,” Buri said.

It also makes a perfect complementary activity during the week of the Lieutenant Governor’s Winter Festival. An evening of theatre and then a tour of the pavilions is ideal.

Tickets are available at the WMCA box office or online at wmca.ca.

Other Westman locations and dates for the play include:

• Feb. 3 — MacGregor.

• Feb. 6 — Neepawa.

• Feb. 7 — Minnedosa

• Feb. 8 — Binscarth.

• Feb. 10 — Strathclair.

• March 2 — Virden.
