Synopsis: Anna returns to the small town church she grew up attending for its annual Easter production after a ten year absence. When she meets Joshua after the performance, her view of the cross as a tired, old symbol is challenged not only by his invitation to imagine it differently, but her need for it to be something more.
The World Premiere of That Towering Cross took place in Red Deer, Alberta from March 26 – 28.
Commissioned and presented by The Central Alberta Pregnancy Care Centre, the Easter Premiere Musical Production was directed by Annette Bradley & Laura Geelen and helped to raise more than $85,000 for charity for CAPCC’s special housing project accepted.

She Has a Name is a polished, well-acted production of a play with an urgent message about human trafficking.
If you truly love theater, you must see this play. And I promise you, it is a play you will carry with you long after the lights have gone up.
Bravely, She Has A Name isn’t a simple-minded empowerment document, First World to the rescue. It builds suspense. Will Number 18 be newly victimized by activists as their prize witness, a sacrificial lamb to the larger campaign to build a case against human traffickers? Let’s just say, that’s when social-action theatre takes the longer view.
