From Ruthven to Passchendaele Saturday, November 5
From Ruthven to Passchendaele
Dundurn National Historic Site, in the Castle, the Coach House

610 York Boulevard,
Hamilton, ON

Hosted by the Hamilton Military Museum
Join Studio Babette for a unique experience as we honour the memory of those who served Canada in the Canadian Expeditionary Force, with this true story, poignant yet delightful, of one family's inspiring courage. Thirteen new table-top, rod puppets, on a multi-functional stage, recreate scenes that range from the meadows of Ruthven, to the degradation of No-Man's-Land, to the antiseptic solace of the hospitals in London. Please plan to see this site-specific historical production that celebrates the continuing heritage of Brock's Rangers.
Date: Sat, November 5, 2016
Times: 2 shows TBA
