On July 28th, Winnipeg was host to over 8000 athletes representing Police and Fire Fighters from around the world. Winnipeg Studio Theatre’s StudioWorks Academy was invited to participate in the amazing Opening Ceremonies event produced by Patrick Roberge Porductions (PRP). Our young performers literally rubbed shoulders with the athletes as they entered the Canada Life Centre, then performed a beautiful choral version of our National anthem followed by a stirring vocal tribute honouring fallen firefighters and members of the police force. I was truly a proud “musical theatre mama”!
