The glitter curtain has dropped on La Cage aux Folles - this year's Royal MTC/MBA Lawyers Play. Our dedicated cast of 24 Manitoba Bar Association members volunteered hundreds of (unbillable) hours to create this very special production. The sold out crowd was wowed by this hilarious and incredibly touching story of love and acceptance.
Many heartfelt thanks for the support of patrons, sponsors, program advertisers and donoros who helped create magic. Without the audience we are just a group of people in a room talking. You transformed us into storytellers and for that we are truly grateful!
