REGIONAL TOUR

The 2020/21 season marks the 43rd consecutive Regional Tour. We are honoured to be able to bring professional theatre to rural communities across Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario. Each year in the dead of winter an intrepid group of performers and technicians travel about 6,000km to perform in 24 communities over four weeks.

Many thanks to the community partners across the region and all the volunteers who make the tour possible! And a special thanks to all our sponsors and funders for making great theatre possible.

This season, Royal MTC and Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries are
proud to present:

 

PADRE X
Written and Performed By Marc Moir
February 9 – March 14, 2021

Synopsis

A story of bravery and beauty, this Fringe hit by Winnipeg writer Marc Moir brings to life the journey of John Weir Foote. As the only Canadian chaplain to win the Victoria Cross during the Second World War, Foote’s heroism shines as he chooses to stay behind with his unit during the Dieppe raid. Padre X has received awards from Fringe Festivals across Canada including Best of Fest and Outstanding Drama. Critics have called it "a pure triumph" and "a beautiful performance".
