The Flame New Westminster

By Erin Jeffery In Events November 21, 2017

There aren’t many things better than a great story told by an engaging storyteller.

Luckily, we’ve got a bunch of great storytellers, from right here in New Westminster, coming to share their stories as part of the first presentation of The Flame New Westminster.

Deborah Williams, award winning performer, co-creator of the international hit Mom’s the Word trilogy is bringing the popular Vancouver storytelling series The Flame to the Plaskett Gallery at the Massey Theatre.

These stories will be diverse and engaging, must be true and ‘happened to you’. Performers include New Westminster residents: Janice Bannister, Lisa Bunting, Laura Drummond, Colleen Winton, JJ Lee, Syd Bosel, Aidan Chafe, Devon More and musical guest: Jay Brazeau.

‘The impetus for the Flame New Westminster came from a desire from local professional performers to have an outlet in their own city,’ said co-presenter Laura Drummond, ‘Many of these actors, poets and singers have a successful career outside of New Westminster, but want to share their art in the city that they love.’

‘Massey Theatre is always happy to provide space to grassroots group of committed artists  to help enliven the arts scene in New Westminster’ said Jessica Schneider, Executive Director of the Massey Theatre Society, ‘We’re happy to be able to help ignite this series that will hopefully grow into something lasting that will showcase performers of all disciplines in New Westminster.’

The Flame Vancouver has been going for nine seasons has expanded to various locations as well as a Victoria.

Come be a part of The Flame New Westminster!

November 26, 7:00 pm at the Plaskett Gallery.
