The so-called “Beaubears Island Players” have really done it this time. The informal community theatre troupe, assembled by the Friends of Beaubears Island, has, since 2014, brought history to life on the stage, but they’ve never done anything quite like this. In their pursuit to help raise funds to extend the employment of area students interpreting the past on Beaubears Island, they plan to present not one, but five stories, in one fun-filled performance. Tall and True is a five-part theatrical production charting the course of 6 Beaubears Island vessels, and what became of them after leaving Miramichi. The performance will hit the stage at the Beaverbrook Kin Centre from April 26-28, starting at 7pm.Read More
