Feb 7, 2012. Major Barbara was a resounding success!
Winnipeg Mennonite Theatre thanks all the volunteers, the cast and, of course, the wonderful audience that made each of the five shows a success.
Several months of rehearsals, tens of pages committed to memory, a great deal of time dedicated to selecting costumes and building sets, and the result - a beautifully done play, the quality of which is comparable to that done by professionals. It was great joy seeing the audience so immersed into the play - catching and laughing at witty comments and debating anew the timeless questions posed by George Bernard Shaw.
Now, here's what some local newspapers had to say about their experience of seeing Major Barbara:
