Proud Returns To Firehall Arts Centre April 7 – 25

18 Mar

ProudFirehallArtsCentreProud makes a return to the Firehall Arts Centre on April 7th.  If you missed it last year, you missed one wickedly entertaining show. Proud is a play written by Michael Healey about the Right Honourable Stephen Harper. The Prime Minister is played by Andrew Wheeler who provides an amazing performance of the man himself. It really is quite something to see. But the rest of the cast shines as well including his Chief of Staff and his new sassy MP Jisbella Lyth played by Emmelia Gordon. You will be drawn in from the very first line. The show is hilarious, sexy and witty. No matter what your politics, there is something to entertain everyone here.  Proud starts at the Firehall Arts Centre, 280 East Cordova Street, on April 7th and runs till April 25th.  Tickets start at $22.

Proud On Now At Firehall Arts Centre Until April 26th

Proud is a play written by Michael Healey about the Right Honourable Stephen Harper.   Honestly, who knew Stephen Harper could be so funny! Certainly not I. To me and many others the man is somewhat devoid of personality. Yes he’s a numbers man and many that deal with numbers, can be a bit dry. OK I know this is a generalization. But a play about Stephen Harper, I must say I was intrigued.  Not my favourite person for many personal reasons, but maybe someone who has helped keep the boat afloat during recent economic turbulence.  The play is about the man himself, his right hand man and Chief of Staff, Cary and his new MP Jisbella Lyth.  You will be drawn in from the very first line. The show is hilarious, sexy, witty and foul mouthed at times.  No matter what your politics, there is something from everyone here. Jisbella played by Emmelia Gordon does an amazing job as the new MP and Andrew Wheeler plays an impeccable Stephen Harper. If there is a morale to this story, it would be vote!

Proud is now at the Firehall Arts Centre, 280 East Cordova Street, until April 26th Tuesday – Saturday 4:00 pm & 8:00 pm shows and Sunday shows at 2:00 pm. Tickets range from $15 – $30. There is also a 1:00 pm Pay What You Can Matinee on Wednesdays. If you wish to laugh out loud and be wickedly entertained, see Proud.
