Anvil Centre Theatre, 777 Columbia St, New Westminster
The Anvil Theatre is excited to bring back to the stage, Hey Viola!, a musical exploration of Canadian Civil Rights hero, Viola Desmond from March 16 – 27. Set in a cabaret style, this show could not be more relevant in this time of Civil Rights, Black Lives Matter, and Women’s Rights movements. In Hey Viola!, Vancouver songstress and performer Krystle Dos Santos, with the support of local musicians Chris Davis, Steve Charles and Jen Lewin brings the life of Viola Desmond to the stage using the dynamic and inspirational music that filled the home of this trailblazer of the civil rights movement. Using the musical format enriches the telling of her amazing and powerful story, ultimately an important Canadian story.
