A warm and sincere thank you to all the fans, friends, and family who came out to support live theatre at this year’s Saskatoon Fringe Festival. “The Generals Take Our Defence Minister Shopping” was an exciting, challenging, awe-inspiring, and immensely rewarding experience that I will never forget. I am so grateful to have worked with such a talented cast and crew who worked together to bring Michael Murphy’s intelligent, informative, and very funny script to stage for the first time! What a show!
