As we begin to prepare for the holiday season we should first take the time to remember the brave Canadian servicemen and servicewomen who lost their lives defending their country in the many wars and conflicts over the last century.
In addition to traditional Remembrance Day services being held across the city, we suggest taking in a performance of Letters in Wartime at the Alberta Aviation Museum (11410 Kingsway Ave.). This production is set amongst the conflicts of World War II, and details two different experiences while exploring the global ramifications of war. This play has won the “Best of Fest” award at three national fringe theatre festivals, and has been regarded by audiences as a provocative, insightful play. Nightly performances are from November 8 – 18 at 7:30 pm. Veterns receive free admission; Students/Seniors $12; General Admission $17. Tickets can be purchased online, by calling 780-504-7372, or at the door. Act fast, the tickets for the November 11 performance are selling quickly!
The Alberta Aviation Museum is also hosting a traditional Remembrance Day Service on November 11; doors open at 10 am, guests should expect to arrive by 10:15 am.
