Drama Class Going to the NAC


On April 13, 2017, Miss MacDonald’s Grade 10 drama class will be travelling to the National Arts Centre in Ottawa to see the play “Vigilante,” by Jonathan Christenson. This amazing opportunity is also available to students who took drama class last semester.

The play is based on a true story about the Donnelly family from southern Ontario in the late 1800’s. In this retelling, the Donnellys have come back to tell their side of the story about the unsolved massacre of their notorious family. This fantastic learning experience will provide students with the chance of seeing a play performed live and to see professional actors onstage in person.
