A Humorous Play and Fundraiser for a Good Cause

We would like to invite you to an exciting fundraiser at our church. Our son, Sandy Gibson, will be remounting his successful one man show “Portable # 3 - Not Just Another French Class.”, which he performed at the Ottawa Fringe Festival in June, 2014. All proceeds from the event will be used to assist various charities such as Harmony House - an organization that provides support for women and children survivors of domestic abuse. 

Sandy’s show is a humorous portrayal of the trials and tribulations of a first year teacher and is suitable for all ages. it is a family-rated show.

The show received a number of positive reviews from various critics, won ‘best of fest’ for his venue and was awarded critics’ pick - honorable mention.

See the link below for a couple of reviews of the show:

See the link below for a brief video trailer of the show where Sandy portrays one of the many characters that he features in the show:

The show will start at 7:30 PM on Saturday, November, 29, 2014. It is 50 minutes in length and will be followed by light refreshments in the church hall. Knox United Church is located at 25 Gibbard Ave., which is near the corner of Hunt Club and Greenbank. See the link below for the location.

We hope you can make the show!
