Swashbuckling in Old Montreal

In a mid-December celebration of Guiding and friendship, some 75 girls, Guiders and family members from Riverview District attended a Sunday afternoon performance of Geordie Productions’ Robin Hood. Geordie Productions is a Montreal-based children’s theatre that is known for the quality of its performances. Its description of playwright Paula Wing’s Robin Hood as a “tale set in Sherwood Forest where the most important things are honour, justice, adventure and hanging out with friends” made the play a perfect match with Guiding.

Girls from Sparks, Brownies, Guides, Pathfinders and Rangers were all in attendance. For many, it was their first trip to the Centaur Theatre in Old Montreal, where the play took place. Every girl I talked to thoroughly enjoyed the swashbuckling action on stage. And we were all delighted to be invited up onto the set after the performance for photos with actor Natasha O’Brian, who played the character Midge. The girls even got to see and touch one of the sword props used during the production.

In true Guiding fashion, we also made sure that the cast had a supply of chocolate mint cookies to munch on before their next performance.
