A missing link theatre company presents Billy Bishop Goes To War February
25th - March 8th, 2014, presented in the beautifully intimate McManus Studio Theatre
at The Grand.
Stratford and Shaw Festivals' Kyle Blair is featured as Billy Bishop (as well as
17 other characters) and Londoner Dean Harrison joins us as The Piano Player.
"This truly Canadian play is about Canada's greatest flying ace and introduces audiences
to the life of this lively and inspiring Canadian hero. Part musical, part comedy
and part drama. The actor playing WWI fighter pilot William Avery Bishop also introduces
us to 17 other characters. From humble beginnings in Owen Sound to the fame and
glory of being this country's "top-scoring pilot" of the First World War, this show
is not to be missed!" It is important to note that this production is of particular
importance as 2014 marks the 100th Anniversary of the beginning of WWI.
We've assembled an exceptional creative team. The show is stage managed by Leanne
Rich, setting by Eric Bunnell, costumes by Julie McGill, lighting by Anthony Gentile,
props by Bernadette Sperandeo-Gall, projections by Jenelle Carter and directed by
