CJSF volunteer, Sarah Hyde, reviews Mr. Fox at the Vancouver International Fringe Festival, a play about that ubiquitous Vancouver radio mascot...
Under no circumstances must you ever take off the head – those instructions will make you a really bad guillotine operator or a really great mascot.
Mr. Fox is a one man play and it is full of the dos and do nots like this.

He wants to be a radio jock and thinks being the Fox is his foot in the door.

CJSF volunter, Kelsey Singbeil, reviews the 2008 Bard on the Beach performance of Twelfth Night...
Sometimes when I go to Bard on the Beach I feel like I'm part of a commercial for summertime fun in Vancouver.

Commercial or not, it's a fun way to spend a summer evening.

She’s got a bone in her teeth, and Leaky Heaven is ready to gnaw at it. As a newbie to Leaky Heaven performances, I wasn’t sure what to expect walking into Strathcona’s Russian Hall on a Thursday evening. But, as Bone in her teeth came to life on stage, I was happy that I had no expectations or preconceived notions about the troupe or performance.
