Musical months ahead for me

I mentioned a while back that I’ll be part of the cast of Persephone Theatre‘s Christmas production of Beauty and the Beast in Saskatoon. I thought I was playing Monseiur Dark, but I received my contract today and I’m actually being signed on to play Maurice, Belle’s father. I’m pleased, to say the least, although …
