Another story now, about community groups coming together for the common good.

This time, it’s the Iroquois Falls Arts Council teaming up with Access Transit and South Centennial Manor Redevelopment to host a dinner theatre later this month.

Arts Council chair Fran Coté says it’s the first big fundraiser for her organization.

“This is Take Two Theatre in Timmins who have never taken a show on the road before,” she relates. “ So it’s a first time for them, as well.”

Coté notes that Iroquois Falls doesn’t have its own theatre group – yet.

“That is also part of our mandate – our mandate being the Iroquois Falls Arts Council, is encouraging new groups to start.  So we’re hoping that we’ll have people wanting to form a theatre group in Iroquois Falls.”

“Darkness in the Night” will be presented at the Iroquois Falls Community Centre on Saturday, October 19th.

Coté says “Darkness in the Night” is perfect for mid-October… and quotes director Mike Cartan.

“The cast enjoys working together and they have lots of fun at rehearsals.  I believe you will be gripped by their energy, as the story unfolds through their trip to the underworld and back.”
