BOLD Rocks Canada!
BOLD Muskoka and BOLD Hamilton both rocked Ontario, Canada only days apart this Spring, selling out performances and raising over $10,000 for their beneficiaries...Friends of Muskoka Midwives, the Ghislaine Francoeur Fund, the Kendall Pearson Resource Fund and the Women's Centre of Hamilton.
BOLD Muskoka shares:
"What were the highlights? Our Vanessa’s interpretation of “butt pain-writhing like a snake” (she was
amazing!); the end of Natalie’s birth story (I watched as faces went from joy when she felt her baby’s
hair to horror when she got cut); MONTY PYTHON!!! (that scene got lots of applause once it was done);
the way we interpreted Sandy’s birth (picture a football coach-come OB with a southern accent
instructing Sandy to “open yer legs wiiiiider”—hilarious yet so sad); and my personal favourite: seeing a
FULL HOUSE give a standing ovation (weeping included) to a group of amateur actors."
BOLD Hamilton writes:
"One of our amazing panel members (they all were!) was Dr. Phillips Shea who is a family doctor who delivered babies in homes for most of his career and he was able to bring his wife and two family friends (who were both patients of him and he delivered their babies at home). They were all blown away by the characters and how the play has this ability to really let you feel what women are going through when dealing with childbirth in North America."
