Review by Danny Gaisin
Part of UTM’s Theatre Arts Faculty’s curriculum is for the undergraduates to produce all the aspects of a theatre’s creative experience. Thus, they will as experienced thespians, appreciate what the writers, composers, and producers must accomplish. “THE PLACES WE ARE” tells; in vignette format what ‘HOME‘ and ‘LOVE‘ mean. Incorporating monologues; music; songs and dance – the themes of hope and optimism are all portrayed. Inclusion of the First Nations tribal names from each of the student’s own Provinces, towns and neighborhoods remind the audience of our real Canadian historical experience.
The nineteen member cast have opted to employ their own backgrounds and diverse locales as an introduction.
