The Love List

Lennox Community Theatre, 2219 County Road 11, Selby

Don't miss community theatre at its finest in Selby when The Love List takes to the stage.

"In this side-splitting and thought-provoking new comedy, Leon and Bill concoct a list of attributes of the ideal woman - the top ten best qualities in a mate. When this allegedly 'Ideal Woman' actually arrives on the scene the men quickly learn that their list could use a few revisions. Be careful what you wish for - especially in choosing a mate. This old adage leads to hilarious results in Foster's sparkling new comic hit." (From samuelfrench.com) By arrangement with Samuel French.

Norm Foster's comedy 'The Love List' is directed by Rachel King. For ticket information and showtimes, please visit www.LennoxTheatre.ca.

2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge. You're invited to a talk/visual presentation at the L&A County Museum & Archives in Napanee on April 18th.

It put Allied troops in control of the strategic Vimy heights for good. For the first time, it sent the most powerful army in Europe into full retreat. It also firmly established the four Canadian Infantry Divisions as the most effective fighting force on the Western Front.

Admission is $3. 'Tuesday Night at the Museum' is a monthly feature at the L&A County Museum & Archives. For more information about a wide array of programming happening at the L&A County Museum & Archives, please call please visit www.CountyMuseum.ca or call 613-354-3027.
