On May 22nd, the Crestwell Study Centre hosted an original revue show containing several forms of theatre all rolled into a one-night only performance at Little Flower Academy! There were over 120 people in attendance and the proceeds from the event benefit bursaries for the Crestwell Leadership Camp: IGNITE 2015.
Synopsis: Angela is an indifferent young woman who moves to Vancouver to study at UBC and is intent on being completely alone. That is until she receives a package from her grandmother full of books that sends her on a wild journey into "book world" with the help of Mark, the bookmark.
On the journey she encounters Greek philosophers, Peter Pan & Tinkerbell, Glenda the Good Witch & Wicked Witch of the West, Poetic Masters as well as The little Prince and the Fox. With the help of her "new friends" Angela slowly begins to learn some important lessons on the meaning and beauty of friendship.
From February 6-9, I went, along with either other girls, to a Study Weekend, in White Rock. There, we participated in many exciting activities. Including watching the [CBC] series “Emma”, listening to well-written talks about procrastination and filming videos for our upcoming revue show. On Saturday and Sunday night, we volunteered at an organization called, Night Shift. At Night Shift we gave supplies to people in need, while talking and encouraging them. All of us that went to the Study Weekend, will go home with lots of enjoyable memories that we will never forget.

With the group divided into their specific teams, they were able to conquer this major endeavour as they explored the true meaning of BEAUTY!
