Sparks Street Ballad: A Canadian Tale of Thomas D’Arcy McGee

Cynthia Sugars

From the producers of Gatineau River Reel and A Fiddlers’ History of Canada! History comes alive when Thomas D’Arcy McGee moves into Mrs. Trotter’s boarding house on Sparks Street. There to help forge a vision of Confederation, McGee is horrified to learn that his new lodgings are home to a boisterous group of young fiddlers who meet for their weekly practices. As he learns to appreciate their music and energy, the children offer McGee an important lesson about the real meaning of community. Blending history and fiction, music and drama, this play will have your toes tapping and heart singing.
