The Leader & District Arts Council would like to extend an invitation to teachers, parents, students and community members to the play Love Bomb.
Love Bomb is an engaging 65-minute play that confronts the sex trafficking of Canadian youth and is suitable for Grade 9 – 12 audiences. RCMP estimate that over 90% of the victims of sex trafficking are procured within Canada.
This is happening in our world today and sometimes living in rural Saskatchewan we feel we are safe from this type of thing. We think that puts our youth more at risk.
The Leader & District Arts Council has booked LOVE BOMB as a community show instead of a school show, by doing this we can open it up to students and their parents in the surrounding communities.
The productions is on November 1, 2018 at 7:30 pm in the Leader Community Centre (402 1st Avenue West).
We are partnering with groups & organizations in both Leader and the surrounding communities to share the cost of presenting this production free of charge to attendees.
This fall OSAC (the Organization of Saskatchewan Arts Councils) is touring the production Love Bomb as part of their School Touring Program. Each year, Saskatchewan students, many of whom live in rural areas, enjoy music, dance, drumming, mime, theatre, magic, storytelling, and circus arts performances.
Each fall and spring, professional performing artists from Saskatchewan, Canada and beyond, are selected to tour for their artistic excellence and special ability to interact with and relate to student audiences. Study guides, with suggestions for pre- and post-concert discussion and activities, are sent to schools before each tour.
The original musical, Love Bomb written by Meghan Gardiner (Dissolve) with music by Steve Charles, is a 65 minute play that confronts the sex trafficking industry in Canada. This production earned two 2016 Ovation Awards for “Outstanding Production” and “Outstanding Lead Actress” and was nominated for a Jessie Richardson award for best musical. The play unfolds like a Rock Mystery as the character of Justine is forced to play her songs for a private guest since they are clues in a missing person’s case. Based on research and stories we have collected over the past 3 years, shameless hussy’s two female performers dissect this topic in a personal, dramatic, relevant and engaging way.
“Loved the show! Besides being great entertainment it had an amazing story and we talked about it all the way home and many times since. Fantastic.” – Barb Wolfe, Surrey Arts Centre – Arts Programmer
