Community Theater Project by Flying Arrow Productions
Flying Arrow Productions are a professional non-profit theater company in Revelstoke, BC. In February 2017 they performed a Community Theater Project at the Revelstoke Railway Museum, proudly supported by Canada 150 and the BC Arts Council, called "Welcome Home?".
Anita Hallewas, Flying Arrow's Director, explained the project; 'Welcome Home? began as a spark after reading a survey in the Revelstoke Review that stated 51% of locals did not want a newly sponsored Syrian family to come to Revelstoke. It is true that this statistic is not scientific, and we cannot be sure how many people even participated in the survey.'
It was well received in the local community, and a video of one of the performances is available below.
