Tour de force show for Soropotimist

It will be hosted Feb. 24 by Soroptimist International of Courtenay at the Filberg Centre in Courtenay.

Generation of Women is a one-woman tour de force that introduces five generations of remarkable women who share their personal experiences working in various communities on Vancouver Island.

Each of these women tells her story with warmth, humour and insight, highlighting their courage and determination to make a better life for their families and laying the foundation that continues to connect women of the past, present and future.

Written and performed by Kymme Patrick, Generation of Women has a split billing with Old Time Radio show by TheatreWorks Entertainers at Women’s Day 2013.

It will be hosted Feb. 24 by Soroptimist International of Courtenay at the Filberg Centre in Courtenay.

Tickets, which include a hot buffet lunch, silent auction, the two shows and much more, are on sale. Tables of eight can also be purchased.
