An event every day that begins at 8:00 pm, repeating until August 1, 2021
Festival Players is partnering with the Eddie Hotel & Farm to offer the Six Feet Festival during the summer of 2021 outdoors at the BMO Pavilion. “Beneath Springhill” is the incredible story of Maurice Ruddick, “the singing miner”, an African-Canadian who survived nine days underground during the historic Springhill mining disaster of 1958. This multi-award-winning one-man show from acclaimed actor and musician Beau Dixon, recalls the events during the disaster, the effect it had on the rural Canadian community, and the racial tension that grew from it. The play is a celebration of hope, courage and community. Ticket prices from $25 to $40 each.
