Rosebud Theatre opens the 2023 season with Jake’s Gift, written and performed by Julia Mackey
Jake’s Gift is a surprisingly funny, multi-award-winning drama, that tells the story of a Canadian WW2 veteran’s reluctant return to Normandy, France, for the 60th anniversary of D-Day. While roaming the shores of Juno Beach, Jake encounters Isabelle, a precocious ten-year-old from the local village whose inquisitive nature and charm challenge the old soldier to confront some long-ignored ghosts – most notably, the wartime death of his eldest brother, Chester, a once promising young musician. At its heart, Jake’s Gift is about the legacy of remembrance and makes personal the story behind one soldier’s grave.
Jake’s Gift runs March 17th & 18th with performances at 1:30pm & 8:00pm each day.
Tickets are $90.00 and include a buffet meal at the Rosebud Mercantile. The buffet opens at 11:00am for matinees and 5:30pm for evenings.
