Bard on the Beach - Much Ado About Nothing

Motown Meltdown at the Commodore

Jun 10, 2004

By Catherine Barr


Bard on the Beach, Vancouver's fabulous Shakespearean festival, is now in its' 15th season. Opening night took place last week with the premiere of "Much Ado About Nothing" and continues next week with "Merry Wives of Windsor" and "Macbeth". Don't miss these plays which continue all summer long at Vanier Park.

Also last week, the Shooting Stars Foundation's "Motown Meltdown" fundraiser was held at the Commodore. Featuring too many musicians to mention, and sponsored in part by the Westender, the bands rocked the room in support of AIDS organizations.

Due to server capacity, you will not be able to access or click through to the larger photographs. With over 250,000 unique visits each month, our site would quickly exceed the amount of memory needed.

If you would like to receive a copy of a photograph, then please send an email and enclose the details of the event, the date, the name, the photo number and the names of the people in the photograph. Also, for security reasons, I prefer not to email copies of pictures to anyone other than the people who are actually in the photo. Thanks.
