Setting record straight on 'summer theatre' - Dale Pepin

As the producer of Theatre Cambrian's upcoming production of Oklahoma (I wish) to express my consternation over a report in the May 3 edition of Northern Life.

As the producer of Theatre Cambrian's upcoming production of Oklahoma (I wish) to express my consternation over a report in the May 3 edition of Northern Life.  Libby Dornbush in her review of the STC's Little Shop of Horrors suggests when it closes May 20, there will be no more theatre in Sudbury until the fall.

In reading the review, I am bothered by the confusion that it creates in my mind as a reader. 

Perhaps she was referring only to productions of and by the STC on its own stage. However, it certainly reads more like it's the absolute last opportunity for any theatre experience until the fall.

If it leaves confusion in my mind as the producer, what does it leave in the minds of the readers of Northern Life?

Another part of the confusion lies in the fact that, throughout many years, Northern Life has been a corporate sponsor Theatre Cambrian's productions each year, and while not a sponsor of this show, Northern Life is carrying advertising for our production.

Additionally, the program for STC's production of Little Shop carries advertising for Theatre Cambrian's production of Oklahoma as we will be performing it on the stage of the STC.

I would ask that Northern Life help us out by printing a timely correction to the misleading review on the Entertainment page of an upcoming edition.
