With a raft of Merritt Award nominations just announced, Two Planks and a Passion Theatre needs to raise some money for its 2014 season.

The Canning-area theatre company is holding a no-dress-code community fundraising event on Saturday, March 29 at the Ross Creek Centre for the Arts.

Entitled ‘Hidden Treasures’, the evening will get underway at 6 p.m. and features fine food provided by Cocoa Pesto Catering, live entertainment and an auction of art and activities from our community and across Canada. Taking inspiration from the legendary hidden treasures buried by pirates along Nova Scotia’s shores, the evening will celebrate these stories while also celebrating the hidden talents of community members who will also contribute original creations to our evening.

Two Planks volunteers will transform the Ross Creek Centre into a pirate lair for an evening of relaxed fun and entertainment. Funds raised at this annual event will support the theatre’s 2014 season, including productions of Allen Cole and Michael O’Brien’s ‘The Miracle Man’ and a new adaptation of the story of Joan of Arc performed entirely around a fire entitled “Dustbowl Joan’. Tickets for the evening are $50, or $400 for a table of eight and include a three-course meal and partial tax receipt. As this evening regularly sells out, patrons are encouraged to book well ahead at For more information please contact Ken Schwartz at
