Gift of theatre a dramatic thanks for campus support staff

Co-operative Education and Career Services and the Student Success Centre are offices that recognize the courage of those who come to them, and reward it, says Billy Chandler, president of the drama student society Club SODA.

He led a delegation Wednesday presenting their staffs with complimentary tickets to the current University Players production, Anna in the Tropics.

“We wanted to thank everyone involved for pursuing a career path that centres on helping others,” he said. “For everyone who has graduated on time, whose GPA saw an increase from your help, who has learned from your incredible staff––we just want to show our appreciation.”

The student group plans to give show tickets to different campus service offices through the year. Next up is a presentation October 19 of tickets to see Blithe Spirit. Anna in the Tropics runs through Sunday in Essex Hall Theatre. For tickets or showtimes, phone the box office at 519-253-3000, ext. 2808.
