Shadow Theatre presents The Comedy Company
An extraordinary true Canadian story of the members of the Princess Patricia's Light Infantry Division. Company members were asked by their commander to put together a comedy/musical revue to entertain the troops to boost morale. During some of the most difficult fighting of the war they would conceive, write and perform comedy sketches and musical parodies to lift the spirits of the soldiers. With the help of surprisingly realistic comedy scenes and startlingly pretty cross-dressing performances they would become wildly popular.
