Hey Viola!

Hey Viola! is a musical exploration of Canadian civil rights trailblazer, Viola Desmond – the fearless woman featured on Canada’s $10 bill. Award-winning blues and jazz singer and actor Krystle Dos Santos, with the support of fantastic musicians, brings the life of Viola Desmond to the stage. Follow Viola’s extraordinary journey through the life and events that shaped her to stand up against systemic racial injustices in Canada – including refusing to leave the whites-only section of Nova Scotia’s Roseland cinema in 1946.

With brilliant hits of the era and songs that influenced history; “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood”, “A Change is Gonna Come”, and “Sinnerman”, this eye-opening musical recognizes the important history and legacy that Viola Desmond left behind.

Presented in English with Traditional and Simplified Chinese subtitles.

The event is finished.
