The Manitoba Museum is happy to support the Oseredok Ukrainian Cultural and Educational Centre in running a special charity event – Pier 21: the Musical! This event is a special fundraiser to support Ukrainians, in particular women who need both to find a job and take care of children after they arrived in Canada.
Join us on Friday, March 17 at 7:00 pm (doors open at 6:30 pm) to see this musical about World War II refugees. The subject remains relevant today, especially for Ukrainians in Canada, both newly arrived and descendants of those who were first refugees a century ago.
Tickets can also be purchased from Oseredok over the phone at 204-942-0218, or in-person at 184 Alexander Avenue East, Monday to Saturday, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
About Pier 21
Pier 21 is the story of refugees and immigrants fleeing Europe to the East Coast of Canada in the late summer of 1939. Soon, Pier 21 launched half a million soldiers on their way to fight Nazi Germany, as the CBC broadcasted morale-boosting programs to troops and soldiers overseas about to meet their future brides.
After the war, the Pier welcomed war brides, wounded soldiers, and a new generation of immigrants and displaced people fleeing the devastation left behind. They took their first steps on Canadian soil at the pier, and it’s this historic immigration gateway that inspired the production Pier 21: The Musical.
Music director, composer and playwright – Allen Desnoyers.
