Winnipeg Walk for Human Rights · Hosted by Brian Bowman
Please join me and many others as we walk in solidarity to show our support for diversity, inclusion, and human rights.

Winnipeg today is a growing, diverse city. Our compassion, diversity, and acceptance of new people and cultures are what make us strong. Now, more than ever, is a time for compassion. It is a time for us to embrace our values of openness, acceptance, and diversity, and it is a time to ensure fear does not triumph over hope and humanity.

As part of RMTC’s ChristieFest, this special benefit reading of A Murder is Announced will take place with 11 of Winnipeg’s best actors. And you, the audience, get the chance to sleuth along with Miss Marple.

The residents of Chipping Cleghorn are intrigued by an ominous announcement in the town gazette. Is there really going to be a murder that evening? Miss Marple, among others, cannot resist finding out. Many clues, twists, and turns later, Miss Marple solves the crime, showing that seniors can be canny mystery solvers. 
A brief intermission gives the audience the chance to guess "whodunnit" and one lucky detective will be awarded a copy of Christie's biography.

PAL Winnipeg is a not for profit, registered charitable organization dedicated to providing affordable housing and support services for older members of our community, particularly those in the performing and allied professions.
