Fresh off the whirlwind adventure of performing #ChurchToo in The Netherlands (see below), the cast is once again packing their bags, loading into the van and heading up north to Ottawa. We are beyond thrilled to be partnering with Ottawa Mennonite Church and bringing #ChurchToo to yet another Canadian city.

Ottawa is also home to one of our #ChurchToo playwrights, Megan Piercey-Monafu, and we look forward to presenting her piece, Led Astray, in her community.

Ottawa will be the 12th city #Churchtoo has been performed in and we look forward to bringing this show to more communities both nationally and internationally.

On June 28, we had the pleasure of presenting our first international performance. Thank you so much to Global Mennonite Peacebuilding Conference and Festival (2GMP) for the opportunity of presententing #ChurchToo in Elspeet to such a wonderful and warm audience.

We couldn’t have done this without the support of our donors, raising $9229.60! Thank you to everyone who helped made our first abroad experience happen. From the bottom of our Beatnik hearts, we appreaciate all of you!
