E.A. Rawlinson Centre

On, April 1 the E.A. Rawlinson Centre presented the Canadian debut of ‘Feet Don’t Fail Me Now’, a theatrical extravaganza by Rhythmic Circus from Minneapolis. 

This energetic show with a life-affirming message was greatly appreciated by people of all ages.  Hats off to the many businesses in Prince Albert who support the E. A. Rawlinson Centre as annual sponsors and advertising sponsors.  Without their generosity the presentation of such a show would not be possible. 

Thank you to the local media for helping us promote our concerts with a special nod to the Prince Albert Daily Herald for the wonderful pictures that appear in the paper and online to immortalize the performances.
