"Wells/Barkerville. I highly encourage you to attend the Sunset Theatre's evening performance of Awakening My People Through Sweatlodge by Marcel Gagnon and developed by Karen Jeffery. The story telling is beautiful, awakening, humorous, and heart-wrenching. The music and singing reaches into your soul." BJ Bailey, Actor, Playwright
