The Winnipeg Fringe Festival is about to begin -- Wednesday, July 15th is opening night for the festival but also for "The Telephone" Gian Carlo Menotti's opera and it is one of the show being performed at this year's Fringe. It is being put on by Naomi Forman Productions and it matters to us because all three performers were born and raised in southern Manitoba and make their homes NOW in Brandon, Steinbach and Winnipeg. Four years ago -- Naomi Forman Productions was born when Naomi put on sold-out performances of StarBach's: The Coffee Cantata. Naomi and David Klassen joined forces back then and they're excited to be together again along with pianist Maddy Hildebrand in Menotti's "The Telephone" opera. The story is... well... hilarious, to put it simply... it's the tale of a man, a woman and... her telephone... he is desperate to ask her to marry him but every time he's about to... the telephone.... rings. 

 Opening night for "The Telephone" is Wednesday, July 15th at 8:00 pm. They'll be performing all of their shows at Eckhardt Grammatte Hall at the University of Winnipeg and you can check out for show times and tickets!! So proud of our local talent!
