January 23 - Matthew Behrens
Perth Classic Theatre


Our outing to the Perth Classic Theatre Summer production of There’s Always Juliet was very enjoyable, so we thought we should learn more about the Festival.
Matthew Behrens is a writer and community organizer who has been Associate Producer of Perth's Classic Theatre Festival since its founding in 2010.
He will discuss growing up in a theatrical family whose travels took them everywhere from the Stratford Festival to the Neptune in Halifax and a decade in Hollywood. Along the way, he learned a lot of lessons about the power of storytelling, not only as a form of entertainment, but also as a means of achieving community improvements.

 

February 27 - Matthew Bellamy

Dr. Bellamy, Carleton University, specializes in Canadian business and economic history. His latest research has taken him into the realm of brewing history.

He is also a regular contributor to Taps: The Beer Magazine. and is currently working on the history of the Labatt’s brewery.

 PROBUS' Vital Purpose …

... to stimulate thought, interest and participation in activities at a time in life when it is easy to become complacent and self-centred.
