Welcome to Kingstonist’s weekly challenge, dare, resolution or whatever you prefer to call it. Each week we establish a new and ambitious community goal, encouraging our readers, followers, friends and families to step out of their comfort zones and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. Consider this your official and personal invitation to join us in completing a small but meaningful achievement. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston a slightly better place to live, work and play. And of course, we also hope that you will feel proud of your contribution and achievement.
This week’s challenge encourages you to:
Check out Sir John, Eh? The Musical. Last night I caught the well-attended premiere of Sir John Eh? The Musical at The Grand Theatre. As advertised, the production was bursting with song, humour and history, all centred on Canada’s first and finest Prime Minister. In fact, I would lying if I didn’t admit that I learned a thing or two about Sir John…warts and all. This musical is a key piece of Sir John A.’s 198th birthday celebrations, while it runs from January 9th until the 12th. That’s all to say, if your even slightly interested in taking in this affordable and entertaining show, now’s the time to make plans and get your tickets. If you’re keen on checking out tonight’s show for free, we’re giving away a pair of tickets to the first person who submits a comment to this challenge.
Sign up and commit to completing this week’s challenge by commenting below with an “I’m in“, “challenge accepted“, “en garde” or something along those lines.
