What To Do After You Think You've Done It All
From childhood to career, retirement and post-retirement, the arts have played a major role in the life of Jacqueline Dunckel Donoghue. In this, our last session for the season, Jacqueline will share with you a part of her journey as she takes a light look at her life in the arts from making sure Tyrone Power is wearing pants he can sit down in, to how she got the job as the storyteller for Sunny Boy Cereal, to local productions for CBC Radio Wednesday Night, to acting in the first professional Theatre Calgary production before it was Theatre Calgary, on to playing a role in Calgary’s first dinner theatre and finally what she did after that and what she is doing now. It promises to be a relaxed, laugh-filled time together.
