The new musical traces the journey of two star-crossed lovers torn apart during the deportation of thousands of Acadians out of Atlantic Canada in 1755. This is no small-scale production, with 30 equity actors, a 1200-seat theatre, and a live orchestra. For Writer, director Ted Dykstra it's a dream come true. CBC's Lindsay Carroll sat down with several members of the show's cast and crew.
