The Puzzle Jigs was composed in 1989 by British composer David Haines and has been adapted with a new libretto by A.J. Liuba and David Bass.

Assisting in this production are award-winning choreographer Deborah Mason, acclaimed set designer Peter Watson, Lighting Designer and Technical Director Dale Senechal, Dramatic Directors David Sandberg, Kathy Lindsay, and Phil Budne, and Producer Cheryl Moreau.


Powers of Ten  

Powers of Ten

Powers of Ten is a 90-minute choral and multimedia presentation that explores the scales of the universe from sub-atomic to cosmic and comprises 21 brilliant musical selections which are subtle and sophisticated enough to capture the interest of adults while still lyrical enough for a child's ear. Artwork by the younger participants, inspired by the content of the music, will be displayed overhead (along with the lyrics) during the performances, and selected numbers will be complemented by interpretive dance.
