Another chance to see Artword Theatre’s musical play You Are What You Do
“Beautifully written and directed by Ronald Weihs. … a visually arresting experience. It’s well worth your time.” Gary Smith, Hamilton Spectator

In the end though, it is the songs themselves that you carry away with you leaving the theatre. You Are What You Do is a must-see.” Brian Morton, View Magazine
Special price for groups! Book online on the show’s website: www.artword.net/youarewhatyoudo or call Artword 905-548-0341.
