LSPU Hall, 3 Victoria St, St. John's

As part of NL's Come Home Year 2022 festivities, White Rooster Theatre and TODOS Productions present a public reading of the new script in development titled "NewfoundLanded" by Vanessa Cardoso-Whelan, Santiago Guzmán, & Nabila Qureshi, at the Historic LSPU Hall. NewfoundLanded is a verbatim theatre play that seeks to bring the untold stories from immigrant communities across our province to the stage, whilst creating a platform for these voices to be heard, celebrated, and acknowledged.


“Curating live sponsored performance opportunities for emerging artists is an extension of CMI’s professional development mandate to help them develop sustainable businesses. The TD Music Connected Series’ national expansion of Play The Parks not only helps to accomplish this, but also works to bring many communities together while showcasing cultural and musical diversity.” — Jesse Mitchell, Director, CMI Live


Celebrate the diversity of talent in our community. This series is part of an initiative led by MusicNL and the Association for New Canadians to increase representation and recognition from immigrant musicians in our province.

This is a FREE event. All ages welcome. Bring your own blanket to enjoy some music on the lawn!
