It’s an opportunity to relive an overlooked part of Canadian history through the experiences of Mennonite Conscientious Objectors during World War II. The stage production Yellow Bellies is coming to Southern Manitoba this weekend with stops in Winnipeg and Gretna Saturday and Sunday respectively. Johnny Wideman is one of the co-authors of the production, and is a featured actor in it. He shared with us on Thursday’s Morning Show a little back story on the alternative service Conscientious Objectors did do during the War.

 

 

Johnny also spoke about what inspired the creation of the show.

 

 

And he also talked to us about the importance of continuing to tell the story of Conscientious Objectors even though that period of time is nearly eighty years ago.

 

 

Yellow Bellies will be performed Saturday, October 14th at 2pm at Gas Station Theatre in Winnipeg, and then at 7pm. Sunday, October 15th, the production will take the stage at Buhler Hall in Gretna at 7pm. Tickets will be available at the door for both shows, and you can also reserve yours now by clicking here.
