Baseball in the Time of Craigdarroch

at Craigdarroch Castle and Historic House Museum

Address: 1050 Joan Crescent, Victoria

Confederation in Canada and the Civil War in the United States led to profound socio-economic upheaval in the final three decades of the Nineteenth Century. Growth in venture capital, an emerging middle class, and generally stabilized urban societies created a new oligopoly which enabled hundreds of talented immigrants each year to escape the dangers and drudgery of mines, factories, and rail yards. These emerging celebrities were paid high wages, by working-class standards, to be the stars of what is now officially call Major League Baseball. That their exploits could easily be updated so that they could join their Twenty First Century counterparts will be proven by Dr. Seth C. Hawkins, Director of the Julian H. Sleeper House Museum, a Craigdarroch-era heritage site in St. Paul, Minnesota. Dr. Hawkins is the celebrity baseball fan who has been present for more MLB milestones and records than anyone in the last sixty-five years. He is a former University administrator and competitive speaking coach.

Red Death

Address: 1050 Joan Crescent, Victoria

Playing with apocalyptic themes such as viruses and zombie-like epidemics in which the civilized world is brought to its knees by a global infestation, Launch Pad brings you a mash up of the styles of gothic horror master Edgar Allan Poe and the narcotic fume of 1970’s disco culture.

Say What? Deciphering Shakespeare

at Craigdarroch Castle and Historic House Museum

Address: 1050 Joan Crescent, Victoria

Few would argue that Shakespeare has an important place in the school curriculum. What his plays have to teach us about human nature and the power of language is unquestioned. However, his work poses a real challenge to students – and educators – because it is some of the most difficult text they will encounter. Join the Greater Victoria Shakespeare Festival as they bring the words off the page and offer students Grades 7-12 strategies to understand and appreciate the playwright’s language and themes. Students will connect to these classic works from a modern perspective, discover why they have remained relevant for more than 400 years, and experience the power of Shakespeare through active participation and performance using dynamic, language-based methods that are accessible, enlightening and fun!
