On Saturday October 19th, 2019, Moose Jaw should be prepared to experience their Western Development Museum in a whole different way. The WDM has invited the Live History theatre company to host a workshop for youth, and to perform the show “Behind Glass”, an interactive performance that turns audiences into participants. Live History is the Governor General’s Award nominated theatre company that specializes in bringing local history to life.

They are happy to show you around and share tales about the other exhibits. As you hear stories from their lives, it becomes clear that one of them is the culprit behind some disturbances at the WDM. The audience will experience a full tour of the Museum while interacting with the characters and while solving an urgent Museum mystery. Think "escape room meets museum visit!"
