WINNIPEG, November 10, 2015 – The riveting true story of an ordinary man who dedicated his life to one extraordinary mission comes to the stage in WIESENTHAL, Tom Dugan’s award-winning play that explores the life and work of dedicated Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal.

Silver, Sound Designer Shane Rettig, Production Stage Manager Katherine Barrett, Production Manager Mind the Gap, Inc., Tour General Management DR Theatrical Management, Tour Brand Management DR Advertising and Associate Producers David Bryant and Jeff Rosen.
