Now they’re coming together again to offer an exciting new Montessori preschool in Calgary that unites their love for growth and exploration. Your kids will develop a passion for learning because we have a passion for your kids to learn and grow! Your kids will enjoy our program because it takes into consideration their needs and your wants. Your time and involvement matter.

All his creation is based on interpersonal relations, states and needs of modern society, passion and desire to conquer new soul territories. His piano stories are all about the people around him. Listen to his music, it is the perfect soundtrack for your life. --- Teo Milea is the first pianist to perform at NATO Headquarters in Bruxelles and also, the first pianist to perform his own work on the stage of the International Ballet Gala in Dortmund (Germany). His music is streaming on international radios from United States to Europe. “Some very talented people can construct pseudo-narratives from the music itself. Teo Milea has the rare ability to do all this with only the use of his piano… Milea has enough talent in him to become not only one of the next great piano players but composers, too".

Downstage and Forte Musical Theatre with the generous support of Hit & Myth Productions proudly present the World Premiere of CRIME DOES NOT PAY by David Rhymer and Kris Demeanor Directed by Simon Mallett March 2-5 & 7-11, 2017 @ 7:30pm With a matinee Saturday, March 11 @ 2:00pm Engineered Air Theatre, Arts Commons (225 8 Avenue SE) Recommended for ages 16 & up Recognized internationally for work that is incisive, heartwrenching and darkly funny, Calgarians David Rhymer and Kris Demeanor have spun a true story into a brand-new musical that will plant gorgeous songs and explosive ideas in your head. Bob arrives in the big city in the late 1940s with a sketchbook full of comics about how the little guy always gets pushed into the dirt by corporations and politicians, but publishers say there’s no money in bleeding hearts. When Bob falls for Violet, a lounge singer with an abusive ex-husband, inspiration strikes! He gets his big break after sexing up his stories with ‘babes and blood’ - dark depictions of true crimes where the criminals are the heroes, in a hot new title called "Crime Does Not Pay". The comics become an overnight sensation but inspire a backlash from children’s advocate Eleanor Flood, who claims their racy content is spurring horrible copycat crimes. Turns out that the trappings of success, the threat of censorship and Bob’s possessive love of Violet make for one dangerous cocktail... Five years in the making, Crime Does Not Pay is one racket you’ll want to get in on! A HEADS UP: Crime Does Not Pay includes material that some people may find upsetting or triggering, including profanity, sexual innuendo, scenes of domestic violence, and references to suicide.
