Saving Amy to Premiere at the Waldon

The Waldon Theater in downtown Calgary is proud to present Saving Amy, a heartwarming play written and directed by Ted Gigerson. The play tells the true story of Amy Fisher, a woman who rises above the challenge of being born blind to become the first female mayor of her hometown.

Playwright Ted Giberson is truly excited about the play’s upcoming premiere on August 24. Saving Amy is the third play he has written based on Maya Adani’s novels. The Lonely Valley was shown two months ago at the Palace Theater on Winston Avenue and, last year, Donald the Overachiever prmiered at the Waldon Theather. “During my 25 years  as a playwright, I have never written a script as exciting as this one,” Gilberson said during an interview on WKRT radio yesterday.

This stage performance promises to bring both excitement and inspiration. Shows will be for three nights only, August 24, 25 and 26, at 7:30. Tickets are available either by calling the Waldon Theater’s ticket office at 433-7521 or by sending an e-mail to . Be sure to include the name of the play in the subject line.



Subject: Saving Amy

Date: August 8/1:45:22


I am a big fan of Maya Adani’s novels. I have read all six of her best-selling novels, but I have never seen a stage performance of her stories. Of course, I had hoped to watch Saving Amy on opening night, but since I will be away at a conference at that time, I would like to reserve a seat for the very last performance. I prefer  either a balcony seat  somewhere in the back row of the general seating area.

I will drop by the theater tomorrow during my luch time to pay for and pick up my ticket in person. The company where I work, Grisham Financials, is only five-minute walk from your ticket office.

Please let me know if a ticket is available by sending a text message to my cell phone. The number is 905-4733.

Thank you.

Peter Richmond.

David Brooker:

On behalf of everyone here at Walton Marketing, I would like to welcome you to our company. Although your position does not start until next week, I am sending you a user guide for the first item you will help us market, the SL 2000 printer by Slalom Electric Inc. Slalom has been our biggest client for the past 10 years, so we hope to create a successful campaign for the company.

As a marketing assistant, your  main task will be helping out the marketing agent to all the companies listed on the eclosed schedule and provide demonstrations of the product. Also, remember to keep track of the number of companies you visit on the enclosed time sheet. As explained during the interview, marketing assistants are hired as temporary workers and, therefore, are required to record their  own work hours.

If, for some reason, you must be absent on any day, please contact your regional supervisor whose name and cell phone number are included in the bottom left corner of the schedule. As the regional supervisor is in charge of several marketing agents and assistants, you may have to call a few times before she or he is available.

Again, welcome to Walton and we hope you enjoy working with us.

Sincerely yours,

Mildred Sutherland, Director
