A Shaw rehearsal – this time for cricket

The Shaw Festival cricket team is scheduled for its annual cricket game with the Stratford Festival in late August in Stratford. As part of the prep for that Stratford encounter, the Shaw Cricket Club was hosted for a warm-up game by the Niagara Cricket Club. The Lake Report’s correspondent was on hand for the regulation pregame photo op. Shaw’s cricket leaders include artistic director Tim Carroll (standing, fifth from right) and team captain Jeff Irving (seated, fifth from left and padded up and ready to keep wicket). Rumour has it that TC’s artistic talents extend also to batting, bowling and close-in fielding.
