The final program will be screened May 4, 7 p.m. at the Hudson Village Theatre. Admission is free but reservations must be made by calling the theatre at (450) 458-5361.
On Wednesday, May 4, at 8 p.m., everyone is invited free of charge to the Hudson Village Theatre for the live, large-screen viewing of the one-hour TV show, La Petite Séduction, spotlighting our little town of Hudson, that was filmed last September with local residents and those from neighbouring municipalities, collaborating to seduce Quebec star of stage, screen, and television, actress Maude Guerin, to choose our community as a place to live.
Broadcasting for the last 10 years, and inspired by the critically-acclaimed Quebec film, La Grande Séduction, the Radio Canada show's concept is to have a small Quebec town or village try to seduce a famous Quebec celebrity into making it their home.
Last September, and welcomed by host Dany Turcotte, local talent sang, danced, entertained, and enchanted Guerin with visits to the Hudson Village Theatre, Greenwood Centre for Living History, Auberge Willow Inn, Le Nichoir, Sauvé's, as well as at a picnic in Jack Layton Park.
Evidently, the weather cooperated so beautifully allowing the production team to take so much wonderful footage that they had a dilemma trying to edit the segment down to only 45 minutes, allowing for ads.
Says Kels Deegan, lead segment organizer, “The Town of Hudson, and with thanks to the Hudson Film Society, invites its residents to get together with neighbours, friends, and family for this very special evening, one that has to be shared with others. So let's fill those seats and together cheer on all the participants who worked so hard on promoting our town of Hudson at its very best. See how many of your friends, neighbours, and family members, as well as youngsters and family pets are televised to a million viewers throughout Canada.”
The evening starts at 7 p.m. and for more info, call Karen Burgan at HVT (450) 458-5361 or e-mail Kels at firstname.lastname@example.org. It sure promises to be quite a night!
