Our 2019/2020 season is winding down, and therefore so is our year of humour!

To celebrate, the Place des Arts staff wants to share what makes them laugh. Humour is something that brings us all together. We hope this will give some joy and inspiration during tough times.

My kids make me laugh as well as our 1-year-old golden retriever Maggie May and our cat Lucy Lou Who. Maggie pushes my kids with her nose and then looks at her treat cupboard after pushing them so that they know what she’s thinking. Cracks us up every time.
