Owen Ferguson, a student at Henry Street High School (HSHS) in Whitby, auditioned for a one-act play back in Grade 9. He had started taking drama classes that year. Now in Grade 12, Ferguson continues to audition and participate in drama productions. He says his favourite role so far has been Mercutio, the witty sceptic and foil for Romeo is Shakespeare’s 1597 tragedy Romeo and Juliet.
Success stories are meant to be shared. The journalism students at Durham College (DC) and the Participation House Project (PH) of Durham Region worked together to create a book to celebrate Participation House’s 40th anniversary and share the stories of the people they’ve helped.
