One thought on “Anna Silk

  1. I’m trying to get a message to Ilkay Silk, friend of the late Walter Learning…
    I suddenly realized I ought to contact Walter to thank him for hiring me in summer ’90 at Charlottetown and tell him I had a wonderful summer playing “Charlie Chamberlain” and other things, thanks to him…So I looked him up and found he had passed two years ago.
    As an actor/singer I learned from directors good bad and strange, so I was so happy to
    have worked for a director who I could actually look up to as a philosopher as well as a man of the Theatre….Growing up in St. John’s I’d always thought the Don Messer Show was hoaky though the musicianship was superb. But, John Gray’s retrospective show was great fun to perform in because of Walter and because the audiences were so happy to relive what was then merely the recent past. The following summer Walter led us in a tour of Japan with the “Anne” show…Even than summer paled for me before that first summer.
    How sorry I am that I waited this long before trying to contact Walter. Pls pass this comment on to Ilkay S if you have any contact with her and thank you, Frank Holden, St. John’s
