Apr 8 4TH ANNUAL KOOTENAY HOME EDUCATORS’ THEATRE PRODUCTION: A ROCKIN TALE OF SNOW WHITE
Each spring for the past four years, a group of home educated children aged 4 to 16 has gathered under the direction of Jeff Forst to produce a play. This year, the cast of thirty-two kids has been practicing since January for A Rockin Tale of Snow White, a musical take on the traditional fairy tale.

This year’s production will take place April 8 at the Covenant Church in Nelson with two shows: a matinee at 4:00 and an evening show at 7:30. Tickets are by donation which help pay production costs.

What started as a loosely organized group of home educating moms and dads trying to provide theatre opportunities for their kids has now turned into a highly anticipated spring event, with both shows typically selling out. This year’s show has grown to include a musical director, Paul Prappas, as well as director Jeff Forst. Mothers and fathers help as well with production, costumes, set design and musical accompaniment.

Past performances included The Wizard of Oz, Peter Pan and Twinderella, which marked the first year the group performed a musical. This year’s production, A Rockin Tale of Snow White, is also a musical. The players are putting in extra hours singing practice with musical director Paul Prappas to make sure they are ready for the April 8th performance.

Apr 10 Symphony of the Kootenays presents A Dvorak Celebration featuring cellist Jeff Faragher, sponsored by the Selkirk Chamber Orchestra with support from Nelson and District Credit Union, Columbia Basin Trust Sponsorship Program, & Nelson Brewing Company.
The SOTK is coming to Nelson, thanks especially to cellist Jeff Faragher, violist Alexis More and concertmaster Wendy Herbison, members of the Selkirk Chamber Orchestra which is raising money to pay the travel costs and fees of the musicians. The full orchestra includes 42 players, 29 of whom live in the Basin. Local teachers such as Tim Bullen, Keith Todd, Ruth Langevin & Josette Laforge are included. The program is all Dvorak, a Romantic-period Czech composer whose works have lovely melodies and catchy rhythms. The cello concerto is a huge undertaking for the soloist, but it is a symphonic masterpiece in its own right. Dvorak’s 8th Symphony completes the dramatic program. Nelson’s own Jeff Faragher is the soloist for the concerto alongside Conductor and Music Director Bruce Dunn. A pre-concert presentation at 6:45 is included. Tickets: Capitol Theatre box office, 412 Victoria Street, 250-352-6363 or online at www.capitoltheatre.bc.ca; info at 250-509-3426 or 250-229-5487.
