Sooke Harbour Players to hold AGM and dance on June 21

It’s  gala,  open stage,  annual general meeting and it’s all happening on June 21.

The Sooke Harbour Players are racking up another year of credits for their performances and hard work by the volunteers. Godspell was their large musical production and they have other productions in the works. Thom Southwood is in the middle of getting Afterlife onto the stage for Halloween and others are working at a mini-musical performance for the Leechtown Day on July 19.

“We had a great turn out for cast for Afterlife,” said players president Steve Anderson. “But we could use backstage and production help.”

The Leechtown musical was written by Linda Abraham and the script is based on the gold rush at Leechtown.

“They will be singing some authentic 1800s songs,” said Anderson. “It’s a mini musical thing.”

The Annual General Meeting will be more than people sitting around in chairs and voting in the next executive. That business part will take about an hour and then Taylor Caspersen takes the open stage to get people up and jamming.

“He’s a young talent and we encourage him,” said Anderson.

The gala evening will be held at the Sooke Community Hall dining room on June 21 beginning at 7 pm.

Anderson said the event is open to anyone with an interest in theatre, not just Sooke Harbour Players members. He said they want to draw more people into the fold of the players group.

“You can learn a lot of new things being involved,” said Anderson. If you want to get involved contact the groups at: sookeharbourplayersinfo@gmail.com.

Sooke Harbour Players has a new logo, is increasing their social media presence and they’ve updated their website: sookeharbourplayers.com.

Sooke Harbour Players had a name change in 2012, previously they were known as Stage West Players. They have been in the arts scene in Sooke since 1982 and have entertained with many productions including musicals, dinner theatre and plays.
