Penticton Western News letters to the editor.

Letter: Thanks for supporting the arts

Thanks to the people of Penticton and of the Okanagan who support the arts

Thanks for supporting the arts

I wish to say a thank you to the people of Penticton and of the Okanagan who support the arts, especially live theatre.

Thank you to everyone who came out to the recent run of A Christmas Carol that ran Wednesday through Monday recently. A belated thanks to those who supported A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and before it 12 Angry Jurors, as well as all the other plays that have been performed for the public.

I learned drama and acting at Cambie and Earl Marriott schools along with night classes and it has been extraordinary to me to have performed in Fiddler on the Roof before I graduated then many years later to accidentally return to acting with 12 Angry Jurors, which led indirectly to A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which directly led to A Christmas Carol.

I am thankful for the experiences, the learning but most of all I am so thankful for the people I have met and worked with such as Colin, Martin, Dawn, Eleanor, Liz and Paris along with too many others to name.

For me, it was high school acting that had the most impact on my life in many different ways, though I do appreciate all the subjects and teachers from school.
