West Coast children’s stage production draws crowds

The Pacific Rim Arts Society would like to thank everyone who played a part in helping us bring the play, Blackbeard the Pirate, to Tofino this past week. This was the 22nd Missoula Children’s Theatre production that our local children have participated in.

We are very happy to say that all 30 children who came out to the auditions on Monday

all got a part in the play and have been practicing very hard every night under the guidance of Missoula directors Marta Knodle from Wisconsin and Osmary Nieves from Florida.

We would like to send a big Thank you to The Wickaninnish Community School for hosting the show again this year and to Jamie’s Rainforest Inn for hosting Marta and Osmary. Thank you also to our sponsors the BC Gaming Commission, District of Ucluelet, The Westerly News, The Tofino Co-op and Crabapple Floral. We would also like to thank Melody Saddler, who has generously donated her time again this year, as the accompanist for the production in Tofino.

We would like to thank the audience, about 200 of you, who came out to both shows, especially on such a busy weekend. With all of your amazing support the Pacific Rim Arts Society will continue to work at showcasing Arts & Culture to the West Coast. Watch for the upcoming ArtSplash! Art Show featuring several local artists, only a month away, March 15th to 23rd.

Suzanne Ryles is the Coordinator for the Pacific Rim Arts Society.
