Ghoulies and ghosties and long-legged beasties looking for a some fun this Pro-D Day can join Joey Clarkson for a high-energy day of song and dance.

This young lady has introduced hundreds of children and youth to the joy of musical theatre.

Clarkson has been teaching workshops all across Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland through distance education schools and private groups since she was a teen.

Many of you will remember her as the musical director for the past two summers for Rainbow Youth Theatre for the past two summers.

“This is really going to be a fun one!” smiles Clarkson. “The song I have chosen to work on is the classic Bobby Picket number Monster Mash, perfect for Halloween!”

Winner of an A Channel Amazing Kids Award and a variety of community service awards, as well as a past finalist in Canada’s prestigious Top 20 Under 20, Clarkson also finds time to work on her recording projects with Highland Music Multimedia.

The Pro-D Monster Mash workshop will run this Friday from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Comox Valley Kung Fu Academy at 3-1491 McPhee Ave. in Courtenay, with a little presentation at the end of the class.

The Pro-D workshop is open to all school aged children, but space is limited. Call Joey Clarkson at 250-334-2208 or e-mail for more information.
