Vanier Theatre will present its fundraising show Spring Variety Night this Saturday.

This show will celebrate talent at Vanier and beyond and raise money for Vanier’s trips to the Provincial Drama Festival in New Westminster and the National Improv Tournament and festival in Ottawa.

The show begins at 7 p.m. in the Vanier Studio Theatre and will feature some of Vanier’s most talented and hardest-working musicians, singers, dancers and actors as well as some special performers including Pantuso Dance’s Lindsay Sterk.

Vanier’s junior entry into the North Island Festival — The Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon — was chosen from among 14 junior and senior plays to represent the region at the Provincial Drama Festival in May.

In addition they will take part in workshops with theatre professionals and have the opportunity to have their show adjudicated by esteemed acting teacher Andrew McIlroy.

Although Vanier is not competing this year, several members of the senior improv team will attend the national tournament and festival as delegates, watching the top 20 teams in the country and Australian teams compete, and taking part in a number of workshops led by the some of the best improvisers in the country.

Vanier is grateful for all the performers who are donating their time and talent to help them put on this show and to make the money to get to their festivals.

Tickets are $10 including refreshments and are available from Vanier improvisers and at the door while supplies last.
