Live theatre ‘genuine and inspiring’

'PERHAPS WE NEED live theatre now more than ever

Dear editor,

Rainbow Youth Theatre wonderfully celebrates 80 shows in 25 years with its fall family show Seven Brides for Seven Brothers at the Sid Williams Theatre.

Produced by Doug Barr and Rosie Smith and expertly and artistically directed by the talented Danette Bell with input from Canadian theatre royalty’s Jeff Hyslop, this show thrives as a show not to be missed.

The sets, costumes, props, choreography, singing, live orchestra, and fight scene (assisted by Danette’s husband Derek Smith) all feed the senses.

You will laugh and laugh, and marvel at how the large cast of diverse ages takes us back to the early 1850s where we are reminded that people dressed, spoke, and acted differently from now, but in their hearts still felt much the same.

Perhaps we need live theatre now more than ever; it is so genuine and inspiring to see and hear live individuals sing, dance, and act. It is also refreshing to see no one use a cell phone or other technological device for a couple of hours, and to be entertained by such talented children, teens, and adults, who pour their hearts and souls on the stage each night.

Congratulations to the many behind the scenes and on the stage who make all of this happen.

You can still buy remaining tickets by phoning the Sid at 250-338-2430 or online at sidwilliamstheatre.com. The final shows will be this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

Don’t miss this show!

Lisa Grant,

Comox Valle
