WCT’s Stage One Theatre School Presents: The Trials of Robin Hood

Western Canada Theatre’s Stage One Theatre School is proud to present the talent of our students in The Trials of Robin Hood, performed by this summer’s Performance Class.

Robin Hood is on trial for stealing from the rich and giving to the poor and must defend himself to King Richard. The only problem is the King has just returned from the Crusades, and he now has to determine the truth! Is Robin Hood a hero, lover, or evil criminal? Robin, Maid Marian and the Sheriff of Nottingham each tell their interpretation of events, but ultimately, it’s up to the audience to decide!

With something to please everyone young and old, this is the story Continue reading WCT’s Stage One Theatre School Presents: The Trials of Robin Hood

Just $5 dollars helps fund our forest

Remember those childhood days when you just couldn’t wait to get outside? You thought you were playing but what you were really doing was learning. With nature as your classroom, you were learning teamwork, sharing, exploring, questioning (How do flowers really grow?) and how big the world can be when you add your imagination to it. Learning through nature is at the core of the Kamloops Child Development Centre – and our amazingly big yard is a key component: our own natural classroom for our children to play and learn.

This classroom needs to continue to grow and it’s the focus of our major fundraising project now. Our plans include replacing the decade-old equipment and, in its place, building a natural wonderland that researchers can confirm brings so many benefits to our ever-growing number of children who come to our centre, not just for care but, as our name says so dryly, to develop. We prefer to Continue reading Just $5 dollars helps fund our forest
