Improv, comedy on YPC agenda
Improv, a one-act play and live music are all on the agenda for the Delta Arts Council's next Young People's Concert.
This month the series, which aims to showcase talented youth from Delta and neighbouring communities, presents contemporary music by singers Kiana Passmore, Taylor Robinson, Paul Thomas and Josephine Walker.
Ladner's Passmore has performed at the Merritt Mountain Music Festival and was a top 10 finalist for a Beat 94.5 radio station contest.
Seven-year-old Robinson recently took on the role of Gretl Von Trapp in the Footlight Theatre Company's production of the Sound of Music, while Thomas, a classical singer, was a finalist in the Ladner May Days Idol competition and a semi-finalist in the 2010 Red Robinson Talent Showdown at last year's PNE.
Walker is also no stranger to the stage, having performed at Ladner May Days, in musicals, talent shows and one-act plays at Delta Secondary School.
The Young People's Concert will also feature, for the first time, a comedic one-act play called LOL performed by South Delta Secondary students and written by 17-year-old Lee Cannon-Brown.
The audience will also be treated to Richmond-based improvisation troupe Make Me Laugh Purple Giraffe.
The concert takes place Jan. 29, 7:30 p.m. at the Tsawwassen Arts Centre (1172 56 St.). Tickets, $8, available at the door. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
