Brave performance delights audience

Standing ovation for the quality of entertainment delivered by cast members

The five cast members of Brave outdid themselves.

The musical revue show was finally seen by a public audience and the performers provided them with a memorable experience. More than 50 people were at the Chemainus 55+ Activity Centre to see it Saturday afternoon.

“The show went super well,” said director Stephanie Roth. “It was very well-attended. The support from the audience was tremendous and there was even a standing ovation.”

The performers included: Ace Copp, Laura Parkyn, Caidence Burns, Janelle Sharpe and Sierra Jones, who have been working with Roth for several months on the production, with only a brief break during the summer.

There had been a few false starts about doing the show for the residents of the Chemainus Health Care Centre as a pick-me-up. After much preparation, the show finally went ahead for residents at Eden Gardens in Nanaimo and at the Ladysmith Little Theatre for family and friends about a week apart in late August.

The Chemainus Valley Cultural Arts Society sponsored the Chemainus performance at the activity centre.

There’s no definite plans yet for a performance date at the Chemainus Health Care Centre.

“I’m still working on it,” noted Roth. “With the kids back in school, it is harder to get them together to perform during a school day. Fingers crossed something will work out soon.”
