Have you ever dreamed of performing under the lights on a stage in front of adoring fans?
Have you felt the urge to direct, be a stage manager or be in control of the music and lights at a gala event? Maybe you want to share your talents and instruct junior actors.
If you would like to make any of these dreams happen it is time to join the Thompson Valley Players, they need you!
The Thompson Valley Players annual general meeting will be held April 1, 7 p.m., in the North Thompson Volunteer and Information Centre at the Ridge in Barriere.
Everyone interested is welcome to attend and the group encourages all ages to come out and be a part of their vibrant organization.
“We really are in need of actors and tech people, and know there has to be some hidden talent out there just waiting to join in the fun,” said group representative Beverly Murphy.
The Thompson Valley Players are busy throughout the year, and currently are helping out with the planning of ‘The Gong Show’, the latest fundraiser of the North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo Association, which will take place the Mother’s Day weekend on Saturday, May 9.
“We are also in the planning stages of the 2015 Youth Summer Camps, in partnership with Barriere and Area Literacy Outreach,” said Murphy, “And we are making plans for shows at the Bandshell this summer, and hopefully we will also have a Fall Production.”
As our readers can see, there are a number of different events that need performers and volunteers like you; so if you would like to act, work behind the scenes, or work on production TV Players have something for you.
Everyone is invited to attend the April 1 meeting where you can meet a great group and share your ideas.
“We need new members in order to continue, as it takes a good team effort to put on these events,” said Murphy, “The Thompson Valley Players have been entertaining in the valley and helping out at all kinds of community events since 1999, and we look forward to seeing some new faces at the next meeting and maybe some old ones too! Please come out and see what we are all about!”
