With a sharp eye for stage productions, well-known Kaatza Lakeside Players volunteer Lindsay Anderson helped this year’s 11 Lady of the Lake candidates prepare for Lake Days, during a Wednesday, May 25, rehearsal.

Anderson last wowed crowds with her portrayal of the emotionally-damaged Ruth in the Kaatza Lakeside Players’ production of Cosi, last month.

Last Wednesday, she passed on her knowledge of the stage to the local Lady of the Lake Candidates, who plan on practicing “like crazy,” according to volunteer organizer Denise Allen, until the Opportunity Night and Grand Ball talent show hurdles has been cleared.

During Opportunity Night, Wednesday, June 8, and the Grand Ball, Friday, June 10, the girls are expected to perform their talent for the public, at the Upper Centennial Hall.

Previous years’ talents have included a multitude of things, from science experiments to elaborate dance routines.

As the May 25 rehearsal shows, this year’s candidates have an equally wide range of talents to showcase.

In addition to Opportunity Night, the ladies are to take part in a Strawberry Tea event for seniors, Monday, June 6, at the Lower Centennial Hall.

The Lady of the Lake Grand Ball is to take place Friday, June 10, and includes Lady of the Lake speeches and a fashion show, in addition to the talent portion.

Three of the ladies will be crowned at Saywell Park, Saturday, June 11, at 2 p.m., and will then set forth to represent the Cowichan Lake area throughout the province and further, until next summer’s ladies of the lake are crowned.
