It was a happy day for the Kaatza Lakeside Players when they received news from Telus on the success of their grant application and would receive $4200.

The cheque was presented to Patricia Cumming this week by TELUS representative Peter Fox.

KLPS applied for the first time to the TELUS Community Action Team that contributes to charitable organizations across Canada. The main criteria for funding in the area of arts and culture is a program that focuses on youth.

The primary mandate of KLPS is to provide the community with a learning experience in the theatre arts, including the technology and other non-acting tasks that are required to put on a production. Of course, ensuring an enjoyable theatre experience for the audience is an important goal, too.

KLPS also contributes to the success of other community groups by volunteering their theatrical expertise for local events.

The Kaatza Players recently finished a successful run of the ever popular “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever” where 21 children and 6 adults on stage experienced theatre first-hand under the Artistic Direction of Dena Mc Phee.

If anyone is interested in this great learning opportunity, auditions for the spring production “Mending Fences” will be held on Jan. 10 and 12, at 7 p.m. at the Lake Cowichan Centennial Hall, located at 309 South Shore Rd.

In conjunction with this, KLPS will be hosting another “Behind the Curtain” party highlighting non-acting volunteer opportunities.
