Amazingly, our tiny community has a playwright and a theatre troupe. The playwright is Sharon Stearns and the troupe called the Robson Valley Theatre Collective. They periodically write, produce and present drama for the area. Last night I went to see the opening night of their play, “Farmalot.”
It is was a fun and rowdy mixture of “Camelot” and the modern genetically modified food industry, full of song, talking ravens, and comedy. I am always impressed at the talent that is hidden away in our little valley. Its always a treat when it comes out into the open.
There is a tremendous amount of work that goes into these productions that are only performed 4 times (one more tonight in McBride, and then two performances next weekend in Valemount), Go see it, if you can still find a ticket.
