Saik’uz & Settlers: A Weave of Local History

Friday, March 18 and Saturday, March 19, 2011 – Small Auditorium at NVSS

Starting with the First Nations Dakelh people and weaving in the stories of the early pioneers that came to settle the Nechako Valley, this play marches along the historical timeline. Sometimes sad, sometimes happy, sprinkled with comedy and loaded with drama, the play promises to entertain and enlighten its audiences.

Written and directed by Lisa Striegler

Doors open at 7:00 pm

Tickets $5

Everyone is invited to stay after the production for hors d’oeuvres – a smorgasbord celebrating our community’s diversity.

Available at Wallace’s Studio and the Vanderhoof Department Store with all proceeds going to Neighbourlink.

Come out and support the arts in your community!
