Arts briefs: ADSS and Char’s Landing making waves on the arts scene this week

Monologue auditions, movie nights and more coming up in Alberni.

Monologues auditions set

The Vagina Monologues returns to the Alberni Valley for two nights Feb. 27–28 at Char’s Landing. Local performers will be given the chance to audition for this show on Saturday, Jan. 31. Call Gwynne Hunt at 250-723-7883 or e-mail her at <gwynne1@telus.net> for an audition time and location.

There will only be four rehearsals on either Saturdays or Sundays leading up to the event.

Tickets to the event will cost $15.

Movie night at ADSS Jan. 22

The Social Justice 12 class at Alberni District Secondary School is hosting a movie night on Thursday, Jan. 22 at 7 p.m. in the school auditorium. Admission is $5 per person.

The movie they chose is The Good Lie, based on a true story of the lost children from Sudan.

“We picked this movie because it has many connections with the things that we study in Social Justice,” students Abbie Kamma, Jessica Devito, Kaitlin Larsen and Tiaunna Florczak said. “The movie also focuses on relevant problems in the world.”

Splash around at ADSS

Dance and band students at Alberni District Secondary School will put on an all-ages show called Splash! Friday, Jan. 30 from 7–9 p.m. in the ADSS theatre.

Expect performances from the ADSS Dance Class, Drama 10–12, the ADSS Choir, Jazz Band 9, the Senior Jazz Band (four different combos) and talent show finalists The ABC News Crew.

Admission is by donation.

The event will benefit the fine arts department and school music community.
