The value of Klaglahachie Society

Reader praises Klaglahachie performances over recent weeks.

Dear Editor,

Mary Poppins was a smash hit, the new theatre seating proved to be a favourite with audiences. There were eight performances, with over 200 at each show and a total of over 2,000 for the eight performances. Sunday, Dec. 6 matinee was a sellout with 323 people attending.

Klaglahachie Fine Arts Society is a wonderful venue to showcase the very talented people that bring the story alive. The cast was blesssed with actors from ages nine years to 79 years and all ages in between.

Central Alberta is very lucky to have Klaglahachie provide the opportunity to people young and old. The opportunity provided has changed the lives of young actors. Shy kids have turned into outgoing, boisterous individuals. The confidence the young people gain by being on stage will be with them the rest of their lives. What a contribution Klaglahachie gives those that take part in this wonderful production!

With my personal “Thank you” to Klaglahachie Fine ARts Society
