    Presenting “An Unconventional Life”, original musical theatre at the Silverton Gallery on Saturday, April 6th, 7:30 pm (Doors open at 7)
    Imagine a time when girls were denied an education; “An Unconventional Life” is a story about such a girl.  Performed as if speaking to a graduating class, she looks back on her life and tells her story with spoken narrative and song.   Join Lynn, Noémi, and Judy as they tell the tale of a young Orthodox Jewish woman who challenged the status quo and chose education over traditional values.

    Created and performed by renowned soprano Noémi Kiss, writer and actor Lynn van Deursen with piano arrangements and accompaniment by Judy Runions, the show  features the songs from the 1983 movie Yentl, (composed by the late Michel Legrand, with lyrics by Marilyn and Alan Bergman).

    Please come and enjoy an original show by some of the West Kootenays best loved performers!  A theatrical & musical treat!Advance tickets for sale from MARCH 16th at Rutabaga’s and Silverton Building Supplies, and at the door. All tickets $18.00

    A long-standing volunteer firefighter, community member and friend, Doug Fischer and his wife Shay, lost their home to a fire on March 2, 2019. At the drop of a hat, Doug would stop anything he was doing to help others. In this time, we are asking for donations to help Doug and Shay get back on their feet.

    Donations may also be made through Kootenay Savings account #1625037 New Denver Masterplan or cheques made out to Fischer Family Fundraiser.

    Doug and Shay would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude to the community and everyone who has offered support, donations and kind gestures.
