On May 28, the PACI Dance Program presents the ‘More Than a Room’ fundraiser at 7:30.  The Dance Program offers more than dance classes. The program teaches the value of leadership, respect, confidence and hard work. The participants work together co-operatively, building each other up through successes and failures.

Last year they converted a classroom into a beautiful dance studio.  The fundraiser will enable the program to grow and to offer opportunities that would not otherwise be available.  Student performances will be presented by the dance program, the dance team, student singers and a spoken word poet.

There will be guest appearances from singers Allyson Reigh and “Eli, for Short” as well as semi-professional/professional dancers from around the province. There will be a silent auction, food and a debut Art Showing by PACI art teacher Rob Popescul.

On May 29, All Mighty Voice will be presented in the Spotlight on Local Performers Series. All Mighty Voice has just released their first full length album All For One.  Throughout May, All Mighty Voice has been and continues to tour throughout Western Canada in support of the new album.

The tour has taken them to Regina and Saskatoon and will continue on to Golden B.C., Nelson B.C., Kelowna B.C., Rosthern and Edmonton. 

Performing with All Mighty Voice is Allyson Reigh and her band. Allyson Reigh got her start in the performing arts at a young age in Prince Albert.

She continued her vocal training for three years with the University of Saskatchewan’s Greystone Singers as first soprano. For the past few years, Allyson Reigh has been performing as an independent folk artist across Canada and parts of the US. 

She has released two albums. Recently she became involved as the fourth member of the 1940s style all-female vocal group, Rosie and the Riveters.  She will perform with her band including guitarist Burke Barlow, Gent Laird on bass and Kyle Krysa on drums.

This concert will bring to a close a very busy presenting series for the E. A. Rawlinson Centre.

See you in the theatre.
