Friday night, downtown Campbell River will transform into multiple entertainment venues to open the holiday season.

RainCoast Creative’s Performing Arts students Madelaine Nabbe and Rory Shade along with others will be performing a ‘Dickens’ style Musical Theatre vignette in front of the Tidemark.

RainCoast’s Performing Arts program is a unique approach to teaching musical theatre.

Included in the program, each student receives private voice lessons, group choreography and repertoire classes and workshops taught by professionals in the theatre industry. Several years ago, Heather Gordon Murphy, Connie Preston and Kristy Miller began talking about putting their individual teaching skills together into a comprehensive program for youth. Last spring, RainCoast opened its doors in its downtown studio across from Robert Ostler Park.

“We love what we do and are excited to give youth in Campbell River opportunities to grow in music and theatre.  It’s such an expressive art form and it builds such confidence in kids,” says Amy Lelliott, the newest RainCoast teacher.

For more information or registration for the spring semester, call Gordon Murphy at (250) 287-4536 or Miller at (250) 923-0531.
