August 29, 2014 10:03 pm


More than 10 years ago, families jammed to live tunes in the shade of the trees at Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park.

This year, the Del Norte Child Care Council will resurrect its music festival on Saturday, Sept. 6, but instead of “Jammin’ at Jed,” folks will be “Rockin’ at Rowdy” to local bands, eating local food and browsing through the booths of local vendors.

Colin (Alex Adams) is challenged by Mary Lennox (Katie Schaller), right, to take a chance to live a little while his nurse (Lillie Thomas) looks on.

GOLD BEACH — “The Secret Garden” — a delightful, imaginative novel written by Frances Hodgson Burnett and adapted for the stage by Tim Kelly — is being staged by the Ellensburg Theater Company (ETC) at the Rogue Playhouse in Gold Beach. 

The show is directed by Valerie MacGillivary, produced by Geri Kendall, with musical direction courtesy of Anna Weidemiller.

The result? This well-done play is a perfect outing for the entire family just as children are scheduled to go back to school.

John Webster conducts Curry-Del Norte Orchestra during Azalea Park concert earlier this summer.

Longtime music teacher John Webster knows that one is never too old to learn to play a band instrument.
