‘The Secret Garden’: A production for the entire family

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.


Music for everyone

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.

That’s why Webster, with the help of Southwestern Oregon Community College, has launched the New Horizons Band project. It will offer adults a chance to play concert band instruments such as clarinet, saxophone, oboe and flute. The band will not include string instruments.


Canadian group performs Sunday in Azalea Park

The acoustic quartet West My Friend will perform in Azalea Park band shell Sunday.

The Canadian four-piece acoustic band West My Friend will play everything from indie-roots to chamber-folk, with a healthy dose of four-part harmonies during an American Music Festival concert at 1 p.m. Sunday at the Azalea Park amphitheater.

West My Friend songs feature “well-crafted and clever lyrics, acrobatic mandolin riffs, flawless bass lines, and richly textured accordion,” according to the band’s website.

The band members, each of whom have a wealth of experience and classical training, are Eden Oliver, vocals, guitar and flute; Alex Rempel, mandolin and vocals; Jeff Poynter, accordion and vocals, and Adam Bailey, stand-up bass and vocals.


Space available for annual Stagelights Day of Drums

A girl tries her hand at drumming at a previous Day of Drums event.

Space is still available for the third annual “Day of Drums,” a fun, hands-on percussion event for all ages and skill levels, scheduled for 10 a.m to 2 p.m. in Brookings on Saturday, Aug. 23.

The event, hosted by Stagelights Musical Arts Community, will be led by professional percussionists Mombo Hernandez and Michael Penny at the Harris Beach Rest Area (off Highway 101 across from Harris Beach State Park).  


Food for those in need

A volunteer waters a variety of vegetables.

Lynette McPherson is in a grocery store rebellion.

She’s not angry at anyone, or upset that her favorite brand of organic yogurt is no longer on the shelf.

“I’m not stepping in a grocery store until November first,” she stated. “And it’s been three weeks.”

Her rationale is multi-fold.
