Portal Players Relay for life team, the Capitol Thespians, are teaming up with local musicians to join the fight against cancer. On June 9th 2011 thirteen local music groups and musicians will take to the stage at the Capitol Theatre. Tickets will be available at the Capitol Theatre box office or by calling Melissa Lowe at (250) 730-7356.
The music groups are: Rob Armich and Rob Mooney, Sandy and Walter Bouleau, Janet Deakin and Dennis Olsen, Full House, Peace Keeper, Blaine Ronning, Alexandria Drew, Birgit Kuit, Dented Halos, Justin Levins, ADSS Senior Vocal Trio and Heather Costerton.
“I have never produced anything of this size in my life, I am so excited!” says Melissa Lowe, Team Captain and Variety Show Producer. This will be Lowes second year as captain for the Portal Players team. “It’s a lot of hard work, but those who I am working with are extremely kind and helpful people.”
Lowe has been a member of Portal Players for many years now and felt it was time from them to give back to a community who has been very supportive. “Relay for Life has always been big in this community, and it’s about to get bigger with this Variety Show. It will bring together other relay members and members of the community who like to listen to good music and see a great show. People will be leaving the theatre with a good warm hearted feeling,” says Lowe.

Although not an event at The Capitol Theatre, the Port Alberni Rotary Club is hosting a dinner and dance on Saturday, February 5th at Echo Centre as a fundraiser for Portal Players Dramatic Society.
The evening will include an Improv Sweetheart Mystery Show by Portal Players, followed by dancing to the music of Denis Levasseur and Dennis Olsen, members of Portal Players. 70% of the proceeds of this event are going to Portal Players.
Tickets are available at The Capitol Theatre during regular box office hours, and at Echo Centre, Scotiabank and Rollin Art Centre.
It’ll be a fun night out, and tickets are only $35 per person, including a great meal catered by Dave’s Catering. The evening also features a silent auction, 50/50 draw and live auction items. This is a fantastic opportunity for PPDS to raise much needed funds for our 75th Anniversary renovations.
