FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

November 21, 2019

DAWSON CREEK, BC — The Dawson Creek Choral Society’s Musical Theatre Program, with the help of Longhorn Oilfield Services, is hosting a Pay-It-Forward exclusive matinee performance of their upcoming musical production. Longhorn has sponsored an entirely free matinee of the DCCS’s Elf the Musical JR. on Friday, December 6, 2019, at 1:00 PM at the Calvin Kruk Centre Theatre.

This Pay-It-Forward Performance is a chance for Longhorn Oilfield Services and the Dawson Creek Choral Society to bring music, theatre and magic to those individuals who might otherwise not get a chance to experience this musical event. Tickets are entirely free for up to 180 nominees.

Nominations are open for anyone who is in need of something extra this Christmas season, who has gone above and beyond in the community this year, who’s never seen a musical before, who might otherwise not be able to afford tickets to Elf the Musical JR, or who has simply made yours or someone else’s day a little bit better this holiday season. You can nominate your group, family, or individual at: https://dcchoralsociety.org/elf-the-musical/pay-it-forward/

Elf the Musical JR. is the Choral Society’s 5th major musical production. Program Director, Randi Jo Torgrimson felt that “a Christmas Production would be a perfect time to provide an opportunity for those who might otherwise not have it, to attend the performance and see what these amazing kids can do.”  As the DCCS Musical Theatre program has grown, it has been able to increasingly reach more of the community and region. “Last year, we had a princess for a show, and this year, we want to reach out to more people. 180 people, to be exact,” Torgrimson adds. “So we are asking you to help us fill the seats with those who would love this production as much as we do, for those who want to laugh and experience the joy of the holiday season in the best way we know how to provide it: musical entertainment.”

Tickets for all other Elf the Musical JR. performances at Pop-Up Box Office events around town up until December 6th. Find out where the Box Office is by visiting https://dcchoralsociety.org/2019-20/

Dawson Creek Arts Fund 2016-17

Here at DCCS we’re thrilled to be helping in a new grassroots initiative to provide funding for children and youth to participate in local arts programs. 

“With the generous financial support of the Child and Youth Mental Health and Substance Use (CYMHSU) Collaborative Local Action Team and the efforts of some members of this fabulous community of Dawson Creek we are happy to announce the launch of the Dawson Creek Arts Fund! The fund was put in place to help children, youth and young adults access programs in the arts that would otherwise be unavailable to them due to financial barriers.  It will function along the same lines as KidSport and Jumpstart and will be administered by the Arts Fund committee. Fund guidelines, application criteria and the application form are attached.” (Angela Reay – Dawson Creek Arts Fund Committee)

You can find the application form here, or in person at the select drop-off locations (Calvin Kruk Centre for the Arts, Dawson Creek Art Gallery, or Northern Lights College. 

Many thanks to the Child and Youth  Mental Health and Substance Use Action Team for your vision and great initiative in Dawson Creek.
