Several folks from our community enjoyed one or more of the performances of “Shrek —The Musical” in Hanna with the final performance on Saturday evening. The Stage Hanna production featured fantastic local talent delivered with awesome humour. There were many connections to the Endiang — Byemoor area in the cast.
The Endmoor cast connections included Marty Brooker and Terri Simpson; Katie and Jorgie Campbell — Lyle and Shannon Knowles’ daughter and granddaughter; Nadine and Mareena Hein — Gordie and Roxy Gallagher’s daughter and granddaughter; Trina and Quinn Peters — Gary and Dolores Pearson’s daughter and granddaughter; Heather and Grace Scheler — Ron and Marguerite Brown’s daughter and granddaughter and Ally Smyth — former Byemoor student and daughter of Ben and Tania Smyth.
Kudos to the entire cast and production crew on a first-class performance, it was very entertaining and a pleasure to see so much talent in a small town.
Two local floor curling teams participated in the bonspiel in Castor last Monday. The teams included Dave Sisley, Mickey Tucker, Carol Stulberg and Helen Gutsche as well as Herb Gutsche, Carol Sisley, Irene Brooker and Eva Nielsen.
