34th Annual Labrador Creative Arts Festival

Students from along the coast of Labrador are in Goose Bay this week.

It’s the 34th Annual Labrador Creative Arts Festival.

Martha Macdonald is the Chair of the Festival Committee.

She says this year the Festival is late.

Students were prohibited from traveling in November due to the swine flu pandemic.

The Creative Arts Festival and the Regional High School Drama Festival are taking place at the same time this year.

Martha Macdonald says it will be a ‘super’ festival.

The Festival kicked off last night with a play by the students of Our Lady Queen of Peace in Goose Bay.

Next was a play from the students of Amos Comenius Memorial School in Hopedale.

ACMS performed a play called ‘Going, Going, Not Gone’.

The play was about people being stuck in airports on weather-hold.

The audience could relate.

Most of them have been through it.

Most of the drama groups are not in Goose Bay yet.

Students will be adjudicated by Tim Borlase on their acting skills.

We will have another update from Macdonald about the Festivals next week, so keep tuning into AtjiKangitut .
