Spotlight will dim at season’s end as Port Theatre considers changes BY NIOMI PEARSON THE NEWS BULLETIN

The Port Theatre’s signature series is being taken out of the spotlight at the end of the 2012-13 season.

General manager Bruce Halliday confirmed that following the lineup of performances between now and the end of April, the Spotlight Series will be suspended.

“The board of directors and myself feel that this is a prudent move from an artistic and business perspective at this time,” Halliday said. Due to changes

within the industry, the Port Theatre board is developing a new business plan that will aim to address both artistic and financial needs for the future, Halliday said.

“Some of the direction is still being clarified,” he said. He added that the Port Theatre Society will still continue to present shows in the foreseeable future.

The Spotlight Series is a series of shows varying from Canadian music to dance, and live theatre. It is funded partly by the Department of Canadian Heritage. As such, TELUS STORE OR AUTHORIZED DEALER

the shows offer artistic diversity – culturally, geographically and ethnically. “The whole mandate of the series is to focus on shows that would not come to Nanaimo if we were not presenting,” Halliday said. “We hire the artist, we guarantee the artist fee, and all the associated costs, and we then sell tickets to offset costs.” The Spotlight Series season is still in full swing, with the next event, the Classical Coffee Concert Series with pianist Sarah Hagen taking place Feb. 5. Following that, on Feb. 9, will be Gravity of Centre, a fusion of contemporary dance and hip hop, by RubberbanDance Group.

Trust account set up to help van fire victim

A camper van fire that left a woman homeless is drawing compassion from the community. Victoria Szado moved to Nanaimo looking for work. She was here five weeks, liv-

ing in her 1974 Ford Econoline camper van to save money. Everything she owned went up in flames when the vehicle caught fire Dec. 19. Retired teacher Margaret Litch has set up a trust

account for Szado that people can donate to. “She’s living in the van to save money while she looks for work and everything is lost,” Litch said. “What she wants, of course, is a job. I’m

thinking perhaps with this publicity someone may come forward to offer her a job.” Anyone wanting to donate can do so at any Coastal Community Credit Union branch, to account No. 747775.

Fire damage was minimal, contained to the stove and cupboards, said Ennis Mond, Nanaimo Fire

Rescue fire prevention officer, but heavy smoke spread through t h e s u i t e, at 7 9 5 Brechin Rd. “Every door was open, so every room was contaminated,� Mond said. There were no work-

that half of the duplex anymore,� Mond said. “There was a lot of smoke damage.� All of the tenants affected by the blaze were provided with or found temporary living arrangements. photos@nanaimobulletin.com

IN MEMORIAM

IN MEMORY OF

EDUCATION/TRADE SCHOOLS

Dad, So much has happened in the twenty years you’ve been gone that it would be difficult to know where to begin, so many tragedies and triumphs, good times and bad for all those you left behind, and all without your understanding ear to take counsel from, joke with or argue against. But is that really true? In important ways you’re still so present in the lives of the many people whose lives you touched that it’s like no time has passed at all. I bet there isn’t a day goes by when someone, somewhere, doesn’t finish a good meal, read a good book, or come up against some problem and turn to you in their mind and say something like “Tony, what would you do with this busted lawnmower?” or “Geez Dad you would have enjoyed this – a real NAAFI gorge!” I often find myself defending movies you never lived to see, music you never heard, carrying on one of the many conversations that keep you alive in our minds and close to our hearts forever.
