FarmALot, a cabaret celebrating the 100th anniversary of the McBride Farmer’s Institute with a comedic look at food and farming in a “genetically altered environment.”
Take your standard Arthurian legend, add one mythological conglomerate called “The High Commissioning God-like Corporation of Monstranto,” throw in a Horn of Plenty, music, a pinch of Burlesque and lot of whimsy and it all adds up to “FarmALot.”
This is Wishbone Theatre’s fifth annual cabaret and is sponsored by the Robson Valley Arts and Culture Society. Written by Sharon Stearns in collaboration with The Robson Valley Theatre Collective, it features local artists and musicians: Bob Thompson, Monica Zeiper, Shara Gustafson, Kerry McNaughton, Donalda Beeson, Harold Edwards, Sarah McCrae and Sharon Stearns. Local artist Sheilagh Foster is the scenic designer and painter with assistant scenic painter Carla Trask. Pam Moul heads up the production team with lots of volunteer support. The Gigglin Grizzly Pub will be serving a special “FarmALot” harvest menu on opening night October 23rd. Food and drinks will be served throughout the evening cabaret. Get your tickets early- the show had sold out crowds last year!
