ROCK supporting THEATRE

Pipestone Flyer

The performing arts find their support and loyal following with people of all ages, of all circumstances…

    This is the case with the WETASKIWIN THEATRE SOCIETY. It is a dynamic group that nearly ten years ago succeeded in purchasing a building from the City. 

    To contribute to its building fund, renovating mostly, a nearby rock band has made a commitment to perform in that city with the funds raised by ticket sales to go directly into the fund. THE ABLE KIND, a rock band based out of Edmonton, will be the headliners. One of its members, a keen promoter of the performing Arts is Shawn Roth, a 30-something musician who was raised in Leduc County near Millet, and was an Air Cadet in Leduc for several years. Son of Eldon and Pat Roth who still reside near Millet, two long-time Wetaskiwin Theatre Society members, Shawn is now a family man (with two cute kids!), a busy worker and an avid musician who likes to support worthy causes.

    So, on SATURDAY JUNE 8 at 7pm, Wetaskiwin and regional rock fans can take in a fun concert, with the White Pongo Band opening, and rejoice not only in the mixed rock being performed by two talented bands, but in knowing that they are supporting the endeavors of another group – of a different artistic ‘genre’.

    Waterworks Players, the other name of the Wetaskiwin Theatre Society, is happy to have such youthful enthusiasm and loyal devotion to help in their renovation plans… You can purchase tickets from Warren’s Music in Wetaskiwin, or contact Shawn Roth directly at 780-660-8478. See you at the Concert, as the Pipestone Flyer loves to support the performing Arts!
