‘Duvall Cultural & Performing Arts Center’ entering new phase
Duvall Foundation for the Arts (DFA) continues its work on the Duvall Cultural & Performing Arts Center near the location of the old historic Thayer Barn. Creating a physical indoor space for the arts and events has been a long held dream. This is a project DFA has undertaken for the long term benefit of the community. Because this is such a big endeavor, the project is being done in steps as DFA continues to raise money for the completion of the facility.
Rick Heslinga, 16, a junior at Cedarcrest High School, made his fifth trip to World Dairy Expo in Madison, Wisconsin, in September. Rick, with a Canadian friend, took a trailer full of Brown Swiss heifers to show at Expo. Rick‘s Brown Swiss “Duvall” had won the junior and open show at the Washington State Fair in Puyallup so expectations were high. He also showed his Brown Swiss “Kaylee.” Both heifers ended in the middle of the class. For Rick, it was a great week of learning new techniques and seeing old friends and making new ones.
Charles Dickens’ beloved classic, A Christmas Carol, comes to vibrant life in Master Chorus Eastside’s enchanting and poignant synthesis of Christmas carols and readers theater, A “Choral” Christmas Carol. Holiday carols intertwine with dramatic readings drawn directly from this timeless story of redemption and joy in a production that is sure to touch your heart with the true spirit of Christmas. Actor David Ketter stars as the Narrator, and Village Theater veteran John Deveney (Damn Yankees, The Odd Couple, Meet Me in St. Louis) appears as Scrooge, with smaller roles, such as the Cratchit family, played by MCE members. “It’s amazing how well the story and the carols fit together. It’s as if they were made for one another,” says artistic director and conductor Dr. Linda Gingrich. “And we feel especially fortunate to have David Ketter and John Deveney in the starring roles. They bring a sparkle to this production that has inspired us all. This will be an unforgettable musical and dramatic experience.”
