Nechako Valley Secondary presents: fine arts showdown between video, art, theatre



Nechako Valley Secondary’s annual fine art show on Jan. 21 began with a display of artwork in various themes and medium in the school’s fine arts wing.

A series of videos produced by media art students then followed in the Integris Community Theatre, including news broadcasts, stop motion animation, music videos, as well as collaborations with theatre performance classes.

The arts evening finished with A Super Groovy Night’s Dream presented by the school’s Theatre Performance 11-12 class and directed by drama teacher Erin Baker.

Written by playwright Charlie Lovett, the adaption of William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream is set in a secondary school called East High, with characters comprised of jocks, hippies, students from drama and science/math clubs, as well as faculty.
