Posted by on Jul 19, 2017 in Arts, Culture, News | 0 comments

Tierney Watkinson | News Director   On July 8, Prince George showed its Pride in full colour in the Veteran’s Plaza in front of City Hall.   The events of the 20th Annual Pride Celebration began at 10am and went into full swing after the 11am parade and continued through to 3pm.   Performers and volunteers garbed in brilliant colours proudly walked the parade route, smiling and waving and often handing out candy and free hugs. Escorted by a Police cruiser, The Prince George Pride Society led the parade. Hundreds of people followed behind, wearing or carrying rainbow flags, twirling rainbow parasols, or sporting face paints in varying colours. Wonder Woman made an appearance; as did Deadpool, wearing a sexy biker outfit and cheerfully taking selfies with anyone who asked. Multiple floats prepared by groups and businesses from throughout...

Sam Wall | Editor In Chief   This past Monday, the call was put out for speakers for TEDxUNBC.

Tierney Watkinson | Team Member   Join the UNBC Drama Club as they delve into the world of Neverland in their upcoming show, Peter Pan and Wendy! If you, like me, love JM Barrie’s original story then you do not want to miss this Doug Rand stage adaptation. Be prepared to laugh along with this comedy adventure as Wendy and her little brothers follow the whimsical Peter into Neverland. Let the extremely talented UNBC Drama Club transport you into this beloved world of pirates, fairies, and Lost Boys. The set pieces, which I have caught glimpses of in the Clubs Room, are truly impressive and beautiful. The production, directed by Jake Goertz, will be well worth watching.

UNBC Musicals: Another Year

Posted by on Mar 29, 2017 in Arts, Culture, UNBC, Volume 23 | 0 comments

Tierney Watkinson | Team Member   Another year has come and gone for UNBC’s Musical Productions group. As I write this, we have four more shows to perform. Last week, we had a few glitches with the set during our first show but the musical has really come together. This week of shows will be our best yet. For this article, painfully aware that I am still neglecting to mention a number of members who also worked tirelessly to make these shows a reality, I wanted to give shout-outs to the Musical Production Club’s Technical Crew. To Carmen Campbell, who played piano for the AVPS show and who has been a member of the club since the very beginning. She has starred as a crazed fan in Dr Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, Buffy the Vampire Slayer herself in the club’s...

Sarah Green| Contributor The air is crisp As he walks through the clearing. It’s too late. No one can stop him. His strides show purpose. He moves towards the group Standing clustered around the fire. A few faces turn As he walks towards the smallest figure. She stands slightly apart. Obviously waiting for him. He draws a breath. This is it. When she sees him, Her amber eyes light up. For a moment, He falters. Disarmed by her beauty. But it’s too late to change his mind. He takes a step forward, Clears his throat, And changes his life...
