UNBC Drama Club Presents: Peter Pan and Wendy

Posted by on Apr 3, 2017 in Arts, Culture | 0 comments

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. Starring: Ferris Vasko as Peter Pan Keone Gourlay as Wendy Tyree Corfe as John Emily Brown as Michael Adaeze Obeta as Mrs....

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...

2017 Women’s Memorial March

Posted by on Mar 28, 2017 in Culture | 0 comments

Sam Wall | News Editor Tuesday, February 14th was a chilly day, with the sun easing towards the horizon by the 4pm start time for the Women’s Memorial March. The March occurs every year on Valentine’s Day to remember and seek justice for missing and murdered Indigenous women. This event is of particular importance in northern communities, as highway 16, also known as the Highway of Tears, runs through the dense forest where many Indigenous women have gone missing or been found murdered. This year, about 100 people were in attendance to pay their respects, and share their time with various speakers at the Courthouse. The event culminated in performances at the Prince George Native Friendship Centre, after a march from the Courthouse. The event began with an opening prayer and welcome to the Lheidli T’enneh territory by Darlene...

Starting The Conversation On Sexual Assault

Posted by on Mar 28, 2017 in Culture | 0 comments

Ellen Muggorsky | Guest Contributor When I was sexually assaulted, I was not asking for it. When I was sexually assaulted for the first, second and third time, I was not asking for it. I would like to share this personal account with you, not to scare you or to shock you, but in an honest attempt to dispel stereotypes. I wish not to instill fear but bring thoughtful perspective to a thoughtless crime. I would like to emphasize the word crime. See, despite the fact that 1 in 3 women are sexually assaulted, some still lack the understanding of a few basic constructs so let me lay this down to you. According to the criminal code of Canada, consent is the voluntary agreement to engage in sexual activity. Consent should be a voluntary, sober, enthusiastic, informed, mutual, honest...

Dungeons & Dragons

Posted by on Mar 28, 2017 in Culture | 0 comments

Tierney Watkinson | Team Member Wounded and weary, the adventurers watched as the dragon Venomfang coiled and bared his fangs in a menacing grin, preparing to attack. His scales, glistening poison green, were stained with globules of shocking red blood that oozed from wounds in Venomfang’s flesh, wounds that were slowly beginning to take their toll. Venomfang looked to the sky, where the gaping hole in the crumbling tower ceiling loomed far overhead. His body tensed- -he unfurled his wings slightly. The group of travelers knew in that instant that Venomfang was going to try to flee. Penny, a powerful wizard, cried out, “I can stop the dragon from escaping!” “But we might fail,” Sir Villanueva grunted as struggled to stand, still reeling from the dragon’s last blow. His torso was covered in burns. The dragon’s acidic poison attack...

Logan: A Review

Posted by on Mar 28, 2017 in Culture | 0 comments

Tierney Watkinson | Team Member No spoilers, I promise. Full disclosure, while I have seen all of the X-Men movies except for the most recent (which directly preceded Logan), I have yet to read the comics. While (or perhaps because) I am aware of the different timelines within the X-Men Universe I feel as though I am definitely missing chunks of content. That being said, Logan could be enjoyed even without watching all of the prequels first. Watching Logan with the limited background knowledge I may have, I absolutely loved the film. I cried. Multiple times. Granted, it had been a long day and I was in such a mood that during a certain scene of the movie which involved horses, I nearly lost my composure completely. I’m just relieved that my group of movie-watching friends and I were at...
