Dinner theatre raises $4,500: All of Shawville society turned out for the gala dinner and opening night performance of Pontiac Protestant High School’s production of The Music Man last Tuesday night.
The pre-play dinner was a sold-out affair, raising $4,500 to be divided equally between PPHS student activities and the solarium fund at Pontiac Community Hospital.
During dinner, music from the play was performed by Connie Gray on piano, Tom Alexander on flute and Penny Frobel on vocals.
Director Joan Conrod’s casting was inspired. Rhonda Hodgins and Andrew Smith played the leads with assurance and style. Several of the supporting actors, Lindsay Kent, Andrew Woolsey, Robert McMunn and Greg Graham, gave their parts a skilled and spirited treatment.
McDowell keeps regional plaque: On April 2, Laura Wills, a grade 5 student at Dr. S.E. McDowell Elementary School in Shawville took first place in the regional public speaking competition held by the West Quebec School Board at Chelsea Elementary School.
This marks the second year in a row that a McDowell student has taken this honour, Aaron Perry having won first place last year.
