The Ark Comes To Edmonton

EDMONTON, ALBERTA, CANADA -- Young Artists for the Arts is at it again. Last August, the local youth organisation which promotes local theatre productions by young people produced a comedy called "One Mark Two Many" as a wrap-up to the 1999-2000 season.

Though the organisation isn't strictly LDS, many Latter-day Saint youth and young married couples perform in the various productions. In an early LDSCaNews article, Jennifer Dorward, a member of YAFTA assured that each performance by YAFTA meets the standards laid out in the "For the Strength of Youth" pamphlet, a booklet of standards and guidelines directed at LDS youth.

Nearly a year later, YAFTA is putting on yet another production. "The Ark," a popular eight-person musical adventure written by Heber City, UT-based Michael McLean, is based on the biblical story of Noah and his family. It contains not only biblical themes but contemporary ones as well, as this father tries to focus his family in a new direction.

The Ark has already been formed twice in Cardston, including it's world premiere in 1999.

The Edmonton production will be at the Stanley A. Milner Library Theatre. Afternoon performances will be held at 3:30 p.m. on May 12 & 26. Evening performances will be held at 7:30 p.m. on May 9-12, 16-18 &23-26.

Tickets, which are 12$ in advance or 15$ at the door, are available by contacting Generations at 413-0392, Campus Copy Centre at 439-4252 or any cast member.
