Cake and Drama Too

GKN Drama Club students are hosting a cake auction on Sunday, Dec. 4.

GKN Drama Club students will auction cakes donated by local bakers on Sunday.

Drama Club students from GidGalang Kuuyas Naay are launching a sweet idea.

On Sunday afternoon, the students will host their first cake auction — tables of 10 people will bid on cakes donated by local bakers.

Once everyone has a slice, the audience can have their cake while watching the student-led Drama Club put on improv skits and other entertainment. The baker whose cake sells for the highest price will also win a prize.

All the proceeds from the cake auction will help send the Drama Club to perform at the upcoming Northwest Zone Drama Festival in Terrace.

GKN students will be staging ‘Look Me in the Eye,’ a one-act play by Lindsay Price described as a haunting, futuristic dystopia.

With a cast and crew of 18, ‘Look Me in the Eye’ is directed by student Issy Romas and assistant director Jacey Pollard. Shaunnay Edgars is the production manager.

The cake auction runs from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday at the high school. For more info about the cake auction, contact Drama Club advisors Tom Kertes (tkertes@sd50.bc.ca) or Amanda Buchan.
