The event is the sixth and final market of the 2013 season, the second held at the Hyde Creek location.

Clarkson back at theatre

Courtenay-based performance artist and teacher Joey Clarkson returns to Gate House Community Theatre Saturday to lead a “Gotta Sing, Gotta Dance” workshop for interested performers 13-over.

From noon to 5 p.m. Clarkson will work with students on song and dance routines, then return to the theatre at 7 p.m. to give them a chance to perform what they’ve learned before a live audience.

“This is going to be a blast,” said Clarkson, who hosted a similar workshop and performance at the theatre this summer. “You don’t have to have any experience at all, the point is to get out there and give it a try.”

To sign up or for more info, call 250-334-2208 or email joeyclarksonmusicaltheatre@gmail.com.

Anyone interested in performing in the open mic may arrive before 7 p.m. to sign up at the theatre.
