Canada is for Kids show at Dave Dunnet theatre Friday

Fundraiser supports St. Joseph School and an organic farming project in South Africa

Celebrate Canada and help children both at home and abroad at a community concert this Friday.

Oak Bay High’s Dave Dunnet Community Theatre hosts Saanich singer-songwriter Michael Mitchell for his family-friendly Canada is for Kids fundraising concert April 8.

Celebrating Canada through songs and stories, the concert supports both the Masithuthukisane organic farming project in Mariannhill, South Africa to help feed the poor, and St. Joseph School’s parent auxiliary group, helping provide resources such as library books, athletic equipment, recreation programs and field trips.

Mitchell is a former songwriter and recording artist for Sesame Street and co-host of the CTV children’s program Storytime.

Jo-Ann Roberts will MC Friday’s performance, which will also feature a guest appearance by St. Joseph’s Grade 3 student singers.

Tickets – $20 for adults and $10 for youth age 18 and younger – are available at St. Joseph the Worker Church or St. Joseph School offices, 785 and 758 Burnside Rd. West and online at
