Light Up the Dark! An Arts Education Celebration at Confederation Centre is a variety concert in celebration of emerging artists, as well as the winter solstice: the end of the year and the return of the sun.

Directed by local actor and educator Jody Racicot, Light Up the Dark! takes place December 14 in Homburg Theatre. Racicot has been an instructor with the Centre-partnered Holland College School of Performing Arts (SoPA) since the program’s inception, has directed the school’s year-end showcases and toured children’s shows to Island schools.

Light Up the Dark! will include approximately 75 performers, including students from the SoPA dance and theatre programs; the SoPA school show choir, ‘the SoPA-tones’; and SoPA’s Celtic Music Ensemble. Under the direction of Julie Pellisier-Lush, local troupe, the Mi’kmaq Heritage Actors will perform a selection of winter tales based on traditional Mi’kmaq legends. Other participants include select classes from dance umbrella.

The celebration will also feature the work of 15 students from Confederation Centre’s visual arts stream, whose work will be exhibited in Memorial Hall prior to show-time. These students are participating in a partnership project with PEI Association of Newcomers to Canada, led by Kate Sharpley, visual arts educator with the Art Gallery.

Other creative team members include Hannah O’Donnell as Music Director; Morgan Saulnier as piano accompanist; Taryn Kristalovich and Kylie Fudge-Jensen as choreographers, and Jeana MacIsaac as stage manager. With the dance umbrella pieces Julia Sauve is choreographer for the Dance for the Health of It class, while Wanda Naylor and Sandy Zinck are Choreographer and Vocal Director for the Senior Musical Theatre Class, respectively.
