Artstrek Memory: “1988 Like-Minded” – Angela

I currently live in Grande Prairie, Alberta and I teach English, Film Studies and Drama to some ragamuffin high school students at Charles Spencer High School. I attended Artstrek in 1988 and loved it so much that I went back in 1990 to study “Romeo and Juliet” as well as “West Side Story.” I’d love for people to know that having the opportunity to meet others who love Drama as much as you do can be life-affirming. Artstrek allowed me to be my true self and I was able to throw my whole heart and soul into something that I had only stifled so far. I tell my Drama students every year about this program in the hopes that one day one of them will go and come back changed like I did.

Artstrek Memory: “2011” – Catriona

This year will be my fourth year attending Artstrek (YES!!) I have gone to You Can’t Take it With You, Romeo and Juliet, and finally Fiddler on the Roof and soon Unity. I want people to know that I was one so shy that I would never let a stranger even shake my hand let alone hug me, now I will basically hug anyone. I literally get bribed with hugs now.
