Two young Agassiz actors are being featured in the Chilliwack School of Performing Arts’ upcoming Spring Theatre Festival.

Kate Gadsby-Haner and Katie Schram have been busy in the school’s Intermediate Acting Program. The result is a play called The Reluctant Dragon, and is being directed by Stefanie Munshaw. Gadsby-Haner has the role of the dragon, while Schram was cast as “the rude kid.”

The show will be presented next week at the Chilliwack Victory Church in the festival, which runs from Monday, May 27 to June 1. Over the course of the week, it will feature more than 90 performances from students ages 7 to 18.
