Announcing Lakes District Arts Council’s
2022/2023 Performing Arts Season

Axis Theatre’s live production of Frog Belly Rat Bone is coming to Burns Lake in February 2024. LDAC will present a free show on Family Day, and shows at Decker Lake and William Konkin Elementary Schools the next day.

The MET: Live in HD broadcasts

The Arts Council will co-present five Met Opera broadcasts in winter/spring 2024. The LDAC funds The Beacon Theatre’s operating costs for the broadcasts. A small but loyal audience comes from as far away as Fraser Lake and Smithers to enjoy The Met operas.

Children’s and Youth Choirs
The LDAC is supporting a Children’s Choir for kids from four years old to Grade 5 that formed in September 2023. The Arts Council hopes a Youth Choir, for upper elementary and high school students,
will take off in 2024.

LDAC Grade Twelve Scholarship

LDAC awards an annual scholarship to a Grade Twelve graduate. Preference is given to a graduate or graduates going on the post-secondary training in the arts.

Canada Day at Spirit Square
The Arts Council partners with The Village of Burns Lake to present the annual Canada Day celebrations at Spirit Square

Summer Arts and Crafts Workshops The LDAC will sponsor summer arts and crafts workshops again in 2024, taught by local artists and craftspersons.

The Kerplunks were here in 2012 and again during the wildfires of 2018. They return to perform in local elementary schools, and at the 2024 Fall Fair Children’s Festival.
