The Kootenay Festival of the Arts is returning to centre stage in Trail for 10 days this spring.

The Kootenay Festival of the Arts is returning to centre stage in Trail for 10 days this spring.

From April 6-18, the festival offers students of artistic disciplines the opportunity to perform in a theatrical environment and receive constructive critique from established professionals.

The 81-year tradition that showcases local talent in the performing arts was shelved two years ago due to lack of volunteers.

While there are nine people on board to help first time co-chairs Nicole Zimmer and Audrey Gerein revive the event, more hands are need to help run the day-to-day duties that are mostly scheduled in downtown Trail’s Charles Bailey Theatre.

No experience is necessary to volunteer. For information and to sign up, call Zimmer at 362.9635.
