PAST CREATIONS

IN CREATION

Country West 

a new review musical

created by Kaitlyn Semple

Dates TBA

In the late 1980s, Regina was home to a National

Country TV Show!  It was called Country West,

and featured a house band of incredible local musicians.  

It was a HUGE SUCCESS STORY for this small town tv

station.  Everyone was vying for one of these National Spots, and

Regina beat all odds to book it!!

At the time, young Ms Kd Lang was just starting out, and

Steve Glassman, the producer, had to convince the 

higher ups that she'd be a good choice.  She LIT UP 

THE STAGE with her incredible energy and theatrical

performance style.  She went on to world wide stardom,

but left an impression on the local artists she worked with.

Stay tuned for more info on creation of this exciting

project!

L-R: Joan Speirs, Kd Lang, and Roberta Nichol

Front Row L-R: Jack Semple, Roy, Bob Evans, Roberta Nichol, Joan Speirs,

Larry McCormick, Cal Harle.   Back Row: Rob Bryanton
