What fools these mortals be 

Have you always wanted to be a character from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream? The Gibsons Public Library has issued a call for community readers to participate in a live reading of an abridged script of the 425-year-old play. Everyone will be “on book” reading from the script—no memorization required. 

Rehearsals will be on June 18 and 25. The live performance will take place on Sunday, June 26, in the bandshell tent in Winegarden Park. 

Ages eight through 108 are welcome! Interested readers should call or email Lise Krepps at the Gibsons Public Library: LKreps@gibsons.bclibrary.ca. Indicate if you prefer a particular character and reply by June 7.  

Fibre Works exhibition 

Fibre Works Studio and Gallery is celebrating sylvan spirituality with an exhibition of works by Barbara DeMott, Randi Gurholt-Seary and Pia Sillem through June 18. 

The three artists who explore different mediums have joined together to present images and objects that celebrate how the forest is woven into our lives. 

The “Spirit of the Forest” show explores inspiration, emotions and intense gratitude for the beauty, tangible gifts and spiritual sustenance the forest provides.  

Fibre Works is located in Madeira Park and is open Thursday to Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. More information is available at fibreworksgallery.com.

The free, public performance begins in the Public Market’s atrium at 2:30 p.m.
