Dicksons produce musical based on The Jungle Book

Musical couple Reg and Lynne Dickson of Davis Bay say they have to make up for lost time.

Musical couple Reg and Lynne Dickson of Davis Bay say they have to make up for lost time. It's true they've had a brief hiatus from their usual hectic performance schedule of previous years, but they found time last December to appear on the Elves Club Telethon and to teach music to children at their home studio.In addition, Lynne turned author last summer with the publication of her children's book, Kate's Ice Cream. Their forthcoming season of special events puts them back in the business. On Feb. 13 and 14, they'll be singing love songs at Lord Jim's Resort in Halfmoon Bay. Then on Saturday, Feb. 21, they'll be returning to their former schedule of two coffee houses a year by hosting a coffee house at the Seaside Centre in Sechelt, featuring the Music Makers adult choir, soloists, Angie McCauley and friends, and the Blind Date jazz quartet. Blind Date is a fairly new project for the Dicksons. It combines the smooth voices of Reg and Lynne with Wendy Hibberd and Colin Mailey-Smith in a jazz quartet. But the big production number of this year will be the staging of the musical The Jungle Book, featuring 45 kids from the various Music Makers' choirs. The junior monkeys, elephants and wolves will help the foundling hero, Mowgli, of the famous Rudyard Kipling story, learn the ways of the jungle. Lynne Dickson produces, and Tracy Lloyd directs. These Dickson musical productions sell out very quickly. The two performances are on Sunday, March 7, at 1:30 and 4:30 p.m. at St John's United Church in Davis Bay. Tickets are $10 and will be available at Talewind Books in Sechelt or through the Music-Makers. For event information, visit their website at
