Classics Theatre Colbalt will present a collection of songs
that recall the life and times of Canadian hard rock miners and
their families at St. Andrew's Place in Sudbury July 31 and
Songs in a Miner Key features Northern Ontario mining songs
performed by northerners Dan Thomson and Elizabeth Sipos, as
well as the classic Charlie Chaplin silent film Gold Rush
accompanied by Robert Hall, chair of the department of music at
Laurentian University, on piano.
Songs in the show will include The Cobalt Song, The Mucker's
Lament and Joe Hill.
Thomson worked at the Kidd Creek Mine in Timmins before
studying music and theatre at Laurentian University. He is a
baritone and his training included the classics but now he has
returned home to his true musical heritage.
Sipos is a graduate of Lo Ellen Park Secondary School and
holds a bachelor of arts in music from Laurentian. She is well
known in Sudbury for her mezzo-soprano voice.
Tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for seniors and free for children 12 and younger. They are available at Black Cat Too, at the door, or by phoning 698-1212. Show time will be 7:30 pm.
