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 Aug. 1.

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.
