Snowman contest with heart

Regardless of snow or no snow in Whistler Village, the Union of B.C. Performers is presenting the second annual Snowman Fund at the Whistler Film Festival, Saturday, Dec. 3 at 1 p.m. in Whistler Village – exact location yet to be announced.

Four teams of snow builders will build snowmen or dress people as snowman (depending on the weather) to raise funds for the Heart and Stroke Foundation of B.C. and the Yukon.

Last year, the group raised more than $3,500 for the cause. This year, the group aims to raise a lofty $10,000.

The B.C. branch of ACTRA (Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists) will be collecting donations to the foundation at the film festival. Donations can also be mailed to UBCP, #300 — 856 Homer Street, Vancouver, B.C., V6B 2W5 until Dec. 31. Tax receipts can be issued.

Christmas concert

Get into the Christmas spirit with the Sea to Sky Singers Christmas Memories Saturday, Dec. 3 at 7:30 p.m. at the Squamish Baptist Church.

The Sea to Sky singing troupe, under the musical direction of Veronica McPhee, will orchestrate the merry evening of favourite carols and a traditional sing-along. Highlights this year include three guest soloists in Marc-Antoine Charpentier’s Song of the Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ as well as a small string ensemble.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for seniors and students. Advance tickets are available at Billie’s Bouquet, Highland Video and Mostly Books.

Talent call

From the woman who brought Whistler the debaucherous Absolutely Fabulous productions, couture advice to village strollers as part of the Fashion Police and debuted in this year’s pantomime as the southern belle crocodile, the hilarious Michelle Bush is finally getting her act together – and opening an entertainment business called Porta Potties.

"Singing telegrams, specialized parties, murder mysteries, hiring your own personal fan club or paparazzi, we are going to do a bit of everything," Bush said. "I am going to need artistic theatre types or comedians or anyone that can do something unusual. I want to create a database of performing artists who want to get involved."
