Anything theatric is welcome – from singers for a singing telegram, line dance instructors for parities or even balloon artists for the kids.

"The more I can pitch to people – I’ve got a guy that can stand on his head and drink beer – the more work I can find. I need dancers, singers, comedians, circus performers, everything," she said.

Bush is a veteran of the Whistler theatre community. Among her many credits, she facilitated entertainment and group building events for corporate groups, hosted interactive theatre such as Maxine and Blaire’s High School Reunion, performed in the play production of Faulty Towers, developed characters for Tourism Whistler’s summer street entertainment program and is a regular face around Whistler parties – or at least her duffel bag is, stuffed with wigs, boas, blow-up guitars and everything else under the sun.

Filmmakers/photographers needed

Filmmakers and photographers are still needed for Swift Rock Production’s ARTdrenaline showcase, a multi-media/multi-disciplinary art-stravaganza of film, writing, visual arts and photography, dance and acting, to be showcased Dec. 16 and 17 at Millennium Place.

Performance and competition unite for a unique evening of local talent centred on this year’s theme of Fearless – In life/sport/love/art.

For the photography category, two pieces of new work must be submitted by Dec. 8, representing the photographer’s take on the theme.

Film submissions must be three to 10 minutes long, submitted to Swift Rock by Dec. 10. Broadcast regulations apply.
