‘Flower Power’ provides family fun in many ways

0

For many of those who participate in productions of the Canyon Lake Community Theatre and Performing Arts Association, plays and musicals are a family affair – especially the all-kids productions directed each summer by Ilene Moore.

For example, with three of her grandchildren in last week’s production of “Flower Power,” and another grandchild helping with the lighting, what were Marga Kidd and her daughter, Lauren Escobar, to do but volunteer their time in whatever ways they were needed. Many other parents and siblings did the same.

There was a good turnout all weekend to see the show and, according to photographer Bobbie Starr Pigeon, whose daughter Taylor played one of the lead roles, “Everyone loved it! Ole McDonald and Grandma McDonald stole the show!”

Following is the cast list. A few of the roles were double cast; for example, Krista McClean and Taylor Pigeon switched off playing Starpetal and Tiger Lily on alternate days.
