Rarely seen photos of the way logging life was included in multimedia show of song and dance
From July 2 to Aug. 28, Victoria’s Royal BC Museum, in association with The Other Guys Theatre Company, will present an original theatre production celebrating the golden age of logging in British Columbia.
Good Timber: Songs and Stories of the Western Logger is a musical revue set against a multimedia backdrop of rarely-seen imagery of B.C.’s old-time logging history.
Inspired by Rhymes of the Western Logger, a compilation of logging camp poetry by Robert E. Swanson, Good Timber is an entertaining romp through a time when loggers climbed trees and often referred to themselves as the Bull of the Woods. The 90-minute performance will be presented nightly, Monday through Saturday, at 8 p.m. in the Royal BC Museum’s Main Hall.
Tickets for Good Time: Songs and Stories of the Western Logger begin at $15 and are available online at www.otherguystheatre.caor in person at the Royal BC Museum box office.
