7:30 pm Doubt @ Powerhouse Theatre

Set at a Catholic school in the Bronx in 1964, Doubt concerns an older nun, Sister Aloysius, who does not approve of teachers' offering friendship and compassion over the discipline she feels students need in order to face the harsh world. When she suspects a new priest of sexually abusing a student, she is faced with the prospect of charging him with unproven allegations and possibly destroying his career as well as her own. To help build her case, she asks for help from an idealistic young nun, who finds her faith in compassion challenged, and the mother of the accused boy, who is protective of her son, the first black student ever admitted to St. Nicholas.

The Sadok Ukrainian Dance Ensemble is celebrating their 15th Anniversary Dance performance at the Vernon Performing Arts Theatre, Sunday, May 31st, at 2:00pm.

The Sadok Ukrainian Dance Ensemble is a dance theatre troupe that continually pushes the boundaries of this art form by entertaining and educating their audience about their Ukrainian Canadian Heritage. They have performed throughout the Okanagan Valley, Vancouver, Alberta and Los Angeles, California. In March of 2008 they performed at Disneyland, California where they shared their culture with the world. This excitingly vibrant and colourful dance is always enjoyed by audiences of both Ukrainians and non-Ukrainians alike!

Sadok translates to Orchard and since their very successful start in 1999, they have continued to spark their audiences with colourful and entertaining performances wrapped in a lovely tapestry of their traditional Ukrainian Canadian heritage.

Under the Artistic Direction of Andrea Malysh, Sadok's performances have carried them throughout BC, Alberta and to Disneyland, California. Their travels have taken them all the way to Ukraine in 2006 and they are excited to announce that they will be returning in July of 2013.

Sadok hosts the annual Okanagan Ukrainian Festival at the Vernon Performing Arts Theatre every May. Come for an afternoon of Dance, Drama and Ukrainian Spirit!

The Sadok Ukrainian Dance Ensemble is a dance theatre troupe that continually pushes the boundaries of this art form by entertaining and educating their audience about their Ukrainian Canadian Heritage. They have performed throughout the Okanagan Valley, Vancouver, Alberta and Los Angeles, California. In March of 2008 they performed at Disneyland, California where they shared their culture with the world. This excitingly vibrant and colourful dance is always enjoyed by audiences of both Ukrainians and non-Ukrainians alike!
