Saanich Pioneer Society is set to host the Seeds and Salt Theatre Company’s Bedtime Stories: Dreaming of Vancouver Island.

The performance consists of four stories — A Pittance of a Remittance, The Bride Ships, Strathcona 100 and The Chocolate War. A cast of four actors will use minimal props to transport the audience into Vancouver Island’s history.

“This is our third successful year and we are thrilled to present our energetic romp to 14 community venues,” said Maureen Alexander, producer. “These are stories that changed history forever and although they are little known stories, they speak to our shared sense of what it is to be an islander.”

The performance is Sunday, July 10 at 7 p.m. at St. Stephen’s Church Hall, 7921 St. Stephen’s Road.

Tickets are $10 in advance from Spelt’s Coffee Shop, Saanichton, Tanner’s Books, Sidney and from Saanich Pioneer Society Log Cabin & Museum, 7910 Polo Park Crescent, Saanichton.
