RCAC presents An Unconventional Life April 5, 2019


The Rossland Council for Arts & Culture (RCAC) is thrilled to present An Unconventional Life on Friday, April 5, 2019 at 7:30 PM. This musical and theatrical performance piecewritten by Lynn Van Deursen, performed by Noemi Kiss and Lynn Van Deursen with pianist Judy Runions. Through the guise of a graduation speech, An Unconventional Life tells the tale of an unconventional young woman and her passionate pursuit of an education.


This remount of the very popular musical drama based on the film Yentl! An Unconventional Life is the result of three Kootenay artists collaborating during the winter months; daring to dream not only about Spring returning, but also about sharing their creative efforts with an audience.


When local soprano Noémi Kiss decided she wanted to sing all the songs from the movie Yentl starring Barbara Streisand, she asked Kaslo thespian Lynn van Deursen if she could “write something theatrical” to link the songs together and create a performance piece. Noémi then asked Nelson pianist Judy Runions if she’d be willing to transpose the orchestral score and accompany her.


Join us a Rossland Miners’ Hall on Friday, April 5 for An Unconventional Life. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at “Out of the Cellar” in Rossland, or online at
