OHSWEKEN — On September 23, the Six Nations Forest Pageant Theatre Committee sent a notice that they would like to inform the community as to why the Annual Pageant did not present this year.

The 63-year-old traditional outdoor theatre has attracted bus tours and local crowds over the years, but attendance and prowess in acting and coordination has caused attendance to dwindle to the point of near discontinuation.

Citing lack of financial resources and lack of personnel supports, the Pageant did not go through this year as planned.

However, the committee would like to thank the Six Nations community for their on-going support given through the annual fund-raising efforts.

“We will continue to raise funds throughout the year as expenses of the pageant grounds on Seneca Road are on-going and year-round. Our future fund raising events will continue and requires your continued support. We look forward to seeing you at these upcoming events. The SNFPT committee welcomes any interested individuals/volunteers to join our committee. Meetings are held on Mondays at 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Calendar dates and event locations will be announced in early October via CKRZ and the two local papers,” wrote the committee.
