Katrina Kadoski will reprise her one-woman role as Cougar Annie in Sooke on Feb. 2.
Cougar Annie Tales revolves around the life of Ada Annie Jordan who settled in the Clayoquot coastal rainforest in 1915. She had 11 children, four husbands, was famous for trapping and killing cougars, ran a general store and post office from her home, and had a mail-order garden nursery.
Kadoski lived in Clayoquot Sound for three years caretaking Cougar Annie’s garden and immersing herself in the folklore surrounding the legendary pioneer-settler.
Drawing upon many sources, including Annie’s family, Cougar Annie Tales uses dramatic narrative, images, letters, and original compositions to celebrate the unconventional life of one of B.C.’s most colourful characters.
Cougar Annie Tales is performed at Royal Canadian Legion at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 each.
