A 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.


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.
