Residents of the Harbour City have the opportunity to share memories and stories of the late Antony Holland this weekend.
On Saturday (Sept. 19), Kismet Theatre Academy will be holding a celebration of life for Holland beginning at 7 p.m.
Organizer Frank Moher says the celebration is an opportunity for the community to remember Holland.
“There will be a lot of stories and anecdotes and memories of Antony and the role he played in people’s lives,” Moher said.
The event will include performances from plays Holland enjoyed, excerpts from his film and TV appearances and a display of memorabilia.
“He did a lot of really major film and television work over the years and we will be showing that,” Moher said.
Holland died at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital in July at the age of 95.
Holland’s accomplishments in the theatre world have been well-documented. Last June, Holland received the Order of Canada.
The celebration of life takes place at 112-55 Victoria Rd.
