“Kadoski is a confident performer who has created a well-polished cultural addition to
Vancouver Island’s heritage.” Amy Smart – Times Colonist

“It’s great to see our unique B.C. history being kept alive in so appealing a fashion.”
—Robert Moyes – Monday Magazine
California-born Ada Annie Jordan settled in the Clayoquot coastal rainforest in 1915 with
her first husband and three young children. A five-acre garden that she carved out of the
wilderness provided food and income throughout her long life. The bounty on cougars
supplemented her income and she earned her moniker of Cougar Annie by shooting over
70 of the animals. Annie gave birth to eight more children in this remote location, and in
fact rarely left the property until old age and
blindness forced her removal to Port Alberni, where she died just shy of 97.
Katrina spent close to three years at Cougar Annie’s garden and immersing herself in the
folklore surrounding the legendary pioneer-settler. Now her award winning, critically
acclaimed one-woman show has been touring around B.C. 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 BC’s
most colourful local characters.
Show will have a brief question and answer period to follow.
