About Cougar Annie
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. She died there, just shy of 97 years old.
About Katrina Kadoski
Katrina Kadoski, the actor who delivers this one-person musical tribute, spent close to three years at Cougar Annie’s garden, 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 characters.
Enjoy the show in the Pavilion at the beautiful Sooke Harbour House.
