Cougar Annie Tales

cougarannieFamed for killing 70 cougars and outliving four husbands in the remote and wind-swept Clayoquot rainforest, the indomitable spirit of west coast pioneer Cougar Annie lives on in Katrina Kadowski’s musical one-woman show. Annie’s stories, letters and photos from her long and fascinating life are interwoven with original songs (on guitar and banjo) by this delightful Vancouver Island performer.This is a musical tribute to a legendary pioneer woman.

“It’s hard to say which is the best part of Katrina Kadoski’s Cougar Annie Tales — her heartfelt song cycle about this fabled West Coast matriarch, or simply hearing Kadoski is back in town.”

Alice

Alice a musical by Tom Waits       Theatre Inconnu       Dec 3 – 20, 2014

ALICEAlice a musical by Tom Waits, Katherine Brennan, and Paul Phillips – Dec 3 –20, 2014.

Theatre Inconnu’s production marks the Canadian premiere of this richly textured retelling of Lewis Carroll’s Alice stories. Both the music and script – as created by three towering artists – are exquisitely crafted. The jumping off point for this particular version of the story is the relationship between Lewis Carroll (Charles Dodgson) and his supposed inspiration for the story, Alice Liddell. A number of the more familiar episodes from the Alice stories are reworked and many of Lewis’ more outrageous characters are presented. Tom Waits is one of the most influential composer/performers of the 20th century, and continue to carve out new territory in the 21st. Local popular alternative band, The Party on High Street – who so dynamically contributed to Love Kills, the Musical (2010) – will provide musical accompaniment.

Preview  8pm:  Dec 3

Winter Memories: A Family Aerial Event

Winter Memories: A Family Aerial Event
Body In Motion Aerial Arts       Dec 6 at 6pm & 9pm

wintermemories_imageThis is a family oriented aerial show, there will be no adult-only content.

The Aerial Arts are a combination of dance, acrobatics and apparatuses. The performers use equipment such as aerial silks, aerial hoop, pole and props to create a musical expression of themselves. It’s the same as many circuses around the globe that showcase different talents and capabilities through aerial acrobatics. Our show will host Aerial Hoop, Pole, Aerial Silks and Aerial Dance. The Aerial Hoop is a large metal ring suspended from the ceiling very similar to a Trapeze or swing, where the performer(s) showcase tricks and dance off of the ground. Aerial Silks and Aerial Dance use lengths of fabric suspended from the ceiling where the aerialist climbs, twists and even performs stunning death-defying drops. The Pole is used much the same as Aerial silks even though it’s mounted to both the floor and ceiling creating a stabilized platform for the aerialist to climb, spin and also perform drops as well as gravity defying tricks.

Each ticket price includes warm beverages and cookies/snacks which are available during intermission.

Free parking is available in the near-by parking lots and along all adjacent streets.

Shows are 2.5 hours long (with a 30 minute intermission).
