A strong appetite for entertainment has sold a few upcoming shows locally.
Country music star Corb Lund takes the stage twice at the Creekside Theater in Lake Country on January 24 and 25 to a sold-out audience.
The Glorious Sons are playing at the Vernon and District Performing Arts Center on January 25, but there are limited tickets left (which will likely sell out when this story goes live).
Bif Naked’s Stories and Songs show in Lake Country on February 17 is sold out.
But there are still tickets available for an array of other entertaining acts, like David and Ken’s Comedy with Music on January 14 at 7 p.m. at the Creekside Theater. The audience-fueled conversational comedy show is complete with true stories, character-driven improv scenes, and hilarious, spontaneous songs with world-class guitar playing. Vancouver comedians David Milchard and Ken Lawson are former Comic Strippers, who strapped their guitars and combined two of their greatest loves.
The Vernon Performing Arts Center offers a program of shows, including the Spotlight series, to offer the magic of performing arts.
“This is a special series for us and for our community,” said VDPAC Executive Director Jim Harding. “We all missed the opportunity to come together and be entertained in this truly innate and important way, and our team can’t wait to turn on the lights and pull the curtain down on this season in a safe, inviting and truly theatrical environment. . “
Fourteen performances are on the program: eight special presentations ranging from the famous Afrique en Cirque to Canada’s beloved Blackie and the Rodeo Kings; two dance performances, including Bromance in the UK, a friendship story told with parkour and acrobatics; three theatrical performances, including The Invisible-Agents of Ungentlemanly Warfare on women; and an incredible children’s festival.
“We felt like it was a do-it-all series, to give the audience some absolutely fascinating performances that will really allow us to escape and imagine and feel that thrill of what is possible with the human body then that we bring stories to life, ”said Creative Director Erin. Kennedy said.
Tickets for all shows are available at ticketseller.ca or call 250-549-SHOW (7469).
