The Sheepdogs @ Kelowna Community Theatre
Feb 18 @ 8:00 pm – 8:00 pm

For a new album that The Sheepdogs didn’t initially set out to make, Changing Colours is a stunning achievement.
Proud purveyors of guitar-driven modern-day retro rock, the triple Juno Award-winning Saskatoon-based quintet has expanded its sound on Changing Colours to encompass more styles and hues to enhance the Sheepdogs’ trademark beef-and-boogie twin-axe riffs, hooks, shuffles and long-haired aesthetic.

“We identify strongly with rock ‘n roll, but there’s definitely some branching out,” says Ewan Currie, The Sheepdogs’ singer, guitarist, songwriter and occasional – and yes, you’re reading this correctly – clarinetist. “The sounds we use on this – there’s more keyboards featuring Shamus and more stringed instruments. It’s still rock ‘n roll but there are more colours.”

In the six years since The Sheepdogs claimed Rolling Stone magazine’s one and only Best Unsigned Band contest – earning them a U.S. record deal and a fervent endorsement from The Kings of Leon – the platinum-selling group has tirelessly criss-crossed the planet.

Touring in support of critically acclaimed albums Learn & Burn, The Sheepdogs and Future Nostalgia has only honed the band’s workhorse ethic, generating hits like “I Don’t Know,” the gold “Feeling Good” and “The Way It Is” along the way and transforming them into a highly disciplined live attraction.

It’s a calling that they have never taken for granted.

“We could never sit back and rest on our laurels,” notes Corbett.

Changing Colours is a testament of The Sheepdogs’ never-ending desire to follow their muse, become increasingly prolific and deliver thrilling evenings of thundering, organic rock to their devoted audiences.

The rest just takes care of itself.

Ballet Jörgen’s Anastasia: Dance Series @ Vernon & District Performing Arts Centre
Feb 20 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Ballet Jörgen's Anastasia: Dance Series @ Vernon & District Performing Arts Centre | Vernon | BC | Canada

For the third show in our 2017/2018 Dance Series, the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre Society is proud to present Ballet Jörgen's Anastasia, on Tuesday, February 20 2018 at 7:30 pm.

Canada’s Ballet Jörgen takes us all the way back to 1918 Russia with their presentation of Anastasia. This full-length story ballet is brought to our stage, celebrating the well-known story’s 100th anniversary. Set to an original score by Russian/Canadian composer Ivan Barbotin, Anastasia features a 16-person ensemble and flawless direction from choreographer Bengt Jörgen.

Anastasia centers around a seventeen-year-old Grand Duchess who is born to privilege but cast out into a post-revolutionary world. Find out what will become of her as the innocent daughter of the fallen Russian Tsar faces love, loss and heartache in an unknown world. This popular tale has inspired a multitude of books, movies and musicals over the last century, making the character the subject of modern mythology.

Bengt Jörgen, artistic director and CEO of Ballet Jörgen, chose Anastasia based on his personal interest in Russian history and the real-life disappearance of the young girl in 1918. Having worked with composer Ivan Barbotin before on two of the company’s most popular ballets The Velveteen Rabbit and The Emperor’s New Clothes, their partnership has made the production impossible to resist.

Ballet Jörgen is renowned for its ability to succinctly tell classic stories in an engaging and dramatic fashion. Paired with breathtaking costumes, impressive sets and superb lighting, Anastasia invites audiences to discover the tragic mystery of the young Grand Duchess and explore romance and mythology in the ballrooms of St. Petersburg and beyond.

Tickets for Anastasia are $45 for adults, $42 for seniors, $40 for students and are now on sale through the Ticket Seller Box Office by calling 250-549-SHOW (7469) or online at www.ticketseller.ca.
