DECEMBER 2018:

DECEMBER 13-22, 2018: JUDY RUSSELL PRESENTS A CHRISTMAS CAROL

 

A Holiday Family Tradition! Judy Russell Presents: Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” adapted by Anna Russell.

TICKETS AVAILABLE HERE

Last seen in Prince George in 2012 and 2014, A Christmas Carol tells the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, a greedy businessman who thinks only of making money. For him, Christmas is, in his own words, a humbug. It has been seven years since his friend and partner, Jacob Marley, died and on Christmas Eve. Marley’s ghost tells him he is to be visited during the night by three spirits: The Ghost of Christmas Past, The Ghost of Christmas Present and The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come. When Scrooge awakens on Christmas morning he is a new man, intent on doing good and celebrating the season with all of those around him.

Filled with Christmas music, dance and entertainment for the whole family, this Holiday Classic is not to be missed!

FEBRUARY 22, 2019: DOC WALKER

With over two decades of road stories, Canadian country legends Doc Walker return with the announcement of their cross-Canada tour – Acoustic Songs & Stories from the Heartland, set for early 2019. To celebrate the announcement, the duo will be releasing the official music video for their latest single ‘Get Back on My Horse’ with an exclusive first look on The Boot, October 17. Released on the 2017 album Weathervane, ‘Get Back on My Horse’ brings fans a classic Doc Walker sound, combining smooth harmonies and a sentimental story. Directed by Mike Latschislaw, the emotional music video shows a slideshow of fellow Canadians demonstrating their resilience, with some paying homage to loved ones they’ve lost along the way. Featured in the video is an RCMP officer holding a photo of a colleague lost on duty, a daughter honouring her father, and Doc Walker’s own Chris Thorsteinson with a group of friends paying homage to one they lost. “Get Back on My Horse may go down as my favourite Doc Walker song, ever,” says Dave Wasyliw. “The lyrics make me cry, but the song still has this ‘hopeful/liberating’ feeling to it. The recording is lovely, and Chris’ voice has never sounded better!” With over 20 Top 10 singles, Doc Walker is one of the most recognized Canadian country acts of this generation. The group has received multiple Canadian Country Music Awards, including Fans’ Choice, Group or Duo of the Year, Video of the Year, Single of the Year, and Country Music Program or Special of the Year. In addition, Doc Walker has been nominated for several JUNO Awards for Country Album of the Year, including a win in 2009 for the album Beautiful Life. With more dates to be added, the Acoustic Songs & Stories from the Heartland tour will kick off in Doc Walker’s hometown of Winnipeg, MB and see them traveling throughout Ontario before heading west to British Columbia and Alberta. Reminiscent of the campfires and kitchen parties that Chris and Dave have played over the years, his tour will not be the typical ‘songs and stories’ performance – the banter is loose, unscripted, and always hilarious!
