Vernon and District Performing Arts Center hosts strong January lineup – Vernon News

Shows galore in Vernon

Got a case of winter – and COVID – blas?

You can relieve some of the stress with several shows in January at the Vernon and District Performing Arts Center.

The fun begins with Frazey Ford, January 16 at 7:30 p.m.

The Vancouver-based singer-songwriter is on tour in support of his third album, U kin B the Sun.

Then, on January 18, the Fringe Theater performance of Something is Rotten – Hamletic Variation takes the stage.
In 57 minutes flat, two performers replay the tragic story of the Prince of Denmark using a barbecue fork, a kettle, a rose, a ball of wool … and chalk.

Laughter and blood flow, and nods to American cinema abound, from The Exorcist to The Godfather.

The fun continues on January 21 with concert duo Marina Thibeault and Janelle Fung.

With Thibeault on the viola and Fung on the piano, the duo have toured across Canada, the United States and Europe.

On January 23, Romp and Repose will feature Okanagan Symphony Orchestra musicians Karmen Doucette on bassoon, Lauris Davis on oboe and Audrey Patterson on trumpet.

The Glorious Sons take the stage on January 25 with guest JJ Wilde.

Following the release of their new tracks “Daylight” and “Young King,” two-time Juno Award-winning rock group The Glorious Sons is taking part in their Unfinished Business tour.

Full proof of vaccination will be required for all shows.
