ARTS PALETTE: Museum holds summer events

The Summerland Museum would like to invite you to visit them on Canada Day after the flag raising ceremony in Memorial Park.

The Summerland Museum would like to invite you to visit them on Canada Day after the flag raising ceremony in Memorial Park.

They have a fabulous new display on the Japanese community of Summerland which is well worth seeing.

The museum will be open with special hours from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Canada Day. They are, of course at 9521 Wharton St. beside the Summerland Library.

In addition, to their new Japanese display the Summerland Museum is excited to once again be offering their very popular Geology Bus Tour of Summerland.

Join expert geologist Dr. Kathleen Jagger for an entertaining and informative journey exploring the first rock formations of Summerland.

The tour will be offered twice this summer, on Saturday, July 20 and again on Saturday, August 10. Registration and payment are required prior to the event. Please call the Summerland Museum for more information at 250-494-9395 or swing on by at 9521 Wharton Street, Tuesdays to Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Opening next Thursday, July 4 at the Cannery Stage in Penticton is Fortune’s Fools.

This hilarious comedy, by Frederick Stroppel, is a concise history of love gone right and love gone wrong. It’s the story of two couples, Chuck and Gail who are about to be married and Jay and Bonnie the best man and maid of honour.   Chuck is so smitten with Gail that he makes up stupid rhymes like “perfect life and perfect wife.”

Jay on the other hand is less smitten with feminist, vegetarian, Bonnie.

After their first meeting he remarks that he has experienced “…an overwhelming rush of instant contempt.”

Things don’t always work out the way we expect and the twists and turns in these two relationships are definitely a unique look at the institution of marriage.

Showtimes are Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m.

There will be a reception opening night in the adjoining Opus Bistro which will give everyone a chance to meet and chat with the cast and crew.

Reserved seat tickets are  available at the Wine Country Visitor’s Centre Railway and Eckhardt in Penticton or reserved by phone at 250-276-2170.
