Ballet Kelowna presents Double Variations

Contrasts and collaborations in Swan Lake at Kelowna.

Ballet Kelowna presents Double Variations this Saturday, Oct. 27 at 7:30 p.m. at Centre Stage Theatre.

Ballet Kelowna celebrates its 10th Anniversary with a program of contrasts and collaborations: good versus evil in Swan Lake’s White Swan and Black Swan pas de deux, a battle of ballerina egos, and a world premiere from two of Vancouver’s most exciting choreographers.

Tickets at the Visitors Centre.

Art exhibit

Join Summerland artist Tanya Graham for her premier show of original acrylics on canvas  5 to 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 2 at Good Omens Coffee, 13616 Kelly Ave.

On stage

The Summerland Singers and Players presents 100 Lunches — A Gourmet Comedy at Centre Stage Theatre Nov. 1 to 3 at 8 p.m. and Nov. 4 at 2 p.m.

Successful mystery playwright Chuck Reynolds has had his plays lauded by all critics except Charity Starr.

When Charity schemes to secure his help in writing her own play Chuck turns the tables and insists that the lessons be held over lunch in the city’s most expensive restaurants—at her expense!

Lunatic waiters provide a uniquely hilarious touch to these meetings.

Love blossoms despite the scheming of Chuck’s amorous neighbour. Charity’s play opens on Broadway and she finds out what it’s like to be a target for all her critical confreres.  100 Lunches is non-stop fun, romance, and explosive hilarity.

Tickets are available at Indulgences and Good Omens Coffee House.

Musical sounds

Summerland’s Tracy Fehr, a lyric, coloratura soprano, will be presenting a delightful variety program with operatic arias, art songs, African-American spirituals and musical theatre as part of the South Okanagan Concert Society series.

The concert will be held at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Nov. 2 at the Oliver Alliance Church. Phone 250-495-6487.

Painting

The Summerland Pleasure Painters will be moving from the lower level of the library to new quarters at the Harold Simpson Youth Centre effective Friday, Nov. 2.

They meet and paint every Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and visitors are welcome to come in and meet their artists, or try out their club.
