Rock the Peach

Cannery Stage

Looking for air conditioning?  Why not visit the Cannery Stage and enjoy the play Spreading It Around by Canadian playwright Londos D’Arrigo. Spreading It Around is about a well-to-do widow living in Florida who has grown tired of handing out money to her neglectful and unappreciative children. Along with some of her friends in the retirement community she sets up the Spending it Now Foundation (SIN) to give money to people truly in need. When her greedy son and his shopaholic wife find out what she’s up to, they attempt to have her committed.

When Angela learns of their scheme she turns tables on them, proving hilariously how dangerous it can be to mess with seniors.

Shows are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 8 p.m. with a Sunday matinee at 2 p.m.

Tickets are available at the Wine Country Visitor’s Centre at Railway Street and Eckhardt Avenue in Penticton or by phone 250-276-2170.
