Passion & Power         Now – April 8

Persephone Theatre

A musical spectacle about romantic entanglements is front and centre at the Remai Arts Centre right now. Onegin is a rock opera based on the novel by Alexander Pushkin and set to music of Tchaikovsky. It centers around Evgeni Onegin who has just inherited his uncle’s farm and gets romantically caught up with the neighbouring family. He flirts with one of the daughters who’s already engaged to his friend Valdimir. This show has been met with wide acclaim and won many awards. It’s a touring show from Vancouver’s Arts Club. Tickets are going fast and the run has already been extended once. They run $26 – $46.

His Dudeness          Friday

Roxy Theatre

Arguably one of the most quotable movies of the 90s is back up on the big screen this weekend. The Big Lebowski starring Jeff Bridges is the story of The Dude, played by bridges, a Los Angeles slacker who is mistaken for a millionaire with the same name. My personal favourite is “This aggression will not stand man!” The movie got tepid reviews when it was first released but it’s gone on to become a cult classic. The Roxy Theatre is celebrating the movie’s anniversary in style with White Russians to drink and a costume contest where the winner goes home with a new rug. This is a fun night out with the buddies. Tickets are $12 – $15.

My Favourite Things     Saturday

Broadway Theatre

You know you know the words to every tune so why not give in. The classic Rodgers & Hammerstein musical is coming to the big screen and for once, you won’t have to be silent when the music kicks in. The Broadway Theatre is hosting a special sing-a-long screening. The audience is encouraged to dress up and get those vocal chords ready to sing at the top of your lungs. Guest conductor BJ Harris will be there to help you get warmed up and lead you through the movie’s hits. Bark like a dog at Rolf, snuggle with Gretel and wave your Edelweiss proudly. This will be fun for the whole family. Tickets are $18.
