‘Red Rock Diner’ in Surrey this fall

It is a real treat to have hit Vancouver shows come out to Surrey Arts Centre. No bridge tolls and free parking are just icing on the cake. You have until June 16 to get in on the early-bird pricing for The Arts Club on Tour season at the SAC for next year.

Subscribers get a lot of perks, like up to 27 per cent off the cost of a single ticket and the right to snap up the best seats. The three shows this coming season, starting in October and closing next February, are Dean Regan’s Red Rock Diner ("Vancouver’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Musical"), Lucia Frangione’s In A Blue Moon ("Finding Home in Unexpected Places") and Amy Herzog’s 4000 Miles ("An Uplifting Story of Growing Up and Growing Old").

Red Rock Diner first came to Surrey in 1998, and a young Michael Bublé was part of the ensemble cast. Everyone loves this Red Robinson show, and perhaps SAC doesn’t have to offer free chocolate to subscribers during the performance of this show.

For lots more information, show times and ticket purchases, visit the Surrey Arts Centre online – a really good, interactive website. And while you are there, check out the junior musical theatre summer camp. This is a fantastic program for kids who see musical theatre performances in their future.

Developed by Peter Jorgensen in partnership with the Arts Club, this is one of the very best triple-threat theatre camps around. Kids aged 12 to 16 can apply, but you must have some music, singing and dancing in your background. This is not an introductory

course, but an intensive.

Deadline for application is June 26.

Also at Bear Creek Park, at the Pavillion, Fraser Valley Gilbert Sullivan Society will host a fun "Coast to Coast Ceilidh" fundraiser on

Saturday, June 13, an 8 p.m. Tickets are only $15 and yes, there will be lots of singing of tunes from Canada – coast to coast – and also a silent auction. Reserve at fvgsinformation@gmail. com.

Starting this week, White Rock Players presents its last show of the season, Paul Rudnick’s "I Hate Hamlet," from June 3 to 20. Call the box office at 604 536-7535.
