Mark your calendars for the perennial spring favourite Divas & Friends variety show, the annual fundraising concert for the Smithers Art Gallery being held on Saturday March 29, 7.30pm, at the Della Herman Theatre, Smithers. Divas showcases the amazing range of talent in the Bulkley Valley with two hours of music and dance by local performers of all ages and styles.
TICKETS ARE NOW ON SALE! $15 adults, $10 youth (17yrs and under) from Mountain Eagle Books, SpeeDee Interior Stationery and at the door (if not already sold out!).
The concert is guaranteed to go out with a crescendo with Axes of Ego closing the show for us this year – they are a hugely popular local rock & roll band specializing in danceable classic rock covers and we’re thrilled to have hooked them to play. Whilst they are a new act for Divas, they’ll be up against some heavy competition in young Nick Cometa, back by popular demand for his third successive year, whose hip-hop moves always steal the show. Banter and balderdash from our MC’s Tom Young & Mayor Taylor Bachrach will keep you laughing (and groaning!) between acts.
The full lineup is: String Licorice; Axes of Ego; The Ringtones; Cabin Fever; Adult Tap; song and dance troupe Ramos Crew; pianists Emily Hobley, Conor Murphy, and Aiden Murphy; solo dancers Hannah West, Hannah Kluss, Nick Cometa, Jenelle Stanton, and Jenn Hutter; violinist Stefan Bichlmaier; and cello and flute duo Dorothy Giesbrecht and Gail Olsen.
Divas & Friends is a fundraiser for the Smithers Art Gallery. All proceeds go towards the continued operation of your non-profit, community gallery – proudly serving the regional community with free exhibitions and low-cost workshops and kids programs.
Many thanks to our event sponsors, Hy-Tech Drilling Ltd, North Central Plumbing and Heating, and Re/Max Bulkley Valley!
