The season’s almost over, but you still have four more chances to catch Way Off-Broadway Wednesdays.
The fringe performance series runs Wednesdays at the Heritage Grill, with shows at 7 p.m.
This Wednesday, June 5, you can catch The Chronicles of Cañete, an evening of Chilean-Canadian stand-up comedy and storytelling by Andy Cañete. Cañete will share tales about the “reverse reverse culture shock” he suffered after moving back to Canada from Chile at the age of 23.
On June 12, it’s time for Ira Cooper’s Stuffy the Whale, a special first-time-ever presentation of theatre for young audiences at Way Off-Broadway Wednesdays. Kids and teens are welcome to attend the workshop reading of Cooper’s latest play in development – which is intended for youth but promises some hidden humour for grown-ups too.
On June 19, audiences can enjoy The Concert That Might Have Been, rescheduled from May 22. Jan Cooper’s show imagines what it might be like if four legendary country music superstars – Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, Garth Brooks and Shania Twain – walked into a bar in heaven.
Closing out the season before Way Off-Broadway Wednesdays’ summer hiatus is Codenames on June 26. The all-female, all-funny sketch/improv extravaganza features the talents of Allison Melech, Michelle Walker, Taylor Ray and Megan Phillips.
Admission to Way Off-Broadway Wednesdays shows is on a pay-what-you-want basis. Doors for all shows open at 6:30 p.m., and you can reserve seats at 604-759-0819.
