O’Celli
Knox Performance Centre
Dec. 7th 2024 | $70/Ticket

​What can sound better than a cello? Eight cellos! This instrument, the closest to the human voice, is one of the few which carries being multiplied. When played together with others, the beauties of this intrument add up, giving birth to a unique, full and exceptional sound. Ô-Celli was brought to life by the shared passion of eight cellists, chamber musicians and concertists, for this exceptional vibration they created. Together, they take us on a fabulous journey through a repertoire of both original and arranged pieces, as they eagerly travel through a wide musical panel, ranging from Tchaikovsky to Strauss, passing by the music of Piazzolla and Nino Rota.​

J.S. Bach’s Long Walk
in the Snow

Knox Performance Centre
Apr. 24th 2025 | $60/Ticket

Know Performance Centre welcomes CBC’s Tom Allen and friends to the stage for “JS Bach’s Long Walk in the Snow,” a narrated performance accompanied by music. About the show, Allan writes that it “…is a coming-of-age-story about a hot-headed, small-town orphan who narrowly avoided committing murder, turned his back on a perfectly good job and walked 400 kilometres north to find love, fulfilment, and the father figure he didn’t know he needed.” The 20-year old’s trek to the sophisticated port city of Lubeck was a four-month odyssey, a memorable coming-of-age trip that musical storyteller Tom Allen takes you along for a tale of sword fights, big business, and a glittering Christmas romance.

Tara Cheyanne
& Calder White

Prince George Playhouse

May 10th, 2025 | $45/Ticket

Body Parts is a solo performance by veteran artist Tara Cheyenne Friedenberg in which she tries to perform her show but gets comically side-tracked by her own body issues and the absurdity of performing them.Something has gone terribly wrong! Part stand-up comedy, part Greek tragedy, part performance art, part contemporary dance.

BABY is a contemporary dance theatre piece that integrates puppetry, prop, and costume to distort the audience's perception of the number of 'real' bodies on stage. The characters we encounter in the piece exist at the intersection of intimacy, anonymity, and horror, multiplying and projecting themselves onto other parts of their own bodies, onto the bodies of other performers, and outwards into space in the pursuit of connection.
