It’s time. Time for hot cocoa, mittens, maybe even a little bit of snow? While you may want to cuddle up at home, why not get out and see all the happenings in Surrey? Warm your toes and your heart with these fun musical and theatrical performances.
On December 14th and 15th, enjoy the classic story of The Nutcracker at the Main Stage at Surrey Arts Centre (13750 88 Avenue) with the whole family. This production combines beautiful sets and extravagant costumes, with more than a hundred dancers! Experience Tchaikovsky’s classic score with its favourites like Waltz of the Flowers and Dance of the Mirlitons, with the illuminating magic of toy soldiers and sugar plum fairies. There won’t be a sad face in sight during this holiday spectacle.
The internationally acclaimed Vancouver Welsh Men’s Choir takes the Main Stage at Surrey Arts Centre (13750 88 Avenue) on Tuesday, December 10th. A Surrey Christmas tradition for over 30 years, they’ll be performing songs from around the world, from Catalonia to the Caribbean, with plenty of Celtic favourites.
It’s time to melt away that winter chill with The Bergmann Piano Duo on November 28th at Studio Theatre at the Surrey Arts Centre (13750 88 Avenue). Elizabeth and Marcel Bergmann are International prize-winners for their exciting and entertaining performances. This Coffee Concert Series encourages you to share stories and insights with friends and family. The Bergmann Duo will welcome tenor, Benjamin Butterfield, to warm up your winter with songs from Schubert, British and American songs from Charles Ives and Arnold Bax, and will wrap up with the familiar tunes of Randy Newman.
For something completely different and knee-slapping funny, check out One Man Stranger Things on January 9th at Centre Stage at City Hall. This one-man parody featuring Charles Ross will have the audience in stitches as he single-handedly fuses all the characters, dialogue, special effects, music and Eggos of the Netflix sensation Stranger Things into one incredible, “upside-down” show.
The art scene doesn’t stop in Surrey just because it’s gotten a little colder. Shake off those cobwebs and get out and see (and experience) all that Surrey is serving this season.
