A night of whimsical delights

Quesnel theatre sport with a decidedly gypsy theme

From the moment you walk through the caravan doors at the back of Gold Pan City Dance studio on Anderson Drive, you’re in for a wildly entertaining evening June 15. Unseemly Evenings is hosting a Caravan Cabaret, a Night of Whimsical Delights using the entire GPCD Centre with unorthodox entrances, unexpected experiences and a lavish stage show.

Hatched from Jessie Herman’s creative mind, the gypsy-themed Caravan Cabaret answers her craving for more performance art in Quesnel.

As she was searching for bands that fit with her gypsy theme, Herman discovered the Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra, a five-piece band from Victoria.

They offer the atmosphere and sound she was looking for.

“First and foremost, I was looking for artists who haven’t sold their soul to commercialism,” she said.

Herman has also secured the Tim Sars Trio as the opening act.

“They’re an eclectic, animated gypsy jazz group,” she said.

“The theme of the evening lends itself to imaginative theatre and this certainly won’t be a traditional concert, but rather interactive theatre sport.”

Performing for two of Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra’s numbers is Bottoms Up, Barely Burlesque, a local dance troupe with lots of sass.

Joel Kolenchuk and Jenny Phillips bring their Vile Pole Arts to the stage and roaming actors lend even more authenticity to the gypsy theme. Polishing off the stage show is an exotic pet display.

And just when you thought the music was over for the evening, DJ Dilemma takes over and cruises the crowd into the wee hours.

With a no-host bar and snacks, the Caravan Cabaret

is set to rock the house.

Tickets are $30 in advance at Gold Pan City Dance and Bo-Peep Boutique or $35 after June 10.

Doors open at 7 p.m., June 15 and you must be 19 years or older to attend.

For information call 250-255-1171.
