The Offspring Visits Grande Prairie
It’s been a long time since we’ve seen The Offspring, but they’re back with new music and to let you enjoy punk rock royalty.
The first single off their upcoming album was released last month. It seems like only yesterday that these guys were playing shows all over Canadian soil but it’s been a few years since we’ve seen them visit Grande Prairie – well not quite yet 20 years later at least…
Join them at Bonnetts Energy Centre along with Canadian rockers Simple Plan for the “Let The Bad Times Roll Tour”
Fiddler On The Roof
The musical Fiddler on the Roof is a winner of nine Tony Awards when it debuted in 1964. The show comes from Broadway legends, Jerome Robbins and Harold Prince; songwriters Jerry Bock & Sheldon Harnick as well as Joseph Stein who wrote the book for this classic tune that has been seen by many around the world!
Fiddler on the Roof is a show that touches audiences with its humor, warmth, and honesty. The story centers around Tevye who has five daughters in Anatevka village while living through changing social mores as well anti-Semitism from Czarist Russia which he tries to protect them against by teaching traditional values even though it’s not popular anymore within their culture or any other kind for that matter; rich historical detail makes this play universal enough so everyone can relate no matter what race/class/, nationality.
