    Christmas Tree Festival

    Walk the museum to see trees custom decorated by Cloverdale businesses and vote for your favourite!

    Tree Sponsor Call Out

    We have 25 pre-lit Christmas trees that need a Cloverdale business sponsor to decorate them! Decorate your tree however you like and wrap a few gifts to put underneath for the Christmas Hamper Program. Trees will be on display inside the museum from December 1 to 22, 2019. Museum visitors will be voting for their favourite tree in hopes of winning $100 to spend at a Cloverdale business of their choice.

    The cost to sponsor a tree is $150, which gets you:

    • a tree to decorate as you wish
    • a sign beside the tree to recognize your business
    • your logo in an ad in the Cloverdale Reporter
    • recognition on our social media channels
    • exposure to our many museum visitors

    Cirque du Soleil Luzia

    LUZIA premiered in April 2016 and is Cirque du Soleil’s 38th original production since 1984.

    LUZIA takes you to an imaginary mexico, like in a waking dream, where light (“luz” in Spanish) quenches the spirit and rain (“lluvia”) soothes the soul. through a series of grand visual surprises and breathtaking acrobatic performances, LUZIA invites audiences to escape on a surrealistic journey through a sumptuous and vibrant world suspended somewhere between dreams and reality.

    Smoothly passing from an old movie set to the ocean to a smoky dance hall or an arid desert, LUZIA cleverly brings to the stage multiple places, faces and sounds of mexico taken from both tradition and modernity. Rich in awe-inspiring moments, LUZIA enchants by incorporating rain into acrobatic and artistic scenes – a first for a Cirque du Soleil touring production.

Watched over by the wily furniture dealer, Gregory Solomon, the brothers are party to revelation after revelation, by which they slowly come to realize the consequences of their past decisions. Suddenly the cost of the pieces of furniture before them seems no weightier than that of the choices they made so long ago.

    15:00-17:00
    2019.12.01

    FADO – The Saddest Music in the World

    Acclaimed Portuguese-Canadian playwright Elaine Ávila’s new play, FADO, is a tale of love and ghosts set in the back alleys and brothels of old Lisbon. Part concert, part theatre, the story of a young woman confronting her country’s Fascist past and her own identity is interwoven with the heartbreaking national music of Portugal known as Fado, which means “fate.”

    The hit of the Victoria Fringe in 2018, Fado won the Award for Favourite Musical, with BC’s own beloved Sara Marreiros playing the ghost of Amália Rodrigues, the queen of Fado.

    WRITTEN BY ELAINE ÁVILA, DIRECTED BY MERCEDES BÁTIZ-BENÉT, FEATURING LIVE MUSIC BY FADO SINGER SARA MARREIROS

    “…resonates and pulls at heartstrings in inexpressible ways. Fado is another triumph for Mercedes Bátiz-Benét and Puente Theatre.” – Janice Lacouvée

    “Fado is a triumph. Its raw emotion echoes long after the final notes are sung.” – Showbill Canada

    Anon(ymous)

    Acclaimed director, writer, actor, and graduate, Carmen Aguirre returns to Studio 58 to direct Anon(ymous), a timely and imaginative retelling of Homer’s epic poem The Odyssey.
    Iizuka’s Odysseus is a young refugee named Anon, who travels the United States in search of his disappeared mother. Far away from home and constantly skirting danger, he encounters a wide variety of people and creatures including a murderous butcher, a fantastical stiletto-wearing bird, and a salacious truck driver. It’s those who offer kindness and hope—an immigrant family, a chorus of refugees, and a surfing goddess, that allow him to stay strong in his resolve to reunite with his family.Aguirre says, “This play is an ode to refugees everywhere, and a compelling exploration of the question: what defines home? I am overjoyed that Kathryn Shaw approached me to direct this moving piece and am eager to tackle a modern adaptation of an ancient story that is so relevant today.Epic, intimate, whimsical, poetic, horrifying, and funny, the plays biggest draw is that it spotlights the invisible brown work force of North America.”A drama by Naomi IizukaDirected by Carmen AguirreSet and Prop Design – Jessica Oostergo

      Christmas Tree Festival

      Walk the museum to see trees custom decorated by Cloverdale businesses and vote for your favourite!

      Tree Sponsor Call Out

      We have 25 pre-lit Christmas trees that need a Cloverdale business sponsor to decorate them! Decorate your tree however you like and wrap a few gifts to put underneath for the Christmas Hamper Program. Trees will be on display inside the museum from December 1 to 22, 2019. Museum visitors will be voting for their favourite tree in hopes of winning $100 to spend at a Cloverdale business of their choice.

      The cost to sponsor a tree is $150, which gets you:

      • a tree to decorate as you wish
      • a sign beside the tree to recognize your business
      • your logo in an ad in the Cloverdale Reporter
      • recognition on our social media channels
      • exposure to our many museum visitors

      Cirque du Soleil Luzia

      LUZIA premiered in April 2016 and is Cirque du Soleil’s 38th original production since 1984.

      LUZIA takes you to an imaginary mexico, like in a waking dream, where light (“luz” in Spanish) quenches the spirit and rain (“lluvia”) soothes the soul. through a series of grand visual surprises and breathtaking acrobatic performances, LUZIA invites audiences to escape on a surrealistic journey through a sumptuous and vibrant world suspended somewhere between dreams and reality.

      Smoothly passing from an old movie set to the ocean to a smoky dance hall or an arid desert, LUZIA cleverly brings to the stage multiple places, faces and sounds of mexico taken from both tradition and modernity. Rich in awe-inspiring moments, LUZIA enchants by incorporating rain into acrobatic and artistic scenes – a first for a Cirque du Soleil touring production.

      A New York cop and his estranged rich surgeon brother meet for the first time in 18 years in a brownstone attic to sell off their parents’ furniture. Watched over by the wily furniture dealer, Gregory Solomon, the brothers are party to revelation after revelation, by which they slowly come to realize the consequences of their past decisions. Suddenly the cost of the pieces of furniture before them seems no weightier than that of the choices they made so long ago.

      2019.12.01

      FADO – The Saddest Music in the World

      Acclaimed Portuguese-Canadian playwright Elaine Ávila’s new play, FADO, is a tale of love and ghosts set in the back alleys and brothels of old Lisbon. Part concert, part theatre, the story of a young woman confronting her country’s Fascist past and her own identity is interwoven with the heartbreaking national music of Portugal known as Fado, which means “fate.”

      The hit of the Victoria Fringe in 2018, Fado won the Award for Favourite Musical, with BC’s own beloved Sara Marreiros playing the ghost of Amália Rodrigues, the queen of Fado.

      WRITTEN BY ELAINE ÁVILA, DIRECTED BY MERCEDES BÁTIZ-BENÉT, FEATURING LIVE MUSIC BY FADO SINGER SARA MARREIROS

      “…resonates and pulls at heartstrings in inexpressible ways. Fado is another triumph for Mercedes Bátiz-Benét and Puente Theatre.” – Janice Lacouvée

      “Fado is a triumph. Its raw emotion echoes long after the final notes are sung.” – Showbill Canada

      Anon(ymous)

      Acclaimed director, writer, actor, and graduate, Carmen Aguirre returns to Studio 58 to direct Anon(ymous), a timely and imaginative retelling of Homer’s epic poem The Odyssey.
      Iizuka’s Odysseus is a young refugee named Anon, who travels the United States in search of his disappeared mother. Far away from home and constantly skirting danger, he encounters a wide variety of people and creatures including a murderous butcher, a fantastical stiletto-wearing bird, and a salacious truck driver. It’s those who offer kindness and hope—an immigrant family, a chorus of refugees, and a surfing goddess, that allow him to stay strong in his resolve to reunite with his family.Aguirre says, “This play is an ode to refugees everywhere, and a compelling exploration of the question: what defines home? I am overjoyed that Kathryn Shaw approached me to direct this moving piece and am eager to tackle a modern adaptation of an ancient story that is so relevant today.Epic, intimate, whimsical, poetic, horrifying, and funny, the plays biggest draw is that it spotlights the invisible brown work force of North America.”A drama by Naomi IizukaDirected by Carmen AguirreSet and Prop Design – Jessica Oostergo

    19:30-21:30
    2019.12.03-2019.12.05

    FADO – The Saddest Music in the World

    Acclaimed Portuguese-Canadian playwright Elaine Ávila’s new play, FADO, is a tale of love and ghosts set in the back alleys and brothels of old Lisbon. Part concert, part theatre, the story of a young woman confronting her country’s Fascist past and her own identity is interwoven with the heartbreaking national music of Portugal known as Fado, which means “fate.”

    The hit of the Victoria Fringe in 2018, Fado won the Award for Favourite Musical, with BC’s own beloved Sara Marreiros playing the ghost of Amália Rodrigues, the queen of Fado.

    WRITTEN BY ELAINE ÁVILA, DIRECTED BY MERCEDES BÁTIZ-BENÉT, FEATURING LIVE MUSIC BY FADO SINGER SARA MARREIROS

    “…resonates and pulls at heartstrings in inexpressible ways. Fado is another triumph for Mercedes Bátiz-Benét and Puente Theatre.” – Janice Lacouvée

    “Fado is a triumph. Its raw emotion echoes long after the final notes are sung.” – Showbill Canada

    Cirque du Soleil Luzia

    LUZIA premiered in April 2016 and is Cirque du Soleil’s 38th original production since 1984.

    LUZIA takes you to an imaginary mexico, like in a waking dream, where light (“luz” in Spanish) quenches the spirit and rain (“lluvia”) soothes the soul. through a series of grand visual surprises and breathtaking acrobatic performances, LUZIA invites audiences to escape on a surrealistic journey through a sumptuous and vibrant world suspended somewhere between dreams and reality.

    Smoothly passing from an old movie set to the ocean to a smoky dance hall or an arid desert, LUZIA cleverly brings to the stage multiple places, faces and sounds of mexico taken from both tradition and modernity. Rich in awe-inspiring moments, LUZIA enchants by incorporating rain into acrobatic and artistic scenes – a first for a Cirque du Soleil touring production.

      Cirque du Soleil Luzia

      LUZIA premiered in April 2016 and is Cirque du Soleil’s 38th original production since 1984.

      LUZIA takes you to an imaginary mexico, like in a waking dream, where light (“luz” in Spanish) quenches the spirit and rain (“lluvia”) soothes the soul. through a series of grand visual surprises and breathtaking acrobatic performances, LUZIA invites audiences to escape on a surrealistic journey through a sumptuous and vibrant world suspended somewhere between dreams and reality.

      Smoothly passing from an old movie set to the ocean to a smoky dance hall or an arid desert, LUZIA cleverly brings to the stage multiple places, faces and sounds of mexico taken from both tradition and modernity. Rich in awe-inspiring moments, LUZIA enchants by incorporating rain into acrobatic and artistic scenes – a first for a Cirque du Soleil touring production.

    O Christmas Tea: A British Comedy

    Off-Broadway Comedians and 3-time IMPRESARIO Award-Winners (London) James & Jamesy present their outrageously funny and brilliantly inventive Christmas comedy classic O Christmas Tea; an astonishing show that delights the hearts of thousands every holiday season.

    When catastrophe strikes at James and Jamesy’s Christmas tea party, flooding the world with tea, the friends leap into action, finding innovative and hilarious solutions to keep them afloat. Redefining immersive theatre, these masters of physical comedy—with over 20 comedy awards to their name—sweep the audience out to sea in a jolly aquatic escapade brimming with whimsy, action, and ingenuity in a celebration of friendship at Christmas.

    “Complete and utter fun… for all ages.”
    ★★★★★ CBC

    “Outrageously funny, magnificently written, beautifully choreographed.”
    ★★★★★ London Free Press

    “An ode to the idea that anything is possible.”
    ★★★★★ Torontoist

    “I cannot think of a show that will leave you more profoundly happy than this.”
    ★★★★★ Stage Door Toronto

    Hailed as “a child’s imagination on steroids” by London Free Press and “a masterpiece of physical comedy” by Theatre In London, critics rave for the charismatic James & Jamesy. A must-see performance on the international comedy circuit, the unstoppable duo, regarded as “one of the most popular fringe duos ever” (CBC), has been named Best of Fest (Orlando, Toronto, Winnipeg, Ottawa), Most Outstanding Show (London), Best Comedy (Victoria), Patrons’ Pick (London), among many other accolades.

      O Christmas Tea: A British Comedy

      Off-Broadway Comedians and 3-time IMPRESARIO Award-Winners (London) James & Jamesy present their outrageously funny and brilliantly inventive Christmas comedy classic O Christmas Tea; an astonishing show that delights the hearts of thousands every holiday season.

      When catastrophe strikes at James and Jamesy’s Christmas tea party, flooding the world with tea, the friends leap into action, finding innovative and hilarious solutions to keep them afloat. Redefining immersive theatre, these masters of physical comedy—with over 20 comedy awards to their name—sweep the audience out to sea in a jolly aquatic escapade brimming with whimsy, action, and ingenuity in a celebration of friendship at Christmas.

      “Complete and utter fun… for all ages.”
      ★★★★★ CBC

      “Outrageously funny, magnificently written, beautifully choreographed.”
      ★★★★★ London Free Press

      “An ode to the idea that anything is possible.”
      ★★★★★ Torontoist

      “I cannot think of a show that will leave you more profoundly happy than this.”
      ★★★★★ Stage Door Toronto

      Hailed as “a child’s imagination on steroids” by London Free Press and “a masterpiece of physical comedy” by Theatre In London, critics rave for the charismatic James & Jamesy. A must-see performance on the international comedy circuit, the unstoppable duo, regarded as “one of the most popular fringe duos ever” (CBC), has been named Best of Fest (Orlando, Toronto, Winnipeg, Ottawa), Most Outstanding Show (London), Best Comedy (Victoria), Patrons’ Pick (London), among many other accolades.

  • FADO – The Saddest Music in the World
    20:00-22:00
    2019.12.06-2019.12.07

    FADO – The Saddest Music in the World

    Acclaimed Portuguese-Canadian playwright Elaine Ávila’s new play, FADO, is a tale of love and ghosts set in the back alleys and brothels of old Lisbon. Part concert, part theatre, the story of a young woman confronting her country’s Fascist past and her own identity is interwoven with the heartbreaking national music of Portugal known as Fado, which means “fate.”

    The hit of the Victoria Fringe in 2018, Fado won the Award for Favourite Musical, with BC’s own beloved Sara Marreiros playing the ghost of Amália Rodrigues, the queen of Fado.

    WRITTEN BY ELAINE ÁVILA, DIRECTED BY MERCEDES BÁTIZ-BENÉT, FEATURING LIVE MUSIC BY FADO SINGER SARA MARREIROS

    “…resonates and pulls at heartstrings in inexpressible ways. Fado is another triumph for Mercedes Bátiz-Benét and Puente Theatre.” – Janice Lacouvée

    “Fado is a triumph. Its raw emotion echoes long after the final notes are sung.” – Showbill Canada

    • FADO – The Saddest Music in the World
      20:00-22:00
      2019.12.06-2019.12.07

      FADO – The Saddest Music in the World

      Acclaimed Portuguese-Canadian playwright Elaine Ávila’s new play, FADO, is a tale of love and ghosts set in the back alleys and brothels of old Lisbon. Part concert, part theatre, the story of a young woman confronting her country’s Fascist past and her own identity is interwoven with the heartbreaking national music of Portugal known as Fado, which means “fate.”

      The hit of the Victoria Fringe in 2018, Fado won the Award for Favourite Musical, with BC’s own beloved Sara Marreiros playing the ghost of Amália Rodrigues, the queen of Fado.

      WRITTEN BY ELAINE ÁVILA, DIRECTED BY MERCEDES BÁTIZ-BENÉT, FEATURING LIVE MUSIC BY FADO SINGER SARA MARREIROS

      “…resonates and pulls at heartstrings in inexpressible ways. Fado is another triumph for Mercedes Bátiz-Benét and Puente Theatre.” – Janice Lacouvée

      “Fado is a triumph. Its raw emotion echoes long after the final notes are sung.” – Showbill Canada

  • Jason Sylvester and Kellen Saip Acoustic Concert
    19:00-23:00
    2019.12.07

    Jason Sylvester and Kellen Saip Acoustic Concert

    A full evening of the acoustic stylings of local singer-songwriters Jason Sylvester and Kellen Saip.

    Tickets are $15 online or at the door.
    Local craft beer will be available for $5 each. This event will be 19+ only.

    Jason Sylvester is a singer-songwriter from the Fraser Valley. His voice is delicately complex and understated as his guitar carries each song with skill and sincere delivery. Sylvester’s lyrics are honest and imaginative, painting a picture for the stories he tells. His recent Fleeced Space EP is a collection of four bittersweet songs, featuring Vancouver cellist Brian Chan.

    www.jasonsylvestermusic.com – @jasonsylvestermusic

    Kellen Saip gently fuses folk and blues with subtle undertones of faith and soul that derived from his family gospel roots. Since 2010, Saip has been performing across the lower mainland and has recently toured across Canada. His recent EP, Take Me Away, was recorded with Cory Woodward from the band Lion, Bear, Fox. His upcoming full length album is self-titled and promises to be his best work yet.

    • Jason Sylvester and Kellen Saip Acoustic Concert
      19:00-23:00
      2019.12.07

      Jason Sylvester and Kellen Saip Acoustic Concert

      A full evening of the acoustic stylings of local singer-songwriters Jason Sylvester and Kellen Saip.

      Tickets are $15 online or at the door.
      Local craft beer will be available for $5 each. This event will be 19+ only.

      Jason Sylvester is a singer-songwriter from the Fraser Valley. His voice is delicately complex and understated as his guitar carries each song with skill and sincere delivery. Sylvester’s lyrics are honest and imaginative, painting a picture for the stories he tells. His recent Fleeced Space EP is a collection of four bittersweet songs, featuring Vancouver cellist Brian Chan.

      www.jasonsylvestermusic.com – @jasonsylvestermusic

      Kellen Saip gently fuses folk and blues with subtle undertones of faith and soul that derived from his family gospel roots. Since 2010, Saip has been performing across the lower mainland and has recently toured across Canada. His recent EP, Take Me Away, was recorded with Cory Woodward from the band Lion, Bear, Fox. His upcoming full length album is self-titled and promises to be his best work yet.

    6 Holly Jolly Sundays of Art and Crafts before Christmas
  • Cirque du Soleil Luzia
    13:30-14:00
    2019.12.08

    Cirque du Soleil Luzia

    LUZIA premiered in April 2016 and is Cirque du Soleil’s 38th original production since 1984.

    LUZIA takes you to an imaginary mexico, like in a waking dream, where light (“luz” in Spanish) quenches the spirit and rain (“lluvia”) soothes the soul. through a series of grand visual surprises and breathtaking acrobatic performances, LUZIA invites audiences to escape on a surrealistic journey through a sumptuous and vibrant world suspended somewhere between dreams and reality.

    Smoothly passing from an old movie set to the ocean to a smoky dance hall or an arid desert, LUZIA cleverly brings to the stage multiple places, faces and sounds of mexico taken from both tradition and modernity. Rich in awe-inspiring moments, LUZIA enchants by incorporating rain into acrobatic and artistic scenes – a first for a Cirque du Soleil touring production.

  • FADO – The Saddest Music in the World
    15:00-17:00
    2019.12.08

    FADO – The Saddest Music in the World

    Acclaimed Portuguese-Canadian playwright Elaine Ávila’s new play, FADO, is a tale of love and ghosts set in the back alleys and brothels of old Lisbon. Part concert, part theatre, the story of a young woman confronting her country’s Fascist past and her own identity is interwoven with the heartbreaking national music of Portugal known as Fado, which means “fate.”

    The hit of the Victoria Fringe in 2018, Fado won the Award for Favourite Musical, with BC’s own beloved Sara Marreiros playing the ghost of Amália Rodrigues, the queen of Fado.

    WRITTEN BY ELAINE ÁVILA, DIRECTED BY MERCEDES BÁTIZ-BENÉT, FEATURING LIVE MUSIC BY FADO SINGER SARA MARREIROS

    “…resonates and pulls at heartstrings in inexpressible ways. Fado is another triumph for Mercedes Bátiz-Benét and Puente Theatre.” – Janice Lacouvée

    “Fado is a triumph. Its raw emotion echoes long after the final notes are sung.” – Showbill Canada

      FADO – The Saddest Music in the World

      Acclaimed Portuguese-Canadian playwright Elaine Ávila’s new play, FADO, is a tale of love and ghosts set in the back alleys and brothels of old Lisbon. Part concert, part theatre, the story of a young woman confronting her country’s Fascist past and her own identity is interwoven with the heartbreaking national music of Portugal known as Fado, which means “fate.”

      The hit of the Victoria Fringe in 2018, Fado won the Award for Favourite Musical, with BC’s own beloved Sara Marreiros playing the ghost of Amália Rodrigues, the queen of Fado.

    Cirque du Soleil Luzia

    LUZIA premiered in April 2016 and is Cirque du Soleil’s 38th original production since 1984.

    LUZIA takes you to an imaginary mexico, like in a waking dream, where light (“luz” in Spanish) quenches the spirit and rain (“lluvia”) soothes the soul. through a series of grand visual surprises and breathtaking acrobatic performances, LUZIA invites audiences to escape on a surrealistic journey through a sumptuous and vibrant world suspended somewhere between dreams and reality.

    Smoothly passing from an old movie set to the ocean to a smoky dance hall or an arid desert, LUZIA cleverly brings to the stage multiple places, faces and sounds of mexico taken from both tradition and modernity. Rich in awe-inspiring moments, LUZIA enchants by incorporating rain into acrobatic and artistic scenes – a first for a Cirque du Soleil touring production.

    • FADO – The Saddest Music in the World
      19:30-21:30
      2019.12.10-2019.12.12

      FADO – The Saddest Music in the World

      Acclaimed Portuguese-Canadian playwright Elaine Ávila’s new play, FADO, is a tale of love and ghosts set in the back alleys and brothels of old Lisbon. Part concert, part theatre, the story of a young woman confronting her country’s Fascist past and her own identity is interwoven with the heartbreaking national music of Portugal known as Fado, which means “fate.”

      The hit of the Victoria Fringe in 2018, Fado won the Award for Favourite Musical, with BC’s own beloved Sara Marreiros playing the ghost of Amália Rodrigues, the queen of Fado.

      WRITTEN BY ELAINE ÁVILA, DIRECTED BY MERCEDES BÁTIZ-BENÉT, FEATURING LIVE MUSIC BY FADO SINGER SARA MARREIROS

      “…resonates and pulls at heartstrings in inexpressible ways. Fado is another triumph for Mercedes Bátiz-Benét and Puente Theatre.” – Janice Lacouvée

      “Fado is a triumph. Its raw emotion echoes long after the final notes are sung.” – Showbill Canada

      20:00-20:30
      2019.12.10-2019.12.14

      Cirque du Soleil Luzia

      LUZIA premiered in April 2016 and is Cirque du Soleil’s 38th original production since 1984.

      LUZIA takes you to an imaginary mexico, like in a waking dream, where light (“luz” in Spanish) quenches the spirit and rain (“lluvia”) soothes the soul. through a series of grand visual surprises and breathtaking acrobatic performances, LUZIA invites audiences to escape on a surrealistic journey through a sumptuous and vibrant world suspended somewhere between dreams and reality.

      Smoothly passing from an old movie set to the ocean to a smoky dance hall or an arid desert, LUZIA cleverly brings to the stage multiple places, faces and sounds of mexico taken from both tradition and modernity. Rich in awe-inspiring moments, LUZIA enchants by incorporating rain into acrobatic and artistic scenes – a first for a Cirque du Soleil touring production.

    O Christmas Tea: A British Comedy

    Off-Broadway Comedians and 3-time IMPRESARIO Award-Winners (London) James & Jamesy present their outrageously funny and brilliantly inventive Christmas comedy classic O Christmas Tea; an astonishing show that delights the hearts of thousands every holiday season.

    When catastrophe strikes at James and Jamesy’s Christmas tea party, flooding the world with tea, the friends leap into action, finding innovative and hilarious solutions to keep them afloat. Redefining immersive theatre, these masters of physical comedy—with over 20 comedy awards to their name—sweep the audience out to sea in a jolly aquatic escapade brimming with whimsy, action, and ingenuity in a celebration of friendship at Christmas.

    “Complete and utter fun… for all ages.”
    ★★★★★ CBC

    “Outrageously funny, magnificently written, beautifully choreographed.”
    ★★★★★ London Free Press

    “An ode to the idea that anything is possible.”
    ★★★★★ Torontoist

    “I cannot think of a show that will leave you more profoundly happy than this.”
    ★★★★★ Stage Door Toronto

    Hailed as “a child’s imagination on steroids” by London Free Press and “a masterpiece of physical comedy” by Theatre In London, critics rave for the charismatic James & Jamesy. A must-see performance on the international comedy circuit, the unstoppable duo, regarded as “one of the most popular fringe duos ever” (CBC), has been named Best of Fest (Orlando, Toronto, Winnipeg, Ottawa), Most Outstanding Show (London), Best Comedy (Victoria), Patrons’ Pick (London), among many other accolades.

  • FADO – The Saddest Music in the World
    20:00-22:00
    2019.12.13-2019.12.14

    FADO – The Saddest Music in the World

    Acclaimed Portuguese-Canadian playwright Elaine Ávila’s new play, FADO, is a tale of love and ghosts set in the back alleys and brothels of old Lisbon. Part concert, part theatre, the story of a young woman confronting her country’s Fascist past and her own identity is interwoven with the heartbreaking national music of Portugal known as Fado, which means “fate.”

    The hit of the Victoria Fringe in 2018, Fado won the Award for Favourite Musical, with BC’s own beloved Sara Marreiros playing the ghost of Amália Rodrigues, the queen of Fado.

    WRITTEN BY ELAINE ÁVILA, DIRECTED BY MERCEDES BÁTIZ-BENÉT, FEATURING LIVE MUSIC BY FADO SINGER SARA MARREIROS

    “…resonates and pulls at heartstrings in inexpressible ways. Fado is another triumph for Mercedes Bátiz-Benét and Puente Theatre.” – Janice Lacouvée

    “Fado is a triumph. Its raw emotion echoes long after the final notes are sung.” – Showbill Canada

      O Christmas Tea: A British Comedy

      Off-Broadway Comedians and 3-time IMPRESARIO Award-Winners (London) James & Jamesy present their outrageously funny and brilliantly inventive Christmas comedy classic O Christmas Tea; an astonishing show that delights the hearts of thousands every holiday season.

      When catastrophe strikes at James and Jamesy’s Christmas tea party, flooding the world with tea, the friends leap into action, finding innovative and hilarious solutions to keep them afloat. Redefining immersive theatre, these masters of physical comedy—with over 20 comedy awards to their name—sweep the audience out to sea in a jolly aquatic escapade brimming with whimsy, action, and ingenuity in a celebration of friendship at Christmas.

      “Complete and utter fun… for all ages.”
      ★★★★★ CBC

      “Outrageously funny, magnificently written, beautifully choreographed.”
      ★★★★★ London Free Press

      “An ode to the idea that anything is possible.”
      ★★★★★ Torontoist

      “I cannot think of a show that will leave you more profoundly happy than this.”
      ★★★★★ Stage Door Toronto

      Hailed as “a child’s imagination on steroids” by London Free Press and “a masterpiece of physical comedy” by Theatre In London, critics rave for the charismatic James & Jamesy. A must-see performance on the international comedy circuit, the unstoppable duo, regarded as “one of the most popular fringe duos ever” (CBC), has been named Best of Fest (Orlando, Toronto, Winnipeg, Ottawa), Most Outstanding Show (London), Best Comedy (Victoria), Patrons’ Pick (London), among many other accolades.

  • The Perfect Croissant with Chef Stephan
    11:00-15:00
    2019.12.14

    The Perfect Croissant with Chef Stephan

    Crisp on the outside, tender within and soothingly rich and buttery throughout, the classic croissant is a joy to the senses. Believe it or not, you don’t need fancy ingredients or equipment to make your own.

    In this class you’ll work together with other students in a fun, hands-on environment led by Chef Stephan Schigas of Blacksmith Bakery. Take on the perfect technique and learn step-by-step croissant making, including the right way to laminate dough and how to roll the perfect croissant.

    • Learn fundamental skills for a lifetime of great baking
    • Work side-by-side with other students to prepare the perfect croissant
    • Interact with classmates and Chef Stephan for a rich learning experience
    • Classes are 3 1/2 – 4 hours, unless otherwise noted
    • Each student takes home what they make (If they don’t eat it first!)
    • Classes are held in our professional testing kitchen, 15 minutes drive from our artisanal bakeshop & café.

    NOTE

    Making croissants usually takes more than 6 hours, so we have done a bit of work for you to ensure you have warm, buttery pastries to enjoy at the end of your class. However, during the class you will learn all the proper steps and work needed to create your own croissants at home.

    CANCELATIONS

    We require 48 hours notice for attendee cancelations in order to offer you a credit for a future class – no refunds.

    In the case a class does not fill to 75% capacity it may be re-scheduled to a future date. If your class is re-scheduled you will be able to apply your credit towards any future class we offer if the rescheduled date does not work for you.
