Last Monday at the Movies presents

The Big Trip to Italy

Michael Winterbottom's largely improvised 2010 film, The Trip, took comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon-or semifictionalized versions thereof-on a restaurant tour around northern England. In this witty and incisive follow-up, Winterbottom reunites the pair for a new culinary road trip, retracing the steps of the Romantic poets' grand tour of Italy and indulging in some sparkling banter and impersonation-offs. Rewhetting our palates from the earlier film, the characters enjoy mouthwatering meals in gorgeous settings from Liguria to Capri while riffing on subjects as varied as Batman's vocal register, the artistic merits of "Jagged Little Pill," and, of course, the virtue of sequels.

Winterbottom trains his camera to capture the idyllic Italian landscape and the gastronomic treasures being prepared and consumed while keeping the film centered on the crackling chemistry between the two leads. The Trip to Italy effortlessly melds the brilliant comic interplay between Coogan and Brydon into quieter moments of self-reflection, letting audiences into their insightful ruminations on the nuances of friendship and the juggling of family and career. The result is a biting portrait of modern-day masculinity. (c) IFC Films

Schools out Productions NWSS Performing Arts Dept. presents

Footloose the Musical

The long-awaited production is the fourth show for the team that brought you "Annie" in 2008, Bye Bye Birdie" in 2009, and "Grease" in 2011. NWSS Musicals never cease to amaze audiences, with youth showing that they have what it takes to captivate with exceptional performances. "Footloose The Musical" is sure to be a highlight of the spring for lovers of musical theatre in the community of New Westminster and beyond!

One of the most explosive rock musicals in recent memory, Footloose tells the story of a small town struggling with changing times. Ren and his mother have moved from Chicago to a small farming community where they soon discover there are strict rules including a ban on dancing, instituted by the local preacher in an effort to control the town's youth. When the preacher's rebellious daughter sets her eyes on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to ruin Ren's reputation with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges is one of a community dealing with a loss and a young man aching for the father who walked out on him. It's a story of the courage, wisdom and energy of youth coupled with the grace and thoughtfulness of the older generations.

Tickets: Adults $18, Senior, students and children $15

A G Productions presents

THE IRISH ROVERS

The Irish Rovers 50th Anniversary Tour

The Irish Rovers celebrate 50 Years of Music with a tour and CD Release of “The Irish Rovers, 50 Years” triple CD set which will be available at concerts. The band was founded in Canada in Toronto but first became known on American television in the 60s. As guests on The Tonight Show, The Smothers Brothers Show, Mike Douglas Show, The Virginian, The Dating Game (George Millar actually won the date), they gained experience before hosting their first of three television series “The Irish Rovers Show” in the 70’s. At that time, fans enjoyed their early hits like Black Velvet Band, The Unicorn, Whisky on a Sunday and Wasn't That A Party.

Now with a career spanning 50 years they’re slowing down the touring – ironically at a time when they’re getting some of the best reviews of their career:

“Sold out in Tallahassee - All the years of touring and playing haven’t eroded the band’s ferocious chops. Those musicians are so tight. They’re virtuoso's!” Tallahassee Democrat

"Sold out in Orange County - When the band was jamming through traditional Irish sets you could close your eyes and imagine yourself at a ceili in a pub on the shamrock shore with a pint and a rocking-tight house band of the lads." Orange County Register

"Sold out in San Luis - Impossible to sit still as they play song after merry song off the pages of Ireland’s historic songbook. What an unforgettable experience! The Irish Rovers excite even the most discerning audience member into having a rip-roaring good time." Foundation for the Performing Arts

At the concert, fans will enjoy a mix of their hits, rollicking Jigs and Reels, plus hilarious stories from their years on the road.

Legends of RocknRoll (TM) presents

Buddy Holly and the Beatles

The Early Years of Rock'n'Roll


The Legends of Rock n’ Roll presents two great attractions on one spectacular show…
Zachary Stevenson returns to the stage as Buddy Holly, and he is joined by the knockout Beatles tribute band… The Fab Fourever.
It’s a well-known secret that without the influence of Buddy Holly… the Beatles may not have existed, as Paul McCartney stated; “John and I started to write songs because of Buddy Holly.” The Beatles name also comes from John wanting a bug-themed name similar to Buddy Holly’s “Crickets.”
Now some 50 years later… Buddy Holly, the man that left such a huge impression on what is arguably the biggest pop phenomenon of all time, is being celebrated together with the Beatles through their music by two world-class tribute attractions… Zachary Stevenson performing as Buddy Holly and the Fab Fourever performing as the Beatles.
Stevenson has performed as Buddy in no less than 10 different productions of ‘The Buddy Holly Story’, and is currently being applauded for his leading role of the hit musical “Red Rock Diner” at Vancouver’s Arts Club Theatre. (Michael Buble starred in the original production)
The Fab Fourever have been wowing audiences throughout Western Canada with their live renditions of all the Beatles hits. This show will pay homage to the music of the 50’s and early 60’s with the Fab Fourever performing songs from 1960 – 1965, songs from the Cavern Club in Liverpool, the Ed Sullivan Show, and their ‘64/’65 World Tours.
“We’ve been out to see Zachary play as Buddy and every time we do we are asked ‘why don’t we team up?’” says Jody Tennant who plays the role of Paul McCartney in the group. Kevin Davey as John Lennon ads “and then Zachary came out to one of our shows and the audience were asking the same thing.”
As Holly, Stevenson will be performing all of Buddy’s huge hits such as… “Maybe Baby”, “That’ll Be The Day”, “Peggy Sue”, “Everyday”, “Oh Boy” and so many more.
The FAB FOUREVER counter with memorable tunes such as; “She Loves You”, “I Want to Hold Your Hand”, “I Saw Her Standing There”, “Please Please Me”, “Twist and Shout”, “A Hard Day’s Night”, and countless others from the early 60’s.
This is a musical pairing that could never have happened until now… enjoy the music of two of the greatest rock’n’roll artists of all time… together on one spectacular show!
Buddy Holly and The Beatles… plus special added attraction… Rock’n’Roll Diva Molly Dee!
