B.C. folk singer John McLachlan will headline the first concert to reopen the newly renovated theatre at the North Peace Cultural Centre in September.
McLachlan will present his Call It Home! show on Sept. 21, a "musically dramatic multimedia journey that re-ignites glowing memories of summer vacations, explores the pains of growing up and sheds light on the realities of adulthood with its realization that we are all part of a bigger ebb and flow."
"From a poignant memory of his dad’s 8mm home movies to a story about the first car ferry and its captain, this concert is part nostalgia, part history and part present day," the cultural centre said in a news release.
"Images and movie clips weave throughout, adding a richness and authenticity recognizable to every childhood summer holiday spent on islands, lakes or countryside. Call It Home traces a personal yet universal journey of appeal to all ages."
This will be the first performance in the centre’s newly renovated 400-seat theatre. There will be an exclusive VIP tour of the renovated theatre and mezzanine prior to the performance.
"You will experience the show in brand new theatre seats, new carpet and paint, and with upgraded stage and audience lighting. We wanted to really enhance the audience experience with this renovation,” said Oliver Hachmeister, operations manager.
“After 27 years, this update is a very needed change and the audience is going to love the new theatre.”
