'Twas the Night Before Christmas

Spotlight Kids' Series

$12 All Ages

The Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre Society proudly presents Dufflebag Theatre’s production of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas on Sunday, December 9, 2018 at 2:00pm at the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre. ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas is the first show in the 2018/19 SPOTLIGHT Kids' Series.

Everyone can’t wait for Santa’s arrival on Christmas Eve, even with visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads! But somewhere along the line, the jolly old elf seems to have mislaid his sack of presents. What’s worse is that Old Man Winter is determined to stop him! Will Christmas have to be cancelled? Not if Mrs. Claus and the reindeer can help! The Nearly World-Famous DuffleBag Theatre company expands the beloved Clement Clarke Moore poem in fun new directions just in time for the holidays! And the best part? YOU could be the main character!

Since starting in 1992, DuffleBag Theatre has performed for audiences throughout Canada and the United States, as well as internationally. Lead by Artistic Director Marcus Lundgren, DuffleBag performs over 600 shows a year. Rather than merely offering a “standard” production for audiences to see, the troupe picks out volunteers from their audience to fill the roles of main characters in each of their productions, making for a fully interactive and largely non-scripted production that can go in one of multiple directions on any given performance.

Not only does DuffleBag have the ability to appeal to a younger audience due to their reliance upon the re-telling of “classic” tales, Lundgren feels the troupe is also easily able to win the hearts of the parents who attend their shows. “We encourage everybody to come out to the show and have a good time. People can definitely expect a fun, family-oriented evening when they attend one of our shows,” Lundgren says. “What we offer is something that works for people of all ages.”

ZANIAC Comedy Show!
Alex Zerbe's

ZANIAC Comedy Show!

Spotlight Kids' Series

$12 All Ages

The Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre Society proudly presents Alex Zerbe’s Zaniac Comedy Show on Sunday, January 20, 2019 at 2:00pm at the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre. Alex Zerbe’s Zaniac Comedy Show is the second show in the 2018/19 SPOTLIGHT Kid’s Series.

With captivating amounts of energy, Alex Zerbe moves like a rubber band from one end of the stage to the other in his show Alex Zerbe’s Zaniac Comedy Show. Beatboxing, juggling, dancing, singing, music and magic are just a few of the things that led Piers Morgan of America’s Got Talent to call Alex, “the total package.”
 
The “Professional Zaniac,” who’s been cracking jokes onstage for almost 15 years, zigzags between physical stunts and non-stop comedy. During the show vegetables are sliced in half by flying playing cards, flaming torches and bowling balls are juggled with ease and every audience volunteer leaves the stage in triumph.  

A self-described “human cartoon,” his show isn’t only for the kids in the family. “I try to make my show like the movie Shrek, super entertaining for the kids but there’s a whole other level of comedy for teens and adults,” says Zerbe.

Formerly of the award-winning duo Brothers from Different Mothers, Zerbe is a Hacky Sack World Champion, was voted The Pacific Northwest’s Funniest Prop Comic and is currently ranked Seattle’s 3rd Best Air Guitarist. He’s performed everywhere from cruise ships and comedy clubs to prime-time television in three countries, including “America’s Got Talent!” and “Last Comic Standing.”
