SURREY’S HOT SPOT FOR ART AND LIVE PERFORMANCE

FOUNDED BY THE CITY OF SURREY, 1967

Welcome to Surrey Civic Theatres: Surrey Arts Centre, where the offerings of the Surrey Spectacular Series are as varied and lively as the audiences. Take a break from your electronic devices and get on down to the theatre—it’s fun to go out! After all, pressing a button to “Like” something doesn’t compare to coming together with friends and neighbours to share in the energy of live performance!

Once again, Surrey Arts Centre welcomes three memory-making shows from Arts Club On Tour. The farcical fun of Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery kicks off the series, followed by the charming and quirky cabaret The (Post) Mistress, and Bittergirl: The Musical with girl-group music from the ‘60s to salve the pain of heartache. Lovers of comedy will be delighted by the offerings at all three venues of Surrey Civic Theatres throughout the season. If live music is more your jam then you won’t want to miss Jim Byrnes or Jimmy Rankin. And, for a delightful family outing, check out Axis Theatre’s Hamelin: A New Fable—a comedic, heart-tugging musical in which the actors use puppets and masks.

One highlight of the upcoming season is The Great Canadian Tire Money Caper, the story of how Corin Raymond funded the entire cost of engineering his double album, “Paper Nickels,” with Canadian Tire money—all handed to him by fans across the country. In hilarious and inspiring detail, Raymond describes how it all went down, followed by a hot set with the band!

So step away from the TV; close the laptop; turn off the phone. You won’t just “Like” this season at Surrey Arts Centre; You’ll “LOVE” it!
