7:30 pm Sleeping Beauty- Canada’s Ballet Jorgen @ Vernon Performing Arts Centre

After more than 25 successful years, Canada's Ballet Jorgen will create its own unique classical ballet rendition with its World Premiere Tour during the 2015-2016 season. This major new ballet tells the enchanting story of Aurora and her prince complete with its inherently magical qualities and dazzling choreography.

The fairy tale about a young woman placed under a spell to sleep for a hundred years only to be awakened by a kiss is an easily accessible story. It appeals to a child's imagination and holds a special place in the hearts of adults. The underlying theme is the tug between the forces of good (the Lilac Fairy) and evil (Carabosse), serving as an important thread to the plot. Told in three acts, the ballet benefits from the character development and technical expertise for which Canada's Ballet Jorgen is known.

7:30 pm to 12:00 am Ivan Coyote

Ivan Coyote is the award-winning author of ten books, the creator of four short films, and has released three CDs that combine storytelling with music. Ivan is a seasoned stage performer and long-time road dog, and over the last eighteen years has become an audience favourite at storytelling, writer's, film, poetry, and folk music festivals from Anchorage to Amsterdam.
The Globe and Mail newspaper called Coyote "a natural-born storyteller" and the Ottawa Xpress once said that "Coyote is to Canadian literature what kd lang is to country music: a beautifully odd fixture."
Ivan often grapples with the complex and intensely personal issues of gender identity in their work, as well as topics such as family, class, social justice and queer liberation, but always with a generous heart, a quick wit, and the nuanced and finely-honed timing of a gifted raconteur. Ivan's stories remind of us of our own fallible and imperfect humanity while at the same time inspiring us to change the world

7:30 pm The Sheepdogs @ Vernon Performing Arts Centre

Trends come and go, styles fall in and out of fashion, but The Sheepdogs remain steadfast in their commitment to rock n' roll excellence. Since their inception, the band has always sought to play the kind of music they themselves love: "Pure, simple, good-time music," as singer/guitarist Ewan Currie puts it. It's no surprise, then, that the band's fifth LP, Future Nostalgia, is firmly rooted in the rock tradition that listeners have come to expect from the boys.

From their cramped Saskatchewan jam space to gold and platinum records and shows with rock icons, The Sheepdogs haven't strayed from their goal of sharing pure, passionate rock n' roll with anyone who'll listen - and Future Nostalgia is packed with it.
