Last night I had the pleasure to attend the VIP opening night of the 5th season of SS Sicamous Follies (Five). It was spectacular! The talent they have brought in for this musical montage is truly impressive. They performed non-stop for more than two hours to a packed house. As if the talent wasn't enough, the venue, on the historic SS Sicamous paddlewheeler steam ship, added an abundance of flair to the show.
The show consisted of brief excerpts from classic musicals from the early 20th century right up to some of today's most famous songs. The range of the cast was tested thoroughly and they came through with flying colours. A bonus was the intermittent sketches performed by Glen Cairnes, manager of the SS Sicamous, who displayed a comic talent I didn't know he possessed.
Very impressive show and an absolute must-see!
