Virtual Solitaire - Vancouver

1398 Cartwright Street
Vancouver, British Columbia
V6H 3R8

Daily from March 17, 2015 to March 29, 2015

Since Virtual Solitaire's 1997 debut and 2000 Vancouver Fringe run, technology has advanced exponentially, and so too has its ability to leave users feeling isolated, disconnected, and sometimes addicted. In Virtual Solitaire, Nathan is addicted to full immersion virtual reality. He's had the surgery, but can't afford the bandwidth anymore. He turns to testing games for cash, but gets trapped in one when the characters take over his brain and body-and he can no longer tell the difference between his virtual reality and his real life.

"So beautifully written and performed that it should stand as a blueprint for any solo artist." -Peter Birnie, The Vancouver Sun.

B.C. Cadet Honour Band - Burnaby

Michael J. Fox Theatre
Burnaby, British Columbia
V5J 2B7

Thursday, March 19, 2015

The 45-piece B.C. Cadet Honour Band is the pinnacle of achievement for cadet musicians, who have worked years to achieve a high level of performance. Many are multi-talented, playing several instruments or adding vocals to the concert. Competition to be part of the band is fierce and the experience is intense. Musicians learn a concert's worth of music in just three days and then tour the province performing each night in four different cities.

Featuring music from Disney's Frozen and The Hunger Games as well as a selection of military marches and a special Pipes & Drums performance, this one-night only free performance by B.C.'s cadet musicians should not be missed.
