Art of Murder

April 12 to May 5

More twists than a corkscrew! That’s Joe DiPietro’s superbly-suspenseful and comedic murder mystery Art of Murder which opens on the Cannery Stage April 12!

The second show in Many Hats’ eleventh season will keep you on the edge of your seat trying to figure out who gets killed, why, and of course….whodunnit!

Jack Brooks (Chuck Peeren) is a successful but extremely irascible painter whose works sell for big money, but there’s a secret to his success! His wife Annie and her housekeeper Kate (played by Many Hats newcomers Maria Kadomtseva and Elizabeth Barry) know the secret….or do they? And just to up the ante surprise-wise Brook’s flamboyant art dealer Vincent (Isaac Gilbert)  has secrets of his own!

They all have motive for murder and ample opportunity….so, who gets killed? And who is the murderer?? You’ll have to check out Art of Murder to find out!

Art of Murder is directed by Jamie Eberle and produced by Eric Hanston, Marlena Dolan stage manages.

Art of Murder opens April 12 and runs until May 5. Performances are Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights at 8:00 Sunday matinees at 2:00.

Ryga Festival

Summerland’s Arts Festival – August 30 – September 3 

Inspired by George Ryga

Welcome to the Ryga Festival website! We have over 18 events, including concerts, theatrical performances, workshops, readings, and special events planned this year, from August 30 through September 3, led by our Artistic Director, Heather Davies.

The Ryga Festival, August 30 to Sepember 3, 2017, is over 18 events in Summerland, including jazz, blues, and acoustic concerts, theatre, storytelling and more, showcasing the best of Okanagan talent, and featuring nationally and internationally known performers, led by Artistic Director Heather Davies.

The Festival is inspired by playwright and author George Ryga, who lived in Summerland from 1963 until his death in 1987. Considered by many as Canada’s most important English-language playwright, most of Ryga’s creative output originated from his home in Summerland BC, including his ground-breaking play, The Ecstasy of Rita Joe, which was published to critical acclaim in 1967 and remains the best-selling Canadian play of all time.
