Sister Act is the feel-good musical comedy smash based on the hit 1992 film. Sing Hallelujah for this new, ridiculously fun, feel-good musical that will have you jumping to your feet! Delores Van Cartier, a ‘wanna be’ Las Vegas diva’s life takes a surprising turn when she witnesses a crime and the cops hide her in – where else – a convent! Under the suspicious and watchful eye of Mother Superior, Delores wins the sisters’ hearts, and helps them find their voices as she unexpectedly discovers her own. Can we get an AMEN!

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.
