At a recent keynote address to an early childhood education conference, acclaimed family entertainer, singer/songwriter, composer, actor, writer, author, TV host and keynote speaker Fred Penner delivered a simple, yet powerful message. “Never underestimate your ability to make a difference in the life of a child.”
A gentle giant with kind eyes and an undeniable ability to make you feel good about yourself, this musical master brings 25 years of commitment, consistency and depth to a career that skillfully blends the many genres of performing and communication. Dubbed “Mr. Multi-Media" by Billboard Magazine, his diverse repertoire includes a prolific 12 Children’s Albums, countless energetically packed live shows for throngs of eager audiences across North America, composing the music for APTN/YTV’s Tipi Tales, and writing the score and hosting the TV documentary The Simple Way (focused on the relevant, world-wide topic of voluntary simplicity). He has, without a doubt, established himself as a fundamental part of the North American family entertainment scene. And whether it’s through CDs, videos, books or television, his cornerstone philosophy remains the same: absolute trust that his work can make a difference.
His pre-music experience working with troubled youth set the stage for what was to come; providing an understanding of the trauma of child abuse and the ability of music to heal. Those learnings, along with the untimely passing of his 12- year-old sister with Down’s Syndrome and subsequent passing of his father a year later, sparked a period of deep soul-searching and life-changing decisions. Inspired by his sister’s pure love of music, the man who had planned to become an economist, made a choice to become a performer. Lucky for us, he did.
More than the music, the two-time Juno winner for Best Children’s Album Sing with Fred and eight-time nominee’s body of work is about energy and emotional connection. The guy who crawled magically out of that hollow log for 12 seasons and nearly 900 episodes in the hit CBC TV show Fred Penner’s Place receives fan mail to this day from some of the 55 million American viewers where the show ran for four years on the U.S.’s Nickelodeon. Always building on a common theme rooted in integrity and a “belief in what I can do” he has created a lasting impact that crosses the generations and continues to grow.
Fred Penner will be appearing at the North Peace Cultural Centre on Saturday, Feb 13th at 3:30 pm

Boundless is an exciting mixed repertory programme bursting with the themes of youth and love. Former National Ballet of Canada dancer and internationally renowned choreographer, Matjash Mrozewski, will partner with lauded Canadian composer Owen Belton to create a vital and potent new work that will tackle an issue relevant to today’s youth, igniting important dialogue. This piece is created in partnership with the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club and UBC Okanagan. Glas, by multiple award-winning choreographer Gabrielle Lamb, is an expertly crafted work inspired by the relentless river flow. This work showcases the fluidity and physical interplay of the dancers in an abundance of intricate combinations. In Studies of Cash, the company pays tribute to country legend Johnny Cash. Featuring a heartrending mix of Cash recordings, Orlando’s soulful, stylistic work explores the notion of confinement through a feast of styles: classical lyricism, folk-dance and rhythm n’ blues. Joshua Beamish will transport audiences to Renaissance Verona with his fresh, classical interpretation of the breathtaking balcony pas-de-deux between Shakespeare’s two star-crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet.
Bert Bowes Middle School presents The Phantom Tollbooth JR
Friday, Feb 26 @ 7PM
Adults $12, Students & Seniors $8, Children $5
The Phantom Tollbooth JR. tells the story of a ten-year-old named Milo, who is so bored with the world that nothing ever interests him, least of all the things or people that should. One day Milo discovers a large toy tollbooth sitting in his room. Upon driving through the Tollbooth’s gates, Milo commences a fantastic adventure which playfully draws inspiration from grammatical and mathematical concepts. Armed with a dictionary and pencil and accompanied by a faithful “watch” dog Tock, Milo must battle the demons of ignorance, re-unite the kingdoms of Dictionopolis and Digitopolis and achieve the "impossible" mission of returning two princesses to the Kingdom of Wisdom.
Throughout The Phantom Tollbooth JR. we see a young boy Milo learn ‘what you can do is often a matter of what you will do’ and experience how much better life can be when he engages in the world with curiosity and imagination.

Mar 4, 5, 10, 11, 12 @ 7:30PM
Mar 12 @ 1:00PM
Adults $20, Students & Seniors $17, Children $12
Based on the 1954 movie, 12 Angry Men. A 19-year-old man has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. "He doesn't stand a chance," mutters the guard as the 12 jurors are taken into the bleak jury room. It looks like an open-and-shut case—until one of the jurors begins opening the others' eyes to the facts. "This is a remarkable thing about democracy," says the foreign-born juror, "that we are notified by mail to come down to this place—and decide on the guilt or innocence of a man; of a man we have not known before. We have nothing to gain or lose by our verdict. We should not make it a personal thing." But personal it does become, with each juror revealing his or her own character as the various testimonies are re-examined, the murder is re-enacted and a new murder threat is born before their eyes! Tempers get short and arguments grow heated. The jurors' final verdict and how they reach it—in tense scenes that will keep you on the edge of your seat—add up to an experience you'll never forget.
