Ascending Afghanistan: Rising Women

Friday December 15 - 7:30pm

On August 6, 2015, a team of 13 young female Afghan climbers came together for a historic moment. They set out to become the first women to reach an unclimbed peak in stunning Panjshir province with the assistance of experienced climbers from Ascend, a non-profit organization that teaches leadership skills through athletics.

VICE Impact followed these women along their perilous journey and documented their goal of changing the narrative about the heights women are able to achieve and to conquer the complex social boundaries of being a young woman in Afghanistan.

Watch the Vice produced documentary and meet some of the team in person and by video link for a live Q&A afterward.

Ascend Athletics

This event is a fundraiser for Ascend: Leadership Through Athletics and all proceeds will go to supporting future projects by Ascend to change the perception about women and gender equality in Afghanistan.

Tickets: $10 advance, $12 at the door

6th Annual Coffee House Extravaganza Hootenanny

Friday December 29, 2017 - 7:30pm

The Revelstoke Coffee House 6th annual Extravaganza Hootenanny features two brilliant Southern Interior BC duos.  The first – in no particular order – has yet to feature a Revelstoke Coffee House, but at long last we will be graced by Salmon Arm’s Chicken-Like Birds.  Bear witness to the well-polished, fun and funky Jasmin Fredrickson and Ari Lantela who play original country blues, swing and rag-time.  The second feature, coming from the charming town of Kaslo, are an inspiring wife-husband / mother-father of three / singer-songwriter duo called The Eisenhauers.  They play a sparing and emotive repertoire of original music, much of which bears the theme of moving from the big city to a small rural town in the mountains.  Also on offer will be some short performances by local favourites!
Going into its eighth season, the Revelstoke Coffee House is the primary community event celebrating local talent and live acoustic music.  The monthly Revy Coffee House, running from fall to the spring at The United Church (besides December), welcomes performers to sign up and play, audience members to mingle, sit and enjoy, and features established acts from Revelstoke and beyond.

Tickets: $10

God is a Scottish Drag Queen by Mike Delamont

Thursday April 12, 2018 - 7:30pm

This highly acclaimed one-man comedy has become the most popular show on the Canadian Fringe Festival circuit. Written and performed by a 15 time ‘Best of the Fest’ winner and three-time Canadian Comedy Award Nominee, the star in this play is everyone’s favourite deity. Dressed in a floral power suit, the omnipotent playwright as the Almighty descends from above to skewer everything from Justin Bieber to the Pope. 

 In “one of the funniest stand-up routines ever,” according to the Orlando Weekly, God has chosen to present himself to the audience in order to clear up some misunderstandings about himself and his role as the Creator. “Hilarious, divinely and wickedly funny,” (Montreal Gazette), this show is a way for God to let off some steam about what humans have been doing and not doing, and to share how he will stay calm regardless.

Tickets: $20
