Vernon is host to a few theatre and outdoor film gems that are great fun for the entire family.  Whether you’re looking to explore the theatre and film scene in the city itself or the surrounding region, there’s a little bit of something for everyone in Vernon this summer.

The Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre

The Performing Arts Centre is the city’s newest and largest entertainment venue sporting one of the most comfortable auditoriums in the province.  Constructed in 2001, the Centre was built with a state of the art Meyer Mina digital sound system, which means musical concerts are incredibly rich at this venue.  This Wednesday August 6th, the centre will host the Italian pianist Alessandra Ammara, playing pieces from her new album.  Here’s a sample of what you can expect:


Caravan Farm Theatre

Only 30 km. north of Vernon lies a theatrical national treasure – the Caravan Farm Theatre.  Billed as a “broadly populist theatre with sophisticated execution,” the company has performed in every corner of their 80-acre farm, from the barn to amongst scenic stands of aromatic Ponderosa Pine.  This summer, the company is putting on The Highly Tragical Comedy of Punch & Judy, the story of a couple who has been performing the same puppet show for 350 years (how awful!)  Growing tired of the puppet show’s crude and unrefined humour, Judy runs away with the refined actor Oedipus Rex (named after the tragic Greek figure).  What happens next is an inspiring journey of compassion and the unfolding of a beautiful character.  People of all ages will find something to laugh or perhaps cry at in this show.

Starlight Drive In

Believe it or not, nearby Enderby B.C. hosts North America’s largest drive-in movie screen.  This summer, The Starlight will be showing double features every night for the low price of $10 per person or $6 for children ages 4-12.  Starting on Friday August 1st, Planes: Fire & Rescue will play first at 8:45pm followed by Maleficent at 10:30pm.
