This season’s music offerings include several artists known for delivering unforgettable performances, including Skerryvore, Five Alarm Funk, Hawksley Workman, and Jill Barber, to name a few. Additionally, The Great Canadian Road Trip returns with a star-studded country lineup featuring Jason McCoy, Chad Brownlee and Jason Blaine. Musicians making their Arden Theatre debut include Frazey Ford, The Black Opry, Kaia Kater, Basia Bulat, The Paperboys, Bel & Quinn, and Blue Moon Marquee.

Comedy is well represented this season, which includes two nights of laughs with CBC’s The Debaters, where comics go toe-to-toe in a battle of laughs and logic. Comedian, writer and actor Aparna Nancherla will share the dry and whimsical sense of humour that has earned her featured sets on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and Late Night with Seth Meyers. Finally, the cast of The Irrelevant Show return for a 20-year reunion show that features their best sketches from the past two decades!


Cinephiles can join us as we journey to remote vistas and get up-close and personal with adrenaline-packed action sports with The Banff Centre Mountain Film Festival World Tour. Then, documentary storytelling and live music converge in On The River with Asani & Maria Dunn. This 60-minute live performance and video ballad tells the story of the Cree, Dene and Métis peoples’ community of Fort McKay, through the lens of the life of former chief Dorothy McDonald-Hyde.

Ballet Kelowna: The Cowboy Act Suite & Other Works will deliver a stunning evening of contemporary ballet. This high-energy program promises to please a wide range of spectators, with a vibrant selection of music to match. Expect a soundtrack that includes Jeremy Dutcher, Dean Martin, Perry Como, Rosemary Clooney, Sarah Vaughn, and Mohawk singer/songwriter Tom Wilson.
