Momentum Youth Arts Movement presents

Jordan Klassen and Good for Grapes

Jordan Klassen
Is there such a thing as unsentimental sincerity? If so, this could be it. A resonate warmth carries Klassen’s crafted, literate lyrics through vivid images and stories. Repentance juxtaposes a multi-textured simplicity with a trembling confidence and a fresh familiarity. Playful and wise, vast and intimate, the album travels from the jubilant in “Go to Me” and “Piano Brother” to the quiet intensity of “The Horses are Stuck” and “Strengthen Me With Raisins.” These are songs that fuse melody and poetry, stinging the imagination and summoning forgotten emotion.
Having been named a Canadian act to watch in 2014 by CBC Music, and with an upcoming showcase at SXSW and other festivals in the works, this year is expected to be a big one for Klassen.

Good For Grapes formed in September of 2010, after a group of friends took a trip to Victoria, BC for some modest busking. Drawing unexpected crowds, this young and aspiring band took form; an original and talented six-piece group, with an array of harmonizing voices and instruments. Hailing from Vancouver, BC, this folk / alternative act has been gaining momentum ever since they stepped into the music scene. Their live stage performance has evolved into an incredibly active, folk stomping and inviting energy; always resulting in an extremely enthusiastic and involved audience. Most recently, at the end of 2013 Good For Grapes released their debut album "Man On The Page", recorded by Juno-Award winning producer Colin Stewart. Soon after this, and after winning fourth place in 102.7 The Peak's "Peak Performance Project", the band signed with Pheromone Recordings. In 2014 Good for Grapes once again will be competing in the Peak Performance Project.

Presented by the Arts Council of New Westminster and produced by Massey Theatre, Momentum Youth Arts Festival is programmed, organized and driven by youth. The Momentum Youth Panel consists of seven youth from New Westminster steering the arts programming for the festival. The key community partners supporting the youth’s efforts are; Arts Council of New Westminster, Massey Theatre, NWSS Fine Arts Department, City of New Westminster Youth Services, and SD 40 Community Schools.

$15 in advance. $20 at the door.

Team Dance Canada presents

2nd Annual Gala For Gold Showcase Fundraiser

The Canadian National Dance Team returns to the Massey Theatre for the 2nd Annual Gala for Gold Showcase and Fundraiser!

Comprised of 40 of BC's most elite dancers, they are headed to Poland in December to defend their title at the international Dance Organizations (IDO) World Championships. The event is known as the "Olympics of Dance" and the team will face off against 23 nations for gold, silver & bronze medals. Sadly, the team does not receive any government funding, so it falls upon the shoulders of our dances and their families to raise the approx. $4,000 each to represent our country at the prestigious event. Dancers of this caliber have dedicated their entire lives to training and are as flexible as gymnasts, as graceful as figure skaters and train as hard as any Olympic athlete!

Headed by choreographer Danielle Gardner of "So You Think You Can Dance Canada", they have high hopes of reaching the podium and making Canada proud!
Gala for Gold will feature the team performing the pieces they will be competing with in Poland and will be joined by many of BC's most talented guest performers. Adding to the excitement of the evening, are silent and live auctions with dozens of fabulous items for you to bid on!

Last Monday at the Movies presents

The Big Trip to Italy

LAST MONDAY AT THE MOVIES
Michael Winterbottom's largely improvised 2010 film, The Trip, took comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon-or semifictionalized versions thereof-on a restaurant tour around northern England. In this witty and incisive follow-up, Winterbottom reunites the pair for a new culinary road trip, retracing the steps of the Romantic poets' grand tour of Italy and indulging in some sparkling banter and impersonation-offs. Rewhetting our palates from the earlier film, the characters enjoy mouthwatering meals in gorgeous settings from Liguria to Capri while riffing on subjects as varied as Batman's vocal register, the artistic merits of "Jagged Little Pill," and, of course, the virtue of sequels. Winterbottom trains his camera to capture the idyllic Italian landscape and the gastronomic treasures being prepared and consumed while keeping the film centered on the crackling chemistry between the two leads. The Trip to Italy effortlessly melds the brilliant comic interplay between Coogan and Brydon into quieter moments of self-reflection, letting audiences into their insightful ruminations on the nuances of friendship and the juggling of family and career. The result is a biting portrait of modern-day masculinity. (c) IFC Films

Schools out Productions NWSS Performing Arts Dept. presents

Footloose the Musical

The long-awaited production is the fourth show for the team that brought you "Annie" in 2008, Bye Bye Birdie" in 2009, and "Grease" in 2011. NWSS Musicals never cease to amaze audiences, with youth showing that they have what it takes to captivate with exceptional performances. "Footloose The Musical" is sure to be a highlight of the spring for lovers of musical theatre in the community of New Westminster and beyond!

One of the most explosive rock musicals in recent memory, Footloose tells the story of a small town struggling with changing times. Ren and his mother have moved from Chicago to a small farming community where they soon discover there are strict rules including a ban on dancing, instituted by the local preacher in an effort to control the town's youth. When the preacher's rebellious daughter sets her eyes on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to ruin Ren's reputation with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges is one of a community dealing with a loss and a young man aching for the father who walked out on him. It's a story of the courage, wisdom and energy of youth coupled with the grace and thoughtfulness of the older generations.

Tickets: Adults $18, Senior students and children $15
