CCPA show gets off the ground

Canadian College of Performing Arts will stage Cities and Girls Feb. 19-21

The performance hall on Elgin Street is being transformed into an airport for the latest production at the Canadian College of Performing Arts.

Second year students of the Oak Bay school bring a never-before-seen production, Cities and Girls, adapted and directed by Christine Willes.

“We’re presenting a premiere of spoken-word musical theatre that is immersive, subversive, celebrates girls, celebrates boys, celebrates modernity, questions fate, authority, celebrity and takes the audience on a wild ride,” said Willes.

Cities and Girls is adapted for the stage from the works of internationally renowned Canadian spoken word writer/performer Myra Davies.

When a group of travellers find their flights grounded by cataclysmic weather, leaving home becomes a mythological sky dive through layers of modernity.

The CCPA Year Two students perform Feb. 19 to 21 at 7:30 p.m. with a 2 p.m. matinee Saturday at the CCPA Performance Hall, 1701 Elgin Rd. Tickets: $15 to $24. Call 250.595.9970 for tickets or go to ccpacanada.eventbrite.ca/ online.
