The Flin Flon Arts Council has scheduled a full list of performances for this coming year, including a mix of local and regional talent through this fall and winter.
The first show of the year from the Arts Council is set for Oct. 23, when Manitoba folk-jazz bandleader Woody Holler will start the season (and end Flin Flon Culture Days) with a performance at the Flin Flon Community Hall. Holler was supposed to play in Flin Flon pre-pandemic - his first show was cancelled due to inclement weather, with a second date in spring 2020 later cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The schedule will continue Nov. 14 with an original musical theatre piece by Flin Flon-born dancer and choreographer Janelle Hacault, actor/musician Jeremy Walmsley and Mark Kolt called Love, Loss and the Desire to Connect. The piece has been developed by the three artists and will premiere at the Flin Flon Community Hall. Next up is the on-stage return of the Ham Sandwich drama group, performing an as-of-yet unannounced production, one of two the troupe will host this coming winter.
The Flin Flon Community Choir will host their annual Christmas show Dec. 4, once more at the Flin Flon Community Hall. That will be followed by a cabaret performance Jan. 15.
The Royal Manitoba Theatre Company will perform next on Feb. 13, in another performance that has been rescheduled from before COVID-19 hit. The second Ham Sandwich show will take place Mar. 11-12.
Two more Manitoba arts institutions will take to the community hall in late April. First, the Royal Winnipeg Ballet will come to town for an April 23 show, followed a week later by the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra. The final show of the Arts Council’s slate will be the Community Choir Spring Concert, currently scheduled for May 15.
All plans may be changed before the scheduled dates, depending on COVID-19 situations, related health orders or any other outstanding circumstances. Current Manitoba health orders will be applicable for all shows.
