Rossland Light Opera Players presents
Finding a Wife for Gino
February 24 at 7 pm

Rossland Light Opera Players present A Two-Act Italian Musical Comedy Written and Directed by Jamie Santano.

Forty-year-old Gino Santucci isn’t married, much to the dismay of his mother, who wants more grandbabies.

When Gino Santucci’s family calls in a matchmaker, you know the situation is dire. Mamma’s wringing her hands. Old flames refuse to rekindle. And Gino’s buddy is sure he has the answer.

In this hilarious play written and directed by Rossland local Jamie Santano, everyone wants to help Gino. It’s time he was married and according to the family, he needs a woman who can cook, clean and comfort. And she’d better be Italian.

First presented last November in Rossland, this light-hearted romantic comedy is coming to The Bailey Theatre for one night only.

Tickets $25.
Adult content, not suitable for children. Presented by the Rossland Light Opera Players.


Sunday Cinema presents

I, Tonya
February 25 at 4:30 pm

The Royal Theatre, Trail

Based on unbelievable, but true events, I, TONYA is a darkly comedic tale of American figure skater, Tonya Harding, and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history.

In 1991, talented figure skater Tonya Harding became the first American woman to complete a triple axel during a competition. But, in 1994, her world came crashing down when her ex-husband conspired to injure Nancy Kerrigan, a fellow Olympic hopeful, in a poorly conceived attack that forces the young woman to withdraw from the national championship.

I, TONYA is an absurd and irreverent portrayal of Harding’s life and career, featuring an iconic turn by Margot Robbie as the fiery Harding, Sebastian Stan as her impetuous ex-husband Jeff Gillooly, and a scene-stealing performance from Allison Janney as her acid-tongued mother, LaVona Golden.
