When I think of the roaring twenties, I think of flapper dresses and smoky cabarets with candle lit tables. The Kelowna Actors Studio transports you back to that era with their cabaret-style dinner theatre which features F Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby from May 31st to June 17th.
What better way to wind down from a day of exploring than to grab tickets to the show and enjoy the performances and the smooth sounds of classic jazz with a cold ‘Gin Rickey’ in hand? Of note are director Randy Leslie’s dreamscape stage set in front of a flapper’s tassels, and the jazz melodies of a local celebrity, Anna Jacyszyn, who brings the passion and music of the era to life.
If you are seeing the show on a Friday or Saturday, keep the 1920s vibe alive and check out nearby secretive speakeasy, Bar Norcino for a nightcap.
Tickets to The Great Gatsby range from $52-$112 and are available at KelownaTickets.com or the Kelowna Visitor Centre located at 544 Harvey Avenue.
A short walk away from each other, the Kelowna Actors Studio and Bar Norcino are both located in the heart of Kelowna's Cultural District.
