If you’ve been finding yourself shuttered up at home this winter, get ready to be brought out of your funk — into the good kind of funk! Winterruption is a series of indoor live performances taking place across the country with the goal of gathering people together for a good time, even when the holidays are over and the weather is nasty. This year marks the inaugural first year of Swift Current’s very own Winterruption Festival, which will be taking place from January 23rd to January 25th at the local Lyric Theatre.
The Festival will be kicking off on Thursday, January 23rd with a performance of Postcards At The Speed of Light where local presenters have 20 seconds to tell a story about an image shown onstage. The challenge is for these performers to say everything they want to say before the next slide appears - there are 20 images in all. On Friday night, check out Derek Selinger’s "The Gift.” If you haven’t heard of “The Gift”, it’s an incredible show of magic and illusion presented as a brilliant theatrical performance. The show features technology, video projections on screens, and state of the art sound and lighting to bring you the ultimate magical experience up close and personal. There will be sleight of hand, illusions, and even mind reading! You certainly won’t want to miss this amazing showcase. But the fun doesn’t stop there! The next night — Saturday, January 25th — will be the final night of the festival, when this fabulous event wraps up with a rocking performance by The Original Wailers, presented by Blenders.
You can pick and choose which events you want to check out — or go to them all! Tickets to Postcards At The Speed of Light are $25, tickets to Derek Salinger’s “The Gift” are $35, and tickets to The Original Wailers are $45. If you can’t choose just one, you can purchase a pass to all three events for just $90! Tickets are available at the Pharmasave in Swift Current.
