“Soar Cabaret Nights are really a celebration of the young talent in our community.” Muffy McKay, Program Coordinator of the Allied Arts Council adds, “We have some returning performers from previous years but also some very exciting new comers.”
Amongst the new comers, the University of Lethbridge Gymfinity Aerials, Lethbridge’s very own circus troupe will be performing and Sydney Murdoch will be performing a new dance creation that she has choreographed. Hannah Rud who has assisted off-stage in previous years will be presenting her popular one woman show. Returning artists include the spoken word stylings of Griffin Cork, performance artist Kristin Krein, magician Ben Price and mentalist Jeff Newman. As well, Jeff Charlton will be bringing his award winning one act play, “Coming Home.”
Additional details: Tickets are $10 per evening OR purchase a Festival Pass for $50 and attend all the Cabaret Nights, the Visual Artist Reception and the Soar Symposium. Tickets are available at Casa, the AAC office on 7th Street and on-line through Eventbrite.

My Daughter’s Father, Sydney Murdoch
My Daughter’s Father is a glimpse into the loss of communication over the years, seasons and moments. Perhaps losing these words can be from an emotional block, a scar, but sometimes there is no conscious choice in the matter. One’s ability to find and use words slips away and with them goes the recollection of the past.
