  • Live Nation Vancouver 2012
    As half of “Boot Scootin’ Boogie” duo Brooks & Dunn, Ronnie Dunn has played everywhere from the arena to the rodeo, beer joints to casinos. His Texas twang and electric guitar chronicle 20 years of wide-ranging exploits on his self-titled debut solo album. After he and Kix Brooks played their last show together in 2010, Dunn set to work as the new album's sole producer and main songwriter. "This time around, I baked it,” he said. “I baked it and cooked it, and cooked it again.” His signature rowdy honky-tonk kicks through in the single “Let the Cowboy Rock,” and the poignant ballad of forgiveness, “Bleed Red," urges listeners to “turn the anger into water / let it slip through our hands.”

    During "Richard Scarry's Busytown: Busytown Busy," adorable critters from the best-selling books and highly rated CBC television series make their theatrical debut, enchanting preschoolers and postschoolers alike in an interactive, family-friendly musical adventure.

A barnyard of domesticated characters––including Huckle Cat (the problem solver), Sally Cat (the confident socialite), Lowly Worm (the worm who is lowly), and Sergeant Murphy (the safety dog)––enlists the audiences’ help to resolve minor mysteries and belt out sing-alongs about safety, imagination, and community spirit. With captivating picture-book sets and snuggle-ready costumes, children can immerse themselves in the Richard Scarry experience without the dangers of commercial breaks or paper cuts.

  • Instant Theatre
    Instant Theatre Company not only stages off-the-cuff improv shows, it instructs others in the art. "Our preference is to give you the overall experience," the company says on its website. This translates to classes that emphasize character, scene work, and story, the blend of which helps students develop comedic timing, learn team-building skills, and make up really great excuses when they forget their mother's birthday. The result: quick-witted shows that engage both the actors and the audience. And though the company focuses much of its energy on improv, it also embraces other comedic forms, namely sketch comedy taught by Kids in the Hall alum Kevin McDonald and standup classes helmed by festival regular and CTV star Adam Pateman.
