Things are starting to slow down again in Lethbridge again, but there are several local shows worth checking out this week, most of them early next week.
But this week, The Highway 3 Roots Revue Tour featuring the music of southern Albertan musicians Dave McCann, John Wort Hannam and Leeroy Stagger begin their annual winter tour of Alberta with stops in Lethbridge, Coleman, Calgary and Edmonton.
The tour begins at the Slice, Dec. 12.
They will be playing their own songs and playing on each other’s songs.
Tickets are $20. The show will begin at 8 p.m.
The Lethbridge Symphony Orchestra has something special for their third Masters series show of the season — they are bringing the world renown musical Les Miserables to the Southminster United Church. A fantastic cast of 40 including talented performers like Jessica Ens, Mark Campbell, George Gallant, David Mikuliak and Jordana Kohn ( appearing courtesy of Canadian Actors’ Equity Association) will be performing the musical based on the Victor Hugo Novel.
It is set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption – a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit.
Ex-convict Jean Valjean is hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever. It features the songs ‘I Dreamed A Dream’, ‘Bring Him Home,’ ‘One Day More’ and ‘On My Own’
