Performance Notes

× The Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre Society proudly presents Chase Padgett's Nashville Hurricane on Wednesday, October 18 starting at 7:30pm. Nashville Hurricane is the first show in our 2017/18 Theatre Series.

Masterful storyteller and captivating entertainer Chase Padgett delivers the sequel to his virtuosic performance in Six Guitars, brought to our stage two years ago. Blues, Jazz, Rock, Classical, Folk and Country, this one-man play features a flurry of characters, blazing guitar work, and formidable tunes such as 'Devil Went Down to Georgia'. Slipping between mother, mentor, and the infamous guitar prodigy "Nashville Hurricane" himself, Padgett takes us on the road and pulls us through to the dark side of show biz.

With a degree in Music and world-class training in improv, Padgett dominates the stage with his presence. Having worked for Walt Disney World and Universal Studios writing and creating music, his understanding of technique and live performance is unmatched when it comes to entertaining the masses. Padgett premiered his first show, Six Guitars, in 2010 which gained him critical acclaim and success at Fringe festivals and beyond. A Vernon favorite in our 2015/16 season, this sequel is a definite do-not-miss.

Co-written by Padgett and Jay Hopkins, Nashville Hurricane has earned several awards including Best National Show and Best Original Work at Orlando Fringe, and Best of Fest at Edmonton Fringe. CBC has called it "a force of natureā€¦ don't let it pass by without you." This 75 minute one-man performance doesn't waver, bringing audiences from all over into immediate standing ovations.
