Performance Notes

× The Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre Society proudly presents Will Stroet and his Backyard Band on Sunday, October 22 at 3:00pm at the Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre for the first of our 2017/18 'First Stages' Series.

Cheer for libraries, rally for vegetables and do a whole lot of dancing with Will Stroet and his Backyard Band as he promotes literacy, imagination, and an active lifestyle. With fun and easy-to-learn actions and sing-along choruses, this show is a great way to get kids interacting and excited about music and learning. Bringing his new album "Wordplay" to the stage, the whole family will be singing along to funny puns, spoonerisms, anagrams, palindromes, rap and poetry!

Juno nominee and star of the CBC Kids television show "Will's Jams", Stroet started his career as an elementary school teacher. After releasing his first album in 2005 to great success, Stroet decided to pursue his musical passions full time in 2009 and started performing at festivals, schools and theatres across the country. Stroet has released six albums both in English and French, with his most recent album "Wordplay" receiving a 2017 Juno nomination. He's also received five WCMA nominations for best children's and Francophone recording, and two CFMA nominations.

Will Stroet and his Backyard Band brings participatory entertainment to our fun and light-hearted 'First Stages' Series. Dubbed our 'No Shushing Season', parents are encouraged to let their little ones dance, sing, and chat along with the performers without the usual stresses of keeping quiet in theatre seats. Bring the whole family for an afternoon of fun and let loose!
