Tom & Kalissa Landa

Tom & Kalissa Landa
When: Wed, Oct 23, 2024 @ 7:30 pm
Where: Prince of Wales Cultural & Recreation Centre
Tom & Kalissa will draw on the vast catalogue of their 3 bands, as well as original compositions penned specifically for this project. You will be treated to an array of genres, like Celtic, Folk, Singer-Songwriter, Latin, Mexican, and Roots music sung in both English and Spanish to represent their respective Mexican and Chilean heritages. In addition, they will lean on folk musical idioms, such as Celtic, Roots, and Americana. Tom and Kalissa have a lovely vocal harmony blend and draw the listener in with great songs played on fiddle, guitar, and jarana (Mexican 8 string guitar). Perhaps one of the most endearing things about the couple is their relaxed and genuine stage banter, and the stories about the songs.

Burnt Thicket Theatre presents Every Brilliant Thing
When: Wed, Apr 2, 2025 @ 7:30 pm
Where: Assiniboia Composite High School
Experience the hit comedy about depression & gratitude: EVERY BRILLIANT THING, by Duncan Macmillan, with Jonny Donahoe, starring Sarah Robertson. "You’re seven years old. Mum’s in hospital. Dad says she’s ‘done something stupid’. She finds it hard to be happy. You start a list of everything worth living for. 1. Ice Cream. 2. Rollercoasters. 3. Peeing in the lake and nobody knows... You leave the list on her pillow. You know she's read it because she's corrected your spelling." Twenty years & thousands of things later, the list takes on a life of its own. This astonishingly funny, unforgettable solo performance dives deep into mental health & the lengths we go to for those we love. Based on true & untrue stories. "Hilarious... one of the funniest plays you’ll ever see." -The Guardian

With a mix of catchy originals and contemporary songs reimagined in driving swing, the band’s performance delivers as both classic and fresh.
