Bums skiing into Grand Forks

Attention ski bums and snow bums: Iron Mountain Theatre, direct from Rossland, B.C., is proud to present Ski Bum: The Musical.

Iron Mountain is the same group that brought Grand Forks the Andrews Sisters in 2010 and is the Kootenay’s newest professional theatre company. True fire for theatre arts burns in these young writers, composers, singers, actors and dancers.

Ski Bum is an original musical written by Tyler Bradley and Mark Pollard, with music and lyrics by singer extraordinaire Nadine Tremblay (composer of the 10 original songs for Ski Bum the Musical).

This all-new musical production tells the story of one ski bum nearly cresting over the hill, with all of his youthful energy intact and that’s the problem. Jeff Snowden needs to grow up a little and act a bit more responsibly if he wants things to go his way in adulthood. When an old flame at Big Snow Peak sparks a renewed interest in Jeff’s heart, he starts to consider the benefits of gaining a level of maturity.

With the help of a cultural anthropologist – studying the culture and practices of ski-bummery and a sometimes-not-so-nice head of ski patrol – he begins to see that he doesn’t have to give up skiing and having fun in order to evolve.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a musical buff, ski bum, ski buff, or musical bum, Ski Bum: The Musical is a fast-paced, shredding good time for the whole family.

With hummable tunes that span a wide range of genres, jokes that run the gamut of humour (from slapstick to high comedy) and 11 inspired performances by four actors, this show is guaranteed to be a hit.

Ski Bum: The Musical is coming to Grand Forks for one night only, Friday, Feb. 11 at 7:30 p.m. in the Grand Forks Secondary School auditorium.

Straightline it to the ticket outlet nearest you; this show is sure to be a sellout.

Tickets are available at the Source, Chain Reaction, Phoenix Mountain Ski Hill and Thistle Pot Gifts. In Christina Lake you can find tickets at Huckleberry Mountain Market.

This project is made possible through the generous support of Columbia Basin Trust and the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance and Christina Lake Arts and Artisan Society. See you at the show.
