VICTORIA - Premier Gordon Campbell showed why he's everybody's favorite visitor this week, rolling into Kelowna for a 30-minute speech and showering some $65 million on the region before guests finished dessert.
Manni Dhemi was smiling broadly on Monday afternoon, rapidly circling his body close to the floor, his legs folded underneath him while keeping his balance -- and the beat of an "Easternized" version of Pretty Woman. Several male dancers dressed in brightly coloured satin shirts with matching sashes were waving their arms, shaking their legs and moving in unison as one fluid motion. Dhemi's dance demo is aptly called the coffee grinder.
I laughed till I cried. Theatre North West's production of Here on the Flight Path is funny. Really funny. Toronto-based actor Melodee Finlay sailed her way through three character transformations as Faye, Angel and Gwen in this hilarious romantic comedy that saw the actor take on the personality, dress, home decor and mannerisms of three delightful women. She gave a memorable performance Friday night -- truly a hard act to follow, although TNW never seems at a loss for talent.
