A local organization dedicated to the furthering and promotion of the performing arts in Cranbrook is showing its appreciation to the sponsors who help it in its mission with an evening of fun and dance this upcoming Saturday, Nov. 21.
The Fisher Peak Performing Arts Society, who host such events as Summer Sounds Concert Series and Dancing in the Park, is holding a Sponsor-Appreciation dance at the Cranbrook Golf Club, featuring local rock bands The Testers and Split Shift.
“This event gives us the opportunity to show our appreciation to our sponsors from over the last year, to recognize them publicly, and to give members and non-members an opportunity to meet them and to learn some of the aims and goals of the society,” said Dave Prinn, with FPPAS.
The Fisher Peak Performing Arts Society was founded two years ago by a group of local performing artists. Its main goal is to promote the performing arts in the Cranbrook area — whether it be music, spoken word, dance or theatre — through exposure and through partnerships with like-minded groups. Prinn mentioned the Key City Theatre, the City of Cranbrook, Columbia Basin Trust and numerous commercial organizations. FPPAS puts artists and venues together, and helps ensure artists get the compensation they deserve.
Doors at the Cranbrook Golf Club open at 7 p.m., and local band Split Shift kicks off the music at 8 p.m., followed by The Testers. Music goes to midnight. There will be a cash bar, and a late night snack presented around 10.
Tickets — $10 for members, $15 for non-members — are available at Lotus Books or on line at Snapd.com
