“Shadows of Eternity” is a follow up to the smash production of “Escape the Darkness” in 2010. In late 2008, a member of Paws 2 Dance (the local canine freestyle club) came up with the unusual idea of doing a full length fantasy/drama with our dogs in a grand Theatre setting. It didn’t take long before many of the Lower Mainland Members, and Trainer/Choreographer Ray Underwood, got on-board and ‘Escape the Darkness’ was born! After a 2 year odyssey of Set Building, Costume Building and intense Rehearsals, the show debuted to a near sell out crowd at the Bell Centre for Performing Arts, in Surrey, BC. Response to the show was phenomenal! At the conclusion of the performance, all 850 members of the audience lept to their feet to give it a standing ovation! Since that time, we have been constantly asked when the next show was!
And, the answer is:
8pm Saturday Nov. 3, 2012
2pm. Sunday Nov. 4, 2012
“Shadows of Eternity”, directed and choreographed by Ray Underwood, will be a grand and colourful fantasy set in Ancient Egypt in which a young Pharaoh (played by Tristan) is kidnapped by Shadow Creatures and taken to their Tomb world. Cailan plays the Pharaoh’s little brother and another grade 11 student from LFAS , Erin Mozel, is the ballet dancer in the show.
It will include 20 canines and their owners, 4 of the best indoor kite fliers in the world,1 ballet dancer, a narrator and 1 protection dog. This spectacular production is an affordable activity for all ages from children to seniors. Tickets are $12 for children 12 and under, $27 for adults, and $22 for seniors. To purchase tickets go to:
