The Legend of George Jones: featuring Duane Steele

Spruce Grove, Alberta
2017-11-04 To 2017-11-04 MST

Be part of a special tribute to the man considered to be one of the greatest country singers of all time – George Jones. In a career that lasted more than 50 years, “the Possum” evolved from a young honky-tonker to a music icon as he recorded more than 150 albums and became the symbol of traditional country music. His music continues to inspire artists of all genres. Award-winning singer-songwriter Duane Steele and his band will take you on a journey of George’s life through stories and songs. Duane will sing the hits that spanned five decades, from his duets with Tammy Wynette, to the No.1 country song of all time “He Stopped Loving Her Today”. You’ll also hear the stories of George’s life, which echoed the country songs he sang – filled with success, failure, hard-drinking, and heartbreak.

Ms. Sugarcoat

Lethbridge, Alberta
2018-02-21 To 2018-02-24 MST

She’ssss back!!! We first met Ms. Sugarcoat at the Lethbridge Fringe Festival. New West liked her so much; we’ve asked her back. Ms. Sugarcoat is a hilarious original show written and performed by Alice Nelson. Alice has worked for New West in the past and we are thrilled to have her on the New West stage. Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, Ms. Sugarcoat is eager to mold the young minds of the future. But university textbooks didn’t prepare her for helicopter parents, entitled high-needs students, and political correctness at the cost of telling the truth. When Pat the Beaver shows up, Ms. Sugarcoat delicately controlled world threatens to implode.
