The Ski Bums come out in Golden

Ski Bum the musical will come to the Golden Civic Centre on Feb. 2 and 3.

The Ski Bums are coming to town for two live shows at the Golden Civic Centre.

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. Iron Mountain Theatre (I.M.T.) is proud to announce the return of their smash hit.

The show is touring ski towns all over the province, and will land in Golden to play the Civic Centre.

I.M.T. (the company who brought you, White Star Lady, and Company Jump) is the Kootenay’s hottest professional theatre company. Ski Bum: The Musical 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 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 cultural anthropologist , played by new cast member Grant Waters, 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.

Ski Bum is jammed packed 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 musical performances.

The innuendo alone is enough to tickle even the most chafed of funny-bones. Don’t forget to take the ‘Ski Bums’ home with you! The cast has been hard at work on the release of their original soundtrack recording which will be available for purchase at the show.

So come on out you ski bums, snow bums, skinny bums, and large bums. Tickets are $25, Kicking Horse Culture members will receive a discount, and are available at The Art Gallery of Golden, or at the door.

Ski Bums will be showing two nights only, Thursday Feb. 2 at 7:30 p.m., and Friday, Feb. 3, doors open at 8, and the show starts at 9 p.m.
