Friday Night Live

Lynn Valley United Church has contracted with Alan Marriott, artistic director for "Ad Libretto," to deliver Friday Night Live each Friday evening at 7:30pm.  This weekly show is a way of gathering in community through the lens of performing arts, celebrating the interconnectedness of us all.

Ad Libretto are professional actors who specialize in music and comedy improvisation, and offer this weekly exploration of "living in the moment" -  kind of spiritual practice akin to meditation, except that participants enjoy the unfoding skits  and "altered consciousness" is achieved through laughter, humour, and music.
The show is not religious in nature, but each week is centered around a positive and uplifting theme.  All performances are family friendly.
A special guest joins the AdLibretto cast each week - singers, musicians, story-tellers, actors, composers... offering their varied talents, along with a brief interview exploring inspiration, challenges, and other insights into artistic life.
Admission is $10 (kids under 12 are free, and group/student discounts are available by contacting the church office). Doors open at 7pm for the 7:30 show for a chance to grab a complimentary coffee from our friends at Lynn Valley Waves. Wine is available for purchase at some shows, but due to regulations are not available at every performance.
