Arts Club Theatre: Made in Italy - Performing Arts Trail

March 30 7:30 to 9:30 pm

The Trail & District Arts Council presents a celebration of family, food, and music in Arts Club Theatre’s hilariously heartwarming musical Made in Italy at The Bailey Theatre on March 30 at 7:30 pm.

Meet Francesco Mantini, a second-generation Italian teen struggling to find his place in Jasper, Alberta. Tired of living up to his traditional Italian-immigrant father’s expectations and the constant bullying from his Canadian peers, he takes inspiration from icons Rocky Balboa and John Travolta, and reinvents himself as Frank Martin: crooner and ladies’ man.

Weaving the electrifying music of the 1970s with classic Italian tunes, this five-time Jessie Award–nominated show is equal parts comedy, music, and heart as father and son find themselves despite their differences.

A one-man show that is as buoyant and bubbly as a glass of prosecco, Made in Italy is so delightful you won’t soon fuhgeddaboudit.

“…the show is consistently funny…more physical routines than the Cirque du Soleil” —Vancouver Sun

“A coming-of-age musical that offers myriad laughs” —Surrey Now-Leader

“Full of big laughs and funny storytelling” —Stir
