OUR TOP PICKS FOR WHAT’S NEW IN THEATRE, MUSIC AND ART
A Night Out To End All Nights Out
SPARK BURNING BRIGHTLY A rock star takes a starring role, Daniel MacIvor does American monologist Spalding Gray and a few torn-from-theheadlines shows — this is the Belfry’s 2018 SPARK Festival. It’s too much to ask to recommend just one of the shows, so go see all five. Although, since you’re asking, the strangest is an adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s Tomorrow’s Child, which is played as an immersive audio experience for a blindfolded audience.
Belfry Theatre, March 8 to 28, belfry.bc.ca
Tomorrow’s Child, Ghost River Theatre

ART OF THE CHART
Remember those old movies about sailors and tall ships and how they used to unroll huge nautical charts on a desk and point at them? The Maritime Museum of BC is rolling out its own collection of out-dated, local nautical charts. In a 90-minute workshop, you can turn these maps into 3D art using origami. We’re a coastal city. We should do this stuff.
Ship Point, Inner Harbour, Victoria (adjacent to the Harbour Air Terminal on Wharf Street)

BACHMAN AND A BEATLE Randy Bachman will never go away. And that’s good. The elder statesman of Canadian rock may only be 175 years old, but his neverending roadshow, Every Song Tells A Story, is worth its weight in gold albums — and Bachman has sold 40 million of them! On this mustsee tour, Bachman also pays special tribute to his early mentor and inspiration, George Harrison. Royal Theatre, March 13, rmts.bc.ca/royal-theatre
