Kutz and Dawgs visits Abbotsford for two shows

The musical is inspired by West Side Story and Romeo and Juliet.

A new musical production will make a two-day stop in Abbotsford.

Using Romeo and Juliet and West Side Story as inspiration, culturally and socially diverse youth cast members, in collaboration with professional artists, have created an original hip-hop musical.

The young performers will portray rivalling Kutz (alley cats) and Dawgs (junkyard dogs) in a cautionary tale that explores the destructive force of gang violence.

Dubbed “Glee with grit,” East Vancouver-based Miscellaneous Productions creates innovative artistic opportunities for youth. This play is suitable for ages nine  and older.

The show takes place in Abbotsford on Nov. 8 at 1:30 p.m. and Nov. 9 at 8 p.m. at the Matsqui Centennial Auditorium.

Tickets are $12 and are available at Abbotsford City Hall, Parks Recreation and Culture office.

Advance reservations are available by e-mailing to tickets@niknokmedia.com.
