Kinky Boots musical coming to Kelowna

The award winning musical will grace Kelowna in 2019.

TROIKA Entertainment and True North Touring are thrilled to present KINKY BOOTS, the smash-hit musical that brings together four-time Tony Award-winner Harvey Fierstein and Grammy Award-winning rock icon Cyndi Lauper (Tony Award-winner for Best Score for KINKY BOOTS), at Prospera Place.

KINKY BOOTS will play March 21, 2019. Get your tickets at www.selectyourtickets.com

REALTED: Nitty Gritty still loves performing live

The winner of six 2013 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, KINKY BOOTS features a Tony Award-winning score by Cyndi Lauper, a book by Tony Award-winner Harvey Fierstein, and direction and choreography by Tony Award-winner Jerry Mitchell. KINKY BOOTS tells the uplifting and heartwarming tale of Charlie Price, a young man reluctantly taking over his family’s struggling shoe factory and looking for a fresh idea.

Charlie meets and finds inspiration in Lola, and together they discover that it takes a good friend to make a great pair. KINKY BOOTS has won every major Best Musical Award and is represented around the world with the Tony Award-winning Broadway company now in its fifth year, an Olivier Award-winning production in London, an Australian production that opened in October 2016, and an upcoming production in Germany. Other previous productions include a past US National Tour that played more than 80 cities, an Award-winning extended run in Toronto, two productions in Korea, and a Japanese language production. The Grammy Award-winning Original Broadway Cast Recording of KINKY BOOTS is available on Sony Masterworks Broadway.

Inspired by true events, KINKY BOOTS takes you from a gentlemen’s shoe factory in Northampton to the

glamorous catwalks of Milan. Charlie Price is struggling to live up to his father’s expectations and continue the

family business of Price & Son. With the factory’s future hanging in the balance, help arrives in the unlikely but

spectacular form of Lola, a fabulous performer in need of some sturdy new stilettos.

Award nominee David Rockwell (Scenic Design), Tony Award-winner Gregg Barnes (Costume Design), Tony

Award-winner Kenneth Posner (Lighting Design), Tony Award-winner John Shivers (Sound Design), Josh

(Casting), DB Bonds (Associate Director), and Rusty Mowery (Associate Choreographer). KINKY BOOTS

Award-winner Stephen Oremus.
