Vancouver, BCStudio 58, the nationally renowned theatre training program at Langara College, makes a return to live theatre with Cerulean Blue, a lighthearted comedy by Ojibway playwright Drew Hayden Taylor with music by Wayne Lavallee.

In Cerulean Blue, a struggling blues band is invited to play at a benefit concert in Dead Rat River, a remote First Nation community in conflict with the government authorities about land rights. Chaos ensues as the band arrives to discover that all the other acts have cancelled. Throw in a little bit of romance, an all-out-brawl, and plenty of wacky characters and Cerulean Blue is a fast moving, stereotype-smashing ride!

Kelsey Kanatan Wavey, hailing from the Tataskewyak Cree Nation and Cameron Peal from the Nisga'a Nation, both Studio 58 graduates, direct. Kanatan Wavey and Peal say, “Cerulean Blue is a dynamic and hilarious collision of worlds and perspectives that offers a chance to celebrate a sense of humour amidst some pretty chaotic circumstances not too far off from our own.”
