Snoring Sasquatch hosting campaign rally play

The Snoring Sasquatch arts and music house hosts another unique theatre event on Feb. 18 and 19, Jordan Koop for Mayor.

Created by and starring local thespian Jordan Koop, this one-man show is part political satire and part sketch comedy. The show will take a twisted and entertaining look at the world of politics.

“I’m doing this for the experience, for the laughs,” said Koop, who received a theatre diploma after two years of study in Calgary. “I also appeared in three independent films produced by Forgotten Studios, also located in Calgary.”

Although it is primarily a one-man show, Jordan Koop for Mayor has a supporting cast. Local performers Jason Smith, Kelly Mehrer, Brian Lawrence, Caleb Siggers and Bobby Doran play roles, both live and in video segments produced by Global TV’s Dan Caverly, and help create the illusion that guests are attending the live broadcast of a political campaign special.

The doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the show starts at 8. Tickets are $10 in advance at Black Bear Books or Kingfisher Used Books, or $12 at the door.
