It’s finally Friday and it’s sunny and warm outside! To make today even more amazing, check out these 5 events happening in and around Victoria today!

Kim’s Convenience

What: This event is a bit of a drive but it’ll be worth it! You’ll get more than you bargained for at Mr. Kim’s downtown Toronto convenience store. Along with his enormous variety of groceries and knick-knacks, he dispenses amusing folk wisdom, quizzical Korean trivia, and a peculiar type of pride. The hilarity and the business may be short lived if a big box store invades the neighbourhood, his daughter rejects the family shop, and his prodigal son returns. Is there a future for Kim’s Convenience?

What: WORKING, the musical, paints a vivid portrait of the men and women that the world so often takes for granted. WORKING delivers an honest and intriguing portrayal of 26 diverse careers. Join the students of the Canadian College of Performing Arts (CCPA) as they present WORKING, a production that is sure to become an audience favorite for years to come!
Audiences will relate to the varied songs and monologues of this working man’s musical – if you haven’t done the job then you know someone who has. “CCPA students will challenge the audience, and themselves, to think deeply because they will be very connected to these stories that are based in truth,” comments director Matthew Howe. At times grungy, at times comedic, but always hopeful, WORKING celebrates the daily grind.
