The Conseil Communautaire Beausoleil unveiled its cultural programming for the 2013-2014 Season in Miramichi.

“You will find something for every appetite: the return of the dance festival for a second consecutive year, three family shows and the equally enticing Cultural Pass. A few tasty additions include: a show package that is easily accessible, a dinner show with Italian flavour and bilingual entertainment,” says Line Thibodeau, Director of Cultural Development.

“For the first time, there will be a show outside of the walls of the Carrefour Beausoleil. Indeed we are moving to the Miramichi Golf Club for a dinner show Italian style with the excellent Marco Calliari. Italy is on the menu for its musical content along with a mix of French and English animation.”

Acadian artists dominate the line-up including Jean-Marc Couture, Les Hay Babies, Peigne and Monique Poirier, Nicole Haché and Michel Thériault (visual artist) and the Atlantic Theatre Ballet of Canada.

On the Canadian scene, artists include Isabeau et les chercheurs d’Or, the vocal quartet Qw4rtz, and the hip hop dance troupe BBoyizm.
