Citadel Theatre Announces Line Up For New 2019/20 House Series

Citadel Theatre announced today the line-up for The House Series, formerly known as Beyond The Stage. The House Series features six spectacular shows throughout the 2019/20 Season, bringing audiences the best concerts, cabarets, and comedy in a casual, up-close-and-personal setting. The majority of the shows will take place in The Rice (formerly known as The Club), with the final concert of the series taking place in the Maclab Theatre.

"It's an eclectic and engaging mix of live experiences we have curated for you, including great music, compelling stories, and big laughs," says Citadel Artistic Director Daryl Cloran. "And ultimately, it's a fantastic night out!"

The series highlights local, national, and International Artists, including Edmontonians Kate Ryan, Patricia Zentilli, John Ullyatt, Audrey Ochoa, and the three hilarious women behind the comedy troupe, Girl Brain. National guests include Diyet & The Love Soldiers, an alternative folk, roots, country and traditional Aboriginal group born in the Yukon Territory. And, coming to Edmonton for the first time is the LA-based pop group, The Filharmonic, comprised of five Filipino-American a capella singers.

Born in a tent, raised in a cabin on the shores of a glacial lake in the Kluane region of Canada's Yukon Territory, Diyet embodies her Southern Tutchone, Japanese, Tlingit, and Scottish roots with a musical presence that is equally diverse and unique. Diyet & The Love Soldiers, with husband and collaborator, Robert van Lieshout on guitar and foot percussion and multi- instrumentalist, Bob Hamilton, is Alternative Folk, Roots, Country, and Traditional Aboriginal with melodies and stories deeply rooted in Diyet's Indigenous world view and northern life. Her songs are an interpretation of a northern reality: hard, raw and will break you if it can but at the same time, always beautiful, gentle, strange, and intensely alive.
