An award-winning performer is bringing his true-life story to the stage in a show at Shadbolt Centre for the Arts in January.
Mike Delamont’s Mama’s Boy is onstage Thursday, Jan. 23 and Friday, Jan. 24 at 8 p.m. in the Shadbolt’s Studio Theatre.
Delamont, a 20-time Best of the Fest winning performer who’s widely known for his God Is a Scottish Drag Queen trilogy, is sharing what’s billed as “a heartbreaking, funny and endearing true story of addiction, music and love.”
His show tells the story of his relationship with his mother. Delamont was adopted as a baby, and his adoptive father died when he was seven, leaving him the sole custody of a mom who, little by little, lost herself to alcoholism over the course of his younger years.
Shadbolt Centre is at 6450 Deer Lake Ave. For tickets, see tickets.shadboltcentre.com or call 604-205-3000.
