The show follows the story of a motley group of campers who hitch up their trailer and set out on a journey across the continent from east to west. Expect to see five different sets, all unpacked from a single trailer, as the group travels from the Atlantic to the Prairies and through the Rockies.

“With a well-stocked cooler, windows wide open and music blaring, they are all set for an epic odyssey on wheels,” a press release says. “Salty air that fills the lungs, enshrouding forests, electrifying cities, breathtaking mountains and plains that stretch as far as the eye can see hold the promise of an unforgettable trip.”

The show is brought to life by five performers and a musician.

It’s on Thursday, Aug. 16 at 7 p.m. and Friday, Aug. 17 at 4 and 7 p.m. It’s outside, and it runs rain or shine, so go prepared for the weather – if it rains, have an umbrella, as the show will go on. It will be on the South Plaza at the Shadbolt Centre, 6450 Deer Lake Ave.

Tickets are $10 and available now at or 604-205-3000.
