Lynn Valley began producing FNL as a weekly ‘alternative way for the community to gather.’ People used to gather at churches on Sundays – now, busy lives and overfilled schedules have resulted in the erosion of regular ‘community gatherings.’ Gathering in community, in a positive, fun, often inspiring environment is an important contributor to a rich culture. So, over the last four years, we have created, improvised, innovated, and stretched …. to the place where Friday Night Live was recognized as one of the North Shore’s Best Kept Secrets in the 2013 annual North Shore Outlook “Best Of” contest, and in Vancouver’s Best Places 2015. we were recognized as The North Shore’s Best Family Entertainment Comedy Deal! Our broad vision for this community gathering is to celebrate spirit through the performing arts! We create meaningful community connections which celebrate the interconnectedness of us all.
What’s FNL all about? It’s a variety show …. every week is different. It is an experience that you help create by sharing your life stories. Then, it’s comedy, music, improv. Special Guests ranging from magicians to musicians, from dancers to tattoo artists. And everything in between. World famous professionals and up-and coming local talent. It’s improvised. Just like life! We can’t control what has gone before. We can only imagine what is to come. We live in the moment. Unscripted.
