Our picks this week: The Dreamboats & Stir Fry: An Improv Show

Here's what we're most excited about this week on a Halifax stage

The Dreamboats

Who: The Carleton
What: The Dreamboats
Where: The Carleton (1685 Argyle St, Halifax)
When: February 5
Why: If you’re going to name your band The Dreamboats you better deliver. Fortunately, this band quartet of Canadian boys from Mississauga not only looks the part but they also deliver musically with their mix of nostalgia and original tunes. More information at thecarleton.com.

The Dreamboats bring a mix of original tunes that go hand-in-hand with faves from the likes of The Beatles, Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, and the Everly Brothers. Photo: Courtesy the artists.

Stir Fry: An Improv Show

Who: Same Boat
What: Stir Fry: An Improv Show
Where: The Bus Stop Theatre (2203 Gottingen St, Halifax)
When: February 6
Why: Halifax improv and sketch comedy troupe is bringing together a group of local improvisers for a quartet of long-form sets plus one big “stir-fry” at the end.
