Creekside Theatre is excited to present Leila Neverland for two nights on Friday, November 18th and Saturday, November 19th, at 7:30 pm in Lake Country for a night of original compositions and superstar Adele covers.


Known for her creative, and absurdly brilliant performances, Leila Neverland truly never duplicates a performance. Her unique, multi-talented artistry has allowed her to pursue many arts-related endeavours, thereby honing her craft in a holistic fashion. Not only can she play the piano with impressive skill and accuracy, but also tackles the ukulele, and has worked to shape her voice to that of a versatile singing powerhouse.

Having being classically trained in music, Neverland has been performing original material for the past 15 years and has been part of the event/live music scene since she was young. Neverland describes her musical style as being “free-spirited gypsy ragtime freedom music” and sees every performance as a unique experience for both her and the audience-goers. Neverland has close to 10 albums worth of material, and has just recently put together her latest collection entitled “Ten Shades of Leila”.

The last few years, Neverland has been performing, writing, as well as producing original material, including her music theatre production Transcending Orbit, which was staged and produced in 2012. The production followed a young woman through her journey out of stagnancy through transcendence. Neverland is seeking grant funding in order to make the production bigger and better and reach a wider audience.

Neverland’s next appearances scheduled for Creekside Theatre on November 18th and 19th in Lake Country, are further testament to her versatility as a musician and multi-talented abilities as she pays tribute to superstar powerhouse songstress: Adele. Adele (Adkins), known for her powerful, vocally-charged ballads such as “Someone Like You”, “Rumor Has It” and “Rolling in the Deep”, and chart-topping albums is arguably one of the best female vocalists to date, making her music difficult to tackle. At the urging and encouragement from her contractor, Neverland was convinced to say “Hello” to Adele’s music given her own set of powerful vocal cords and has thoroughly enjoyed the challenge.

“I was asked to sing Adele because my contractor believed my lungs could manage her powerful voice. He was right. Her music is a blast!” says Neverland.

Joined by fellow musicians pianist Kodi Ackerman, drummer Jay Dallomar, string duet Nils and Julia, and long-time friend and dancer Ana-Maria Kiss, Neverland will warm up with some of her original compositions and then embrace her inner Adele as she performs some of Miss Adkins’ top hits with flair.

Adele may not be physically visiting the Okanagan, but Leila Neverland and crew will definitely give the superstar a proper tribute that should not be missed. Come hear Leila in concert on Friday, November 18th, or Saturday, November 19th at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $25 available at the door, online at www.creeksidetheatre.com or by calling 250-860-2867.
