“Fun for Life GO” Online Recreation Resources

The City of Victoria has launched online recreation resources to help residents stay healthy and well during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Fun for Life GO combines ideas from the City’s experts in fitness, programming for children and older adults, and outdoor recreation, with links to other helpful resources.

Staff from the Crystal Pool and Fitness Centre are creating videos from home to stay connected with residents while recreation facilities remain closed.

The first videos include two strengthening exercises you can do from home without special fitness equipment, two interactive games to keep kids active and engaged, and 10 ideas to stay active outdoors while practising physical distancing. New videos will be added regularly.

“This is a difficult time for many who rely on the City’s recreation facilities and programs to maintain their physical, mental and emotional health,” said Victoria Mayor Lisa Helps. “Fun for Life GO is a creative way to stay connected and to continue to support residents with their activity needs during this extended time at home.”

In addition, staff continue to visit City parks as part of the Recreation Ambassador Program to engage with residents about recreation facility closures and physical distancing. Open spaces and trails in City parks remain open.

Jesus Christ Superstar Sing-A-Long

This Good Friday, The Vic Theatre is proud to present the epic Rock Opera Extravaganza – Jesus Christ Superstar Sing-A-Long!

Experience the dazzling 1973 film adaptation of Tim Rice & Andrew Lloyd Webber’s rocking musical on the big screen, complete with subtitles so that you can sing along to all the classic tunes including What’s the Buzz?, I Don’t Know How to Love Him, and Superstar!

Based on the smash-hit concept album and Broadway show written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, this cult-classic, directed by acclaimed filmmaker Norman Jewison (Fiddler on the Roof), tells the story of the final six days in the life of Jesus Christ through the troubled eyes of his exasperated friend Judas Iscariot.

Shot entirely on location in Israel, Jesus Christ Superstar features epic sets, unforgettable ’70s-era costumes, and of course, an explosive set of songs that range in style from stage to disco to funk to rock – all of which add up to make Jesus Christ Superstar one of the grooviest, most rocking Rock Operas of all-time!
