A Rocky-themed, coming-of-age musical set in 1970s Alberta is coming to Chilliwack.

The Arts Club Theatre Company returns to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre to present Made In Italy on March 19.

Meet Francesco Mantini, a second-generation Italian teen struggling to find his place in Jasper, Alberta. Inspired by pop culture icons Rocky Balboa and John Travolta, he reinvents himself as Frank Martin: crooner and ladies’ man. As buoyant and bubbly as a glass of Prosecco, Made in Italy is a celebration of music, food, and family.

This play is as immersive as familial love itself, and the heartwarming story combines wit, charm, and nostalgia.

Made in Italy is coming to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on Tuesday, March 19 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $49 with discounts for those in the Patron Programs, and can be purchased at the Centre Box Office, online at, or by calling 604-391-SHOW(7469).
