Chris Hadfield’s Canada 150 Show

December 11, 2017 - 19:00 - 21:00

OPL-BPO Canada 150 presents Chris Hadfield’s Canada 150 Show on Monday, December 11, 7 p.m., at Centrepointe Theatres.

Five months aboard the International Space Station, three spaceflights and 2600 orbits of Earth later, Colonel Hadfield lands in Ottawa to present his Canada 150 show and to help OPL celebrate Storytelling without Borders.

Colonel Chris Hadfield – astronaut, musician, author, master storyteller and the first Canadian Commander of the International Space Station– will share a selection of stories, images, songs and ideas that celebrate the 150th birthday of the nation he is so proud to call home. From his unique perspective, Chris looks at the history and future of Canada through its people and the land itself.

Chris Hadfield’s Canada 150 Show will mark the end of OPL’s 2017 exploration of storytelling to highlight Canada’s 150th anniversary. Stories are the way we connect with each other, the way we connect to our history, and the way we can envision our shared future.

The OPL will be giving away 150 autographed copies of Chris Hadfield’s book The Darkest Dark at the event!
