Winner of every major best musical award on Broadway and in the West End, “Kinky Boots” comes to the Orcas Center screen on Saturday, Oct. 19, at 7 p.m.

Big-hearted and high-spirited, “Kinky Boots” is inspired by true events and tells the story of Charlie Price, the new owner of his late father’s Northampton shoe factory. Trying to live up to his father’s legacy and save the family business from bankruptcy, Charlie finds inspiration in the form of Lola, an entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos.

As they work to turn the factory around, this unlikely pair finds they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible… and discovers that when you change your mind, you can change the world.

With songs by Grammy ® and Tony ® winning pop icon Cyndi Lauper, direction and choreography by Jerry Mitchell (“Legally Blonde,” “Hairspray”) and book by Broadway legend Harvey Fierstein (“La Cage Aux Folles”), “Kinky Boots” is simply ‘dazzling, fabulously sassy and uplifting’ (“Time Out”). Don’t miss “Kinky Boots,” the ‘freshest, most fabulous, feel-good musical of the decade’ (The Hollywood News) that proves that sometimes the best way to fit in … is to stand out!

Ticket prices are $15, $25, and $47 at the box office and at www.orcascenter.org.
