An Evening with Sheila Williams – Always At It!
Showdates: Friday Sept 29 and Saturday Sept 30
A letter from Mavis McGrath:
Dear Theatre Goers! Look, I wouldn’t miss it for the world! It’s world class entertainment! Now I should let you know this is not a paid endorsement. Oh no. I’m entirely genuine when I say Sheila puts on the best show in town. She doesn’t pay me to say these things. And I have never asked her to pay me. And I won’t ask her to pay me. Not that I think there would be anything amiss in being compensated for my services. But I haven’t asked and I won’t ask, will I? But that’s a separate point.
Now of course we’re not all cut out the same. Maybe you’re not interested in laughing your head off for an evening. Maybe you’re not interested in having all your worries evaporate in the presence of the world class talent on stage with Sheila on these evenings. Maybe joy and laughter are not things you aspire to. And certainly it’s up to yourself. It’s none of my business what you do. You can stay home and watch the reruns of Downton Abbey. Because that’s not to be sniffed at either. Maggie was always nice to me whenever I dropped over. It’s nothing to me what you do. But I do like to laugh, you see. So I’ll be there. Now don’t get me wrong. There’ll be lots of invitations I’ll have to turn down because I am sought after, as you know. But I wouldn’t miss Sheila’s show. You do what you want. It’s not for me to say, certainly!
The Rocky Horror Show
Presented by: TaDa! Events
Show Dates: Oct 6th, 7th, 8th
Richard O’Brien’s The Rocky Horror Show is one of the world’s favorite musicals, seen by more than 30 million people in over 30 countries. It is the show that started it all for TaDa! Events twenty years ago, and to celebrate we invite you to join us and Do The Time Warp Again! A loving homage to the classic B sci-fi film and horror genres, The Rocky Horror Show has an irresistible rock and roll music score and a darkly hilarious story. Unbelievably wholesome Brad Majors and his fiancee, Janet Weiss, get a flat tire on a dark and stormy night and seek shelter at the castle of flamboyant Dr. Frank ‘N’ Furter just in time to witness the creation of Frank’s new creature, Rocky. As the night unfolds, Brad and Janet are lured over to the dark side by Frank and his minions, all in the name of absolute pleasure. But all is not as it seems……………… The Rocky Horror Show has become a cult classic, inviting audience participation and the celebration of self-expression. It embraces the unconventional and is guaranteed to be the most fun you’ll have – in or out of fishnets.
The Rocky Horror Show is directed by Terri Andrews, with musical direction by Bill Brennan and choreography by Pamela Pittman. It stars Dace Green (Eda Kumquat) as Frank ‘N’ Furter, Evan Smith as Brad, Rebecca Sellars as Janet, Sabrina Roberts as Magenta, Taylor Aucoin as Riff Raff, Tanya Lasby as Columbia, Jeff Simms as Rocky, John Andrews as Eddie, Bruce Brenton as Dr. Scott, Wayne Pardy as the Narrator, Kristina Bernardo as the Usherette, and features Andrew Hart, Mal Parrot (Madame Daddy), Jordan Hollahan, Nicole Pelley (Mia Moore), Nick Mandville, Thomas Ozon, Melissa Power, Roger Samson, Cody Siliker, Garrett Wells, Cora Cameron, Kelin Boyd, Jarod Farrell, Hilary Walsh and Adrien Doucet on the stage and a host of party-loving Transylvanians in the aisles.

Oct 15, 2023
Presented by: Just For Laughs
In a relatively short period of time, Danny has established himself as one of the biggest-selling comedians in Canada, Australia and New Zealand as well as his home country of Scotland. In November 2014, he did his first tour of the US with his critically acclaimed show Dear Epson, and in 2016, continued building on his success with his tour Please Untick This Box with sold out shows in Australia and New Zealand and his sold out Canadian tour Commonwealth Comedian.

In addition to his live performances, Danny’s first two specials, Live at The Opera House and Live at the Athenaeum, were released only in Australia and New Zealand, where they enjoyed huge success. In early 2012, he recorded his first worldwide special in his hometown of Edinburgh, Live At The Festival Theatre.

RON JAMES – Not Nearly Done Yet
Nov 17, 2023
Presented by: Shantero Productions
With twenty-five years spent barreling down endless strips of asphalt from coast to coast, RON JAMES, our nation’s number one road warrior and newly minted senior citizen, is Not Nearly Done Yet! With his trademark poetically charged alliterative rants, performed with razor sharp timing, this award-winning comedian and best-selling author takes audiences on a marathon roller coaster ride in the language of laughs, charting a course through a politically polarized world out of whack. From the micro to macro, he tackles everything from the dating woes of Baby Boomers, embattled public health care, aging parents, food fads, exercise addiction, nostalgia, information overload, tropical vacations gone awry, New Age divas, homelessness crisis, climate change, corporate monopolies and gambling ads in hockey, to the rise of AI’s robot revolution. The comedian the Globe and Mail called, ‘a man of a million words and a million laughs’, contemplates what really matters most in a culture beset by runaway consumption… and it is us. The preservation of humanity’s humanity. ‘Everything else is just a spoiler on a Dodge Neon’.
