JUNE 2019:

JUNE 9, 2019: DEREK EDWARDS ALLS I’M SAYING

TICKETS AVAILABLE HERE

Alls I’m Saying is brazenly tentative! Like a sniper with the hiccups, Derek Edwards takes aim at life’s galling moments, exhales slowly and jerks back the trigger. A riotous evening of homegrown comedy — like taking a ride in an open golf cart with a good friend and a 6 pack.

From Vegas to St. John’s, this Just For Laughs veteran is universally considered to be among the comic elite. Certainly his peers think so, as evidenced by the fact that he’s a four-time nominee, and winner of Best Standup Comic – Canadian Comedy Awards, as well as a multiple Gemini nominee for Best Performance in a Comedy. As Rick Mercer says, “Everyone knows Derek is the funniest man in Canada.”

Clearly the critics agree: “5 STARS – the funniest man on earth” – Winnipeg Free Press; “4 STARS – the crowd howled” – Victoria Times Colonist; “still the funniest man in Canada” – Toronto Sun; “Edwards reigns as the King of Canadian comedy” – Charlottetown Guardian; “Derek Edwards is hysterical” – Calgary Sun; “Edwards takes stand-up to next stage” – Georgia Straight; “the epitome of timing & storytelling” – Halifax Chronicle Herald; “the comedian’s comedian” – London Free Press.

Alls I’m Saying – Derek Edwards’ new 90-minute stand-up comedy show, …a richly textured and enthralling ‘cut above,’ delivered with pace and authority by the consummate Canadian Comedian.

JULY 2019:

JULY 11-27, 2019: JUDY RUSSELL PRESENTS DISNEY’S BEAUTY & THE BEAST

Judy Russell invites you to “Be Our Guest” this summer as they present Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. This production is proudly sponsored by Canadian Tire. Click here for tickets.

The music for Beauty and the Beast was written by Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice, and book by Linda Woolverton. The musical was adapted from the 1991 Walt Disney film of the same name. Beauty and the Beast tells the story of a prince who is magically transformed into a terrible beast as punishment for his selfish ways. To return to his human form he must learn to love and be loved in return or he and his household will remain transformed forever.

All eight songs from the Original Disney film were used in the stage production, as well as one song which was cut from the film and six new songs written specifically for the stage production.
