And The Winner Is......

We've been rehearsing since January... and now it's Show Time!

The theme of this year's annual Variety Show is an Awards Night, celebrating the Oscars, the Emmys, the Junos, the Golden Globes, and whatever other ShowBiz awards you can think of, there are plenty of them.

Dim the lights, strike up the band, and let's Break A Leg!!!

This show has a little bit of everything. We have music, comedy and dance, all provided by the talented people of this small town.

The dancers are awesome and oh so graceful....

... even this one.

We have singing cowboys....

.....and super athletic sports teams.
Canada loves those hockey games, eh?

Look closely... there's Elvis and Tina Turner, The Phantom... and isn't that Willie Nelson and Marilyn opening up the winner's envelope? All ably supported by a touch of glamour, great music and loads of sparkle.

The Grand Finale.... these pictures were taken at Dress Rehearsal, so you have to overlook the untidy cables on the floor and the lack of audience! I'm in the back row somewhere.... but I'm also in the Hockey Dance picture, see if you can spot me!

Tickets available at the door, Thursday, Friday and Saturday night, and a special Saturday Matinee.... see you at the Theatre!!

This is too cute--wish I could come up and see the real deal.

The dress up part reminds me of the Father Ted episode where they have the look-alike contest, and they dress up as Elvis, Ziggy Stardust, The Supremes, etc... just pure fun!

In the tradition of "It's Bad Luck To Wish Someone Good Luck" in the Theatre....(Thus, Break A Leg...) MERDE...(THIS IS THE CORRECT SPELLING..lol)..Is a French word for SH*T and means Good Luck to everyone in The Theatre! Thus,

"MERDE" to you tonight, my dear!
