The final show until September at Showplace Performance Centre in Peterborough is bluesman Chris Thomas on Thursday, July 16th — but you can still order tickets online for all the upcoming fall shows.
Showplace recently announced its fall schedule of performances, which includes an eclectic mix of music, comedy, magic, children’s shows, and more.
Musical acts so far include pop-folk duo Fortunate Ones, the legendary Irish Rovers, rocker Matthew Good, the Celtic Tenors, 1960s Canadian teen idol Bobby Curtola, and Canadian “neuvo flamenco” guitarist Jesse Cook.
There’s also a slew of musical tribute acts (including The Highwaymen, Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, Buddy Holly, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, and more) as well as “Classic Albums Live” — note-for-note and cut-for-cut recreations of two albums by Supertramp and The Beatles.
The Elite Blues Series also continues this fall, with appearances by singer-songwriter and guitarist Dewey Via, Canadian bluesman Roy Bonneville, and an encore appearance by popular blues pianist and singer Victor Wainwright and The Wildroots with special guest The Paul DesLauriers Band from Montreal.Comedy is represented with two shows by comedian Ron James — CBC will be recording the performances for a New Year’s Eve special — and The Comic Strippers parody and improv comedy show (adults only).
Renowned magician Greg Frewin will be dazzling the Showplace audience this fall and, for the kids, children’s supergroup The Wiggles will be performing as well as Nickelodeon’s Bubble Guppies.
Back this year is “The Big Night”, with popular crooners Christopher Dallo and Brian Roman, along with special guest Danny Scott.
Holiday shows include the annual “A Cozy Christmas” concert and two performances of Arbor Theatre’s production of “Snow White & The Seven Dwarves”, directed by Ray Henderson and featuring new music by Beau Dixon.
See the full list of performances below, including links for more details on each show.
