Showplace Performance Centre in downtown Peterborough has quietly released its 2019/20 “Showplace Presents” season, but the offerings are anything but quiet.

Burton Cummings and Serena Ryder are two of the star musical acts coming to Showplace later this year, with Cummings performing on Sunday, December 1st and Ryder on Friday, December 20th.

Ryder, who was raised in Millbrook and attended Peterborough Collegiate and Vocational School, last performed at Showplace on December 15, 2017, to a sell-out crowd.

Other iconic musical acts include Lighthouse and the Irish Rovers, and the popular Classic Albums Live series returns with note-by-note recreations of Zeppelin IV, Fleetwood Mac’s Greatest Hits, and The Beatles’ Let It Be.
