Everyone's favorite practically perfect nanny takes the stage in this Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious musical adventure.
 
One of the most popular Disney movies of all time is capturing hearts in a whole new way: as a practically perfect musical! Based on the books by P.L. Travers and the classic Walt Disney film, Disney and Cameron Mackintosh's Mary Poppins delighted Broadway audiences for over 2,500 performances and received nominations for nine Olivier and seven TONY Awards, including Best Musical.
 
The jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family how to value each other again. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren't the only ones she has a profound effect upon. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that "Anything can happen if you let it."
 
Mary Poppins is an enchanting mixture of irresistible story, unforgettable songs, breathtaking dance numbers, and astonishing stagecraft. This show is a perfect opportunity to showcase a strong, iconic female performer, as well as unique special effects and illusions.

Derek Edwards

​Presented by Shantero Productions

Feb 28, 2016
Showtimes:
7:30pm

Derek Edwards - Baloney and Wine is an uproarious romp through the increasingly strange quirks of our daily routines.  It's relentless and brazen, a tightly woven running commentary about human nature ... “the thinking man's coffee break.”   In an ever more chaotic world, Edwards remains an inimitable constant, the hilarious voice of reason.  As he says, "28 years in, it's AAALLLL starting to click!" 

Derek Edwards’ new 90-minute stand-up comedy show ... a richly textured and enthralling 'cut above,’ delivered with pace and authority. It sizzles - it pops; it's Baloney and Wine.

CARMEN  - music by Georges Bizet, libretto by Henri Melhac and Ludovic Halevy based on the short novel by Prosper Merrimee
The enchanting Carmen is drawn and captivated by the indifferent Corporal of Dragoons, Don Jose. She succeeds in convincing him to forget about his hometown sweetheart, Micaela and his honour as a soldier. Don Jose deserts the army and Micaela to join a band of smugglers to which Carmen belongs.
But soon, becoming bored with him, Carmen discards Don Jose in favour of the toreador, Escamillo. Don Jose’s burning jealousy sets the stage for his final unsuccessful attempt to win Carmen back. She spurns him yet again and as she awaits the arrival of Escamillo from the arena, Don Jose, in a fit of rage, stabs her to death.

Men of the Deeps

Presented by Theatres@Barrie​

April 8, 2016
Showtimes:
7:30pm
 

​The Men of the Deeps is a choir of working and retired coal miners from the island of Cape Breton in Nova Scotia, Canada. Organized in 1966 as part of Cape Breton’s contribution to Canada’s Centennial Year (1967), the group’s inception was an effort by the people of Cape Breton to preserve in song some of the rich folklore of the island’s coal mining communities.

The musical repertoire of the Men of the Deeps is gathered from mining communities around the world. Many of the group’s songs are “home grown” - composed by contemporary Cape Breton bards, or traditional songs which trace their roots to their Celtic fore bearers in the bold country. Musical Director and Conductor, Jack O’Donnell has become an expert on coal mining songs in Canada, and published a major collection entitled And Now The Fields Are Green: A Collection of Coal Mining Songs in Canada (Sydney, Nova Scotia; University College of Cape Breton Press: 1992).

To belong to the singing group, a man must have worked in the mine. The ages of the men range from the mid-thirties to the upper-seventies, some members of the choir have been with the group since it was organized in 1966. A special sense of authenticity is given to the group by the presence of several retired coal miners who recall vividly the days when coal miners were looked upon as “second class” citizens, forced to eke out a living mining coal in hazardous conditions while their lives were almost entirely dependent upon the company.

Today, the Men of the Deeps is more than a singing group - it is a social institution. There is a camaraderie amongst the members of the group that carries over to their audiences wherever they perform. Clad in coveralls and hard hats, they make an impressive impact when they enter a concert hall in total darkness with only the lamps on their helmets for light.

Anyone who attends a concert by the Men of the Deeps cannot help but come away with the feeling that a special breed of men has touched them.
