From the author The Wizard of Oz, Darling of the Day is a lost musical gem. Priam Farll is a brilliant unconventional artist who is offended Queen Victoria and was exiled to the South Pacific. Now it's 1905 and Victoria has been succeeded by Edward VII. Farll returns to London to receive a knighthood, but is appalled by society's expectations of him as a flash in the pan celebrity, a "darling of the day". When Farll's faithful butler suddenly dies and their identities are confused by an official, Farll seizes the chance to "get out of this world alive".

A Night with Beatlemania Revisited

Presented by Springtime Professional Entertainment
May 28, 2016
Showtimes:
2:30pm and 8:00pm

RELIVE THIS UNIQUE EXPERIENCE THROUGH THE MAGIC AND ENTHUSIAM OF BEATLEMANIA REVISITED! 

'BEATLEMANIA REVISITED', a unique Canadian-based musical and theatrical international touring show, features talented European and North American cast members recreating the look, sound and excitement of the Fab Four's live performances. More than 30 songs are performed live 'note for note' including 'I Wanna Hold Your Hand', 'A Hard Day's Night', 'Yellow Submarine', 'Yesterday' and 'Hey Jude', plus many more well-loved audience favourites. The evening begins with the Fab Four's famous 1964 appearance on the Ed Sullivan TV show and continues through their amazing career with many costume changes including the Sgt. Pepper and Abbey Road eras. Period guitars, replicas of those played by John, Paul and George, add to the authenticity of this finely tuned concert.
 
Leading the cast is the incomparable IAN GARCIA who performs worldwide as Sir Paul. MARK MATTHEWS, initially from London UK and a 2010 Juno award winner known in Canada for his original musical works, takes on the role of drummer Ringo Starr. His uncanny portrayal has resulted in rave reviews. JEREMY WRIGHT, a talented multi-instrumentalist and self-confessed 'Beatle fanatic' has performed alongside numerous Canadian artists and travelled three continents performing The Beatles songbook. His guitar skills and onstage enthusiasm and wit make him a natural in the role of George Harrison. Belfast, Northern Ireland native COLUM HENRY rounds out the Fab Four's cast. He captures the energy and humour of John Lennon to perfection. The role of the 'fifth Beatle', Billy Preston, is handled admirably by multi-talented musical director JOHN BROCKSOM providing the addition of piano, percussion and harmony vocals.
 
Beatlemania Revisited is an audience-interactive production that will have all young at heart fans singing, dancing and clapping along throughout the show.
