Summer may be coming to an end but our performances are not. We have 3 GREAT SHOWS for you this fall and they are selling like hot cakes. If you have not bought your tickets please call asap to do so, or shop on line at theatrecollingwood.ca.
SEPTEMBER 24th.- 28th.- OPRY GOLD
Sheeeee’s BACK! Collingwood’s favourite! Leisa Way! OPRY GOLD is a toe-tappin’, roof-raisin’, salute to the greatest music in the history of Country Music! To share the Opry’s history is to share the story of Country Music. Leisa Way and her phenomenally talented Wayward Wind Band have brought audiences many great shows, and this latest concert raises the roof with the hottest country songs from the last few decades. Sing-a-long to Johnny Cash, Shania Twain, Vince Gill, Loretta Lynn, Patsy Cline, Lady Antebellum, Kenny Rogers, Dolly Parton, Charlie Daniels, Zac Brown Band, Willie Nelson, Tammy Wynette, George Jones, Garth Brooks, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Hank Williams, Merle Haggard, Glen Campbell, Taylor Swift, Darius Rucker, Kenny Chesney, Gretchen Wilson, George Strait, Roger Miller, Flatt & Scruggs, Ricky Scaggs, Hank Snow, Roy Acuff, Alan Jackson, and more! This show is sponsored by TD Bank.
OCTOBER 1st. Dan Needles & Ian Bell in TRUE CONFESSIONS FROM THE NINTH LINE (2.0)
Join us as we bring Dan Needles back with folk musician Ian Bell for the second time this year. Dan is such a favourite and last time there was not enough room for everyone who wanted to attend his sold-out concert, so we thought we would give you another opportunity. At this show he will tell some of the old stories, and some new ones. If you have seen it before you will enjoy it again with the additional scoop from Dan. As I always say, I could listen to Dan Needles read his shopping list…..he is just that entertaining! (We are still in need of a sponsor for this show so please let us know if you are interested in supporting this talented duo.)
NOVEMBER 20th. -22nd. SOUL SISTERS
For three nights only, SOUL SISTERS tells the story of the incredible women who made their mark in the early days of Soul Music and R&B. Starting with Big Mama Thornton, Etta James, Soul Queen Aretha Franklin, and Gladys Knight, through to Patti LaBelle, Diana Ross and Tammi Terrell. The show also includes the music of Tina Turner, Chaka Kahn, and Janet Jackson. Power house music and power house voices! This show includes two amazing lead singers and an outstanding band. Don’t miss out and please join us for an evening of incredible musical talent! This show is sponsored by Royal LePage Locations North.
Many people have asked what are we doing for a performance space for next year. I want to tell you that we will be trying to find a couple of the best spaces to use next year. We are also meeting with a group of stakeholders who want to get an arts centre built for all to enjoy in Collingwood. I believe this will take a few years to complete the project but it will happen. It is my intent to streamline the amount of locations we use over the next couple of years, each to be accessible, interesting, and comfortable, and we will endeavor to create reserved seating for next year in all the locations we go to as we have heard your complaints about general seating. We are planning 2020 now and will announce Early Bird SALES in the near future.
