Due to an unexpected scheduling change, we are able to present two additional performances of Sol Rose’s Sol 60s style variety show paying homage to the musical legacy of American singer, musician, dancer, actor, vaudevillian and comedian Sammy Davis, Jr. Using videos, storytelling and 14 classic songs from Davis’ repertoire, Sol covers important aspects of his life, from racism and related controversies to his conversion to Judaism. Songs included in the show include What Kind of Fool Am I, I Gotta Be Me, Mr. Bojangles and many more. March 29 & 30. Sol Rose’s other show, Stop The World, I Want To Get Off has its final performance on March 28.
As a special invitation for students to discover the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber, our Sunday, March 24 matinee performance of Love Changes Everything, featuring some of the composer’s most popular songs, will be free of charge to students presenting a valid school ID.
This coming week’s performance of I’m Playing Me! A Modern ‘Broad-ville’ Cabaret, starring Kami Desilets, will take place on Monday, March 25 at 9 pm, instead of 6 pm. Meet Kami up close and personal while she performs some of your favourite broadway characters; some characters you forgot about, and some characters you’ll meet for the first time. With the help of costume additions, wardrobe changes, and a voice that can blow your eardrums or sing you to sleep, each song will introduce you to a completely different personality.
