NEIL SQUARED: A Tribute to Neil Young and Neil Diamond
May 31 @ 7:30 pm

Neil Squared is a stunning 80 minute tribute to both Neil Young and Neil Diamond by award winning singer/songwriter Kenny Byrka.

Largely influenced by the sounds of the 70’s, award winning singer/songwriter Kenny Byrka has taken the works from two of his favourite artists who began their magnanimous careers during this era and developed a stunning 80 minute tribute to both Neil Young and Neil Diamond. The contrast between the two from a vocal and writing perspective is obvious, yet Kenny emulates both with precision, character and creative parameters, fuelled by his multi-instrumental abilities and diverse vocal range. Neil Squared is a collection of the classic songs from each artist, assembled for your enjoyment and to celebration the richness of words and music from two musical legends.

THE TEMPEST – Stratford Festival

VISUALLY STUNNING FANTASY

In Shakespeare’s great drama of loss and reconciliation, a long-deposed ruler uses magical arts to bring within her power the enemies who robbed her of her throne and marooned her on a remote island. But what revenge does she mean to take?

42nd STREET – Broadway Musical
Jul 7 @ 7:00 pm

The Legendary Broadway Production in HD

One of Broadway’s most classic and beloved tales, 42nd Street, comes to the big screen in the largest ever production of the show. The musical tells the story of Peggy Sawyer, a talented young performer with stars in her eyes who gets her big break on Broadway.

Peggy arrives to New York City from her hometown of Allentown, Pennsylvania and her talent catches the eye of legendary Broadway director Julian Marsh. She gets a spot in the chorus of Pretty Lady. Dorothy Brock, the classic Broadway diva and star of the show, takes a dislike to the new girl. When Dorothy is injured, Pretty Lady looks like it will have to close, unless a new girl talented enough to lead the show can be found — someone like Peggy Sawyer!

Filmed at London’s Theatre Royal the production is directed by the original author of the show, Mark Bramble. This eye-watering extravaganza is full of crowd-pleasing tap dances, popular musical theatre standards, and show-stopping ensemble production numbers.

Runtime: 2 hours 35 minutes
