The Miracle Worker,

This classic tells the story of Annie Sullivan and her student, blind and mute Helen Keller, dramatizing the volatile relationship between the lonely teacher and her charge. Trapped in a secret, silent world, unable to communicate, Helen is violent and spoiled. Only Annie realizes that there is a mind and spirit waiting to be rescued from the dark, tortured silence. With scenes of intense physical and emotional dynamism, Annie’s success with Helen finally comes with the utterance of a single word: water.
Directed by Corry Lapointe Written & composed by John Maclachlan Gray In collaboration with Eric Peterson

Created and performed by
David Macfarlane and Douglas Cameron
A writer visits his dying mother. He brings a book that he’d written twenty-five years ago to read to her. It’s about her family. But it’s also about the terrible battle – Beaumont Hamel – that sits at the heart of both Newfoundland’s and her family’s history. So begins The Door You Came In — a two-man performance based on David Macfarlane’s acclaimed memoir, The Danger Tree.
The songs and the music of The Door You Came In are Douglas Cameron’s department. A seasoned, Juno-nominated singer and performer, Cameron plays banjola, mandolin, ukulele, and accordion. His engaging, foot-tapping performance combines popular tunes of the day (“Pack Up Your Troubles,” and “If You Were the Only Girl in the World”) with original compositions. Macfarlane’s narrative weaves seamlessly throughout the music.
The Door You Came In isn’t quite a play and it isn’t quite a concert. It’s a musical story – sometimes funny, sometimes tragic – that tells the tales of family, and memory, and war.
Starring Dean Z and Pete Paquette
Undoubtedly one of the most dynamic shows this year. New for 2017, this show features two of the worlds’ most accomplished Elvis Tribute Artists at their very best, Pete Paquette from Canada and Dean Z from the USA, accompanied by our very own Rockin’ Royals Showband and the Tonettes. Energized by friendly competitiveness, both Pete and Dean will go head to head as Elvis, taking you back in time to relive the various eras of the King’s colourful music career in this fun, authentic and interactive concert.
From Branson, Missouri, Dean Z is our special guest Elvis Tribute Artist. Dean has dedicated his entire life to honouring the legacy of Elvis Presley, the King of Rock n’ Roll. In August 2013, he was named the winner of the 2013 Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest in Memphis, Tennessee. He has toured across the globe and has shown time and again he is one of the best in the business today through his energy, vocals, mannerisms and authenticity.
From Toronto, Ontario, Pete Paquette is a World-class Elvis Tribute Artist, highly regarded as one of the top Elvis performers in the business today. Pete is known for captivating his audiences through his incredible voice, high energy, charisma, and playful spontaneity with his audiences. This multi-award winning performer has also had the opportunities of headlining some of the largest Elvis festivals across North America, including Collingwood Elvis Festival and the 30th Anniversary Show held in Memphis, Tennessee in 2007. Pete is an exciting performer to watch and will undoubtedly leave you wanting more.
