King John

May 21 to September 20.

Opens May 28.

War is the inevitable result when the King of France demands that John relinquish his crown in favour of his nephew, the young Prince Arthur.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream — a chamber play

July 11 to September 20.

Opens July 24.

Two couples become gods, animals, demons, monsters, children, playthings and, finally, gradually, compassionate, honest, loving adults. Across one intense night of confusion, delusion, repression, permission, forgiveness and release, Shakespeare’s masterpiece moves right into the open heart of our multiple selves and conflicted identities – the only thing that we know for certain in this life is that, along with the climate, we are changing.

Rewind Tour 2014: Rascal Flatts with Sheryl Crow & Gloriana

Rascal Flats are one of today’s very successful country bands. They did an excellent cover of Tom Cochrane’s “Life is a Highway” a few years ago which was a hit. This prolific band has released nine albums since 2000, seven of which have gone platinum (or higher). Twelve of their singles have gone to Number One.

Sheryl Crow has a golden voice. Since she made a splash on the music scene with her first single “All I Wanna Do,” and her first album Tuesday Night Music Club, Sheryl Crow has been a mainstay in the music scene. Her captivating duet with Kid Rock “Picture” really showed her depth of emotion. Ms. Crow has released ten albums to date. Some of her work has been featured in movies.

Gloriana is an American country band which was formed in 2008 and garnered their first Top 40 hit with “(Kissed You) Good Night” in 2012. They have two albums to their credit, the last being A Thousand Miles Left Behind.

As the Thirty Years’ War swirls around her, Mother Courage scrapes together a living for herself and her three children by selling provisions to Protestant and Catholic combatants alike.

Christina, The Girl King

July 29 to September 21.

Opens August 14.

Enigmatic, flamboyant and unpredictable, with a passion for philosophy and the arts, Sweden’s Queen Christina seeks to make her country the most sophisticated in Europe. But her personal aspirations – and her unconventional sexuality – put her profoundly at odds with her culture’s expectations of her, both as a monarch and as a woman.

The Weeknd

The Weeknd is a rising PBR&B singer-songwriter. He initially uploaded some of his songs to YouTube which gained him a following amongst music fans. He has released three 9 track mix tapes since 2011 — House of Balloons, Thursday, and Echoes of Silence — which received much praise from music critics. In 2012 he released Trilogy which was comprised of reworked songs and some new material. That was followed last year with the album Kiss Land. He has been called the “best musical talent since Michael Jackson” by MTV’s John Norris. Quite a testimonial!
