THE BEST OF EDINBURGH FESTIVAL – 2 HIT SHOWS
JULIE MADLY DEEPLY
September 30 – October 19
Adored by millions, Dame Julie Andrews is a genuine legend of showbiz around the globe. This charming and cheeky musical show features songs from The Sound Of Music, My Fair Lady, Mary Poppins, Victor/Victoria and many more.
Julie’s incredible career is celebrated by a true super-fan: the award-winning singer, West End actress and international cabaret star Sarah-Louise Young, who has been named by Time Out as one of London’s Top Ten cabaret performers.
The brilliant songs are linked by stories and anecdotes about Andrews’ own life, from her beginnings as a child star to the recent challenges of losing her famous singing voice. What emerges is a delightfully funny and candid love letter to a true show business survivor.
THE BOY WITH TAPE ON THIS FACE
October 1 – 19
This unique silent comedy phenomenon has won standing ovations across the globe, including a sold-out season in London’s West End and playing for the Queen as part of the esteemed Royal Variety Performance. Now, The Boy With Tape On His Face comes to Toronto for the first time in this strictly limited season.
‘The Boy’ is New Zealand’s Sam Wills, whose piercing blue eyes stare out above a mouth that remains firmly sealed with gaffer tape throughout the show.

Each carefully prepared scene builds suspense until its hilarious and unpredictable climax… sometimes with the help of audience volunteers!
