The Bert Church LIVE Theatre

Thanks to the support of theatre followers, the Bert Church Live Theatre 2017-2018 professional performance season was remarkable! The season featured 35 extraordinary shows, from George Canyon to Pinkalicious The Musical; Megan Lane, one of Canada’s best female guitarists, to a sold-out 54-40 show and an improv comedy with Colin Mochrie and Deb McGrath. Canada’s Ballet Jörgen performed Anastasia in an impressive dance show, and the Olate Dogs brought laughs and entertainment for the whole family.  There was certainly something for everyone!

The Theatre Professional Series kicks off in fall 2018 with its inaugural show Sept. 13, when the great country singer Aaron Goodvin will delight all with his magnificent voice and well-known songs. Following that, international star Terry Bozzio will enchant with his skills on the largest tuned drum and percussion set in the world. Duane Steele, paying tribute to the iconic singer and songwriter George Jones, will take to the stage in November.

Be sure not to miss Heather Rankin over the Christmas season, followed by the award-winning Canadian singer and songwriter Luke McMaster in February, and world-class artists The Celtic Tenors in April.

As always, Bert Church Live Theatre offers shows that entertain kids and adults alike, such as Spidey – A Magic Show in January 2018. In February, well-known Will’s Jams will have kids and their parents dancing, laughing and singing out loud from start to finish.

Take In a performance at the beautiful Bert Church Live Theatre, where every seat is a great seat, and the sound and lighting are fantastic. It’s easy to get there, parking is free and theatre-goers can bring refreshments into the auditorium while they enjoy the show.
