“THE GREAT BIG BOO!” is Coming to a City Near You This Fall

Corus, Cineplex and Wondersee debut live-action family friendly Halloween show

Corus Entertainment, Cineplex and Wondersee Entertainment have partnered to launch “The Great Big Boo!,” a live-action, family-friendly Halloween show that will tour Cineplex theatres across the country this fall, from October 18 to October 30.

The 50-minute non-scary live show follows the story of Zoe and Justin who sing and dance their way through Boo Alley on a quest to save Halloween, meeting larger-than-life characters along the way. The show features a dynamic original score and spectacular dance numbers. After each show, the audience will be invited to meet the stars and join them for a fun, trick-or treat event.

“Halloween is truly a holiday for children, a chance for them to pretend and have fun,” says Patrick Roberge, President of Wondersee Entertainment. “The Great Big Boo! embodies this in a spirited musical-theatre way that is fun for all ages. This new national holiday tradition, is a unique show that will bring families across Canada together to share quality time, entertainment, and some trick or treating fun.

Million Dollar Quartet: The Story of the Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll Jam Session

Western Canada Theatre celebrates the start of its mainstage  season with the explosive energy and music of Million Dollar Quartet, playing October 12 to 21 at Sagebrush Theatre. Inspired by the greatest jam session of all time, this rocking musical builds around a warm December evening in 1956 that brought Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins together at Sun Records. They joked, they brawled, and for that one evening, they forget their troubled, complicated lives to do what they loved best: make music. In the process, they made rock ‘n’ roll history!

Million Dollar Quartet, written by Colin Escott and Floyd Mutrux, brings some of Canada’s best musical theatre artists to the Continue reading Million Dollar Quartet: The Story of the Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll Jam Session
