Passion of Piaf

Thursday, December 4th, 2014 - Love’s giddy highs and darkest lows – the ingredients of the exquisite ballads, the chansons of the bars and cafes of Paris. Celebrate the icons who brought them to life in this tribute including, Edith Piaf, Charles Aznavour, Maurice Chevalier and Michel Legrand. From Piaf’s warbling anthem La vie en rose, to Jacques Brel’s Ne me quitte pas, these beautiful heartfelt songs are a sometimes soulful, always passionate love letter from Montmartre.



Naughty… But Nice

Opens December 4th - A seasonal treat that knows that “Santa’s Your Daddy” and that there’s nothing better than “Bailey’s for Breakfast!” Forte Musical Theatre Guild is proud to present the 2014 Holiday Show, Naughty but Nice!

Sometimes racy, sometimes sweet, Naughty but Nice! takes a hilarious and slightly risque look at everyone’s favourite holiday season and promises to leave you with a song in your head and hope in your heart!


with-bells-onWith Bells On

Opens December 1st - An elevator. An uptight, recently divorced accountant. A drag queen dressed as a Christmas tree on her way to compete for the coveted ‘Christmas Queen’ title. When the elevator gets stuck her dream is in danger and an unlikely friendship is forged. This hysterical and heart-warming show reminds us that the spirit of Christmas can arrive in unexpected packages.
