In Flanders Fields: This stunning work was our inaugural Remembrance play in 2010, when it received a Betty Mitchell Award nomination for Outstanding Production of a Musical. Based on the extraordinary life of Lt.-Col John McCrae, IN FLANDERS FIELDS sweeps from rural Ontario to the mud of the French trenches, revealing the brotherhood, love, and true humanity of one of Canada’s most famous poets. In Flanders Fields is a co-production with Forté Musical Theatre Guild. Tickets are $25.

Field of Crosses: Over 3600 crosses have been placed along Calgary’s Memorial Drive and will be there until November 11. Each cross memorializes an individual solider from Southern Alberta who has made the ultimate sacrifice during active duty protecting our country.

Fast Love – A Tribute to George Michael: Experience the world’s most prestigious and professionally produced show paying tribute to the life and work of George Michael. Direct from London’s West End, this tribute show features all the hits from Wham! and his solo career, including Careless Whisper, Faith, Father Figure and many more.
