Wednesday, October 17, 7:30 at the Roxy we present
Prepare to be delighted when Steve is around. He lives as he was meant to be—a singer, songwriter and storyteller. When he opens his mouth on a concert stage you will hear songs spilling forth in a tender tenor voice that captures thoughts in images and makes them memorable in lovely tunes
Monday, November 12, 2012 at 7:30 in the Roxy Theater we present Jake's Gift.
Jake’s Gift is a powerful and surprisingly funny drama about a Canadian World War II veteran who reluctantly returns to Normandy, France, for the 60th Anniversary of the D-Day invasion. While revisiting the beach he landed on sixty years earlier, Jake encounters Isabelle, a precocious 10-year-old from the local village whose inquisitive nature and charm challenge the old soldier to confront some long-ignored ghosts – most notably the war-time death of his eldest brother, Chester, a once promising young musician.

starring Rod Beattie
Ed is a former farmer, part-time mechanic and full-time self-appointed community counselor who is ever ready to help people. Ed can fix just about anything – an old truck, a stubborn boat motor, even people’s problems. The folks of Port Petunia flock to Ed’s Garage for oil changes and sage advice. Everything’s running like a well-oiled machine until a psychotherapist from the city sets up shop next door, throwing a wrench into the whole business. Actor Rod Beattie, writer Dan Needles and director Douglas Beattie (Wingfield series) return with this light-hearted comedy.

Thursday, March 12, 7:30 at the Knox Presbyterian Church we present Destino
"Destino is made up of 3 handsome young men and one stunning young woman that love making beautiful music together. They have created something completely different, something that's never been done before: a group consisting of two very different voices and two very different instrumentalists, all able to stand on their own, but together forming a truly talented and unique troupe. Destino’s performances constantly inspire standing ovations. Fans love the fact that their music is “real”. It is melodic, inspirational, exciting, familiar, and draws from the present and the past, the pop and the traditional. It is truly a reflection of the diverse backgrounds and experiences of these four friends.
Individually and together, these four musicians have had some amazing performance experiences. They have been showcased on the NBC and ABC networks, they have also appeared on Entertainment Tonight, Canada AM, and E-talk. Some of the venues they've had the privilege of performing in include Carnegie Hall, Radio City Music Hall, Walt Disney World and St. Peter's Basilica. Performances at the Beijing Summer Olympics and the Vancouver Winter Olympics, the miss America pageant in Las Vegas also top these young performers list.
