CLASSIC LIGHTFOOT LIVE at The Gayety, Sat. June 10, 2017

(Please note the show has been rescheduled from May 13 to June 10, 2017)

John Stinson is a proud Canadian musician who’s been performing in the Toronto area for over 30 years.

One constant throughout the ever-changing soundtrack of the years, was the music of Gordon Lightfoot. In 1988 John moved to Aurora. There, he became neighbours with Lightfoot’s lead guitarists of the last five decades.

“Spending time with Red Shea and Terry Clements brought me even closer to understanding the details and nuances of of Lightfoot’s music. To me, Lightfoot’s music really does reflect what it means to be Canadian. His lyrics tell stories; his stories, our stories, Canadian stories. They reach out and touch audiences in deep emotional ways.”

Since 2007, John has been dedicated to recreating his favourite music in a full theatre show, featuring highlights from Lightfoot’s 20 studio albums. He performs with a very impressive supporting cast of musicians. Each of them has been influenced by Lightfoot’s music and the passion comes through in every performance!

Threshold of Magic: July 19, 2017

@ The Gayety @ 8:00 PM

The Death and Life of Tom Thomson, an 80-minute one-man show, brings Thomson’s artistic genius to life in brilliant colour and verse. The play begins at the moment of Tom Thomson’s accidental death while canoeing in his beloved Canoe Lake. Invited by a benevolent spirit-guardian, Ralph Waldo Emerson, to explore his life and art, Tom recalls the relationships and inspirations that contributed to his amazing artistic legacy.

The play examines the intersection of art, human relationships and nature. The audience is allowed an intimate look into the character who drew from a deep appreciation and love of nature, technical excellence, and a desire to express the infinite through his art. Drawn from historical documents as well as conversations with members of the Thomson family, this work brings to life this iconic Canadian legend.
The play is written and directed by Barry T. Brodie and will be performed by Jeffery Bastien. It is a cooperative production by Sho–Art, Spirit & Performance and the Arts Council Windsor & Region

Neil Simon’s widely acclaimed and well-loved movie, Barefoot in the Park, is sure to be a triumph on our stage in 2017! This romantic comedy focuses on a pair of newlyweds, Corie and Paul, as they begin married life in a tiny, 5th-floor walk-up apartment in a Manhattan brownstone. Paul is a strait-laced attorney; Corie has a far more spontaneous, free spirit. As the young couple contend with a lack of heat, a skylight that leaks snow, several long flights of stairs, oddball neighbor Victor Velasco, and Corie’s well-meaning mother, they must also reconcile their own personal differences in how they approach life’s challenges. Adjusting to married life isn’t so easy but can be VERY funny!
