It is hard to believe but November 2017 is just around the corner. Maybe it has something to do with the beautiful weather we are experiencing this October, or the rain drenched spring and fall that did so much damage to our waterfront park.

The performance to November 2017 look to provide us with another wonderful month of live entertainment for every age group, with the end of the month starting to incorporate Holiday themed performances.

Here is what is coming to the Oakville Centre for November 2017:

Fatty Legs

November 2017 Fatty Legs

Fatty Legs published by Annick Press; illustrated by Liz Amini-Holmes

The true story of an Indigenous girl’s resilience at Residential School.

Fatty Legs, which mixes song, storytelling and dance, is based on the children’s book of the same name by Margaret Pokiak-Fenton and Christy Jordan-Fenton. The production uses choral soundscapes, contemporary dance and text from the book to tell the true story of Olemaun, an eight-year-old Inuit child who left her home in the High Arctic to attend a residential school in Aklavik. Olemaun was tormented by her caregivers, forced to cut her hair, forsake her language and take the English name Margaret. Fatty Legs brings to light the suffering created by residential schools while celebrating the deep strength of a young child who refused to be broken by her experiences.

This performance takes place on Thursday, 2 November 2017 at 8:00 PM in the main auditorium. It is present by Xara Choral Theatre. Tickets: PWYC

Buffy Sainte-Marie

Buffy Sainte-Marie’s bold new album, Power in the Blood, begins where it all started more than 50 years ago, with a contemporary version of It’s My Way, the title track of her 1964 debut.

Perhaps you know Sainte-Marie from her 1960s protest anthems (Universal Soldier), open-hearted love songs (Until It’s Time for You to Go), incendiary powwow rock (Starwalker), or the juggernaut pop hit Up Where We Belong, which Sainte-Marie co-wrote and Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes sang for the soundtrack to An Officer and a Gentleman. One of her earliest classics, Cod’ine, a harrowing account of addiction well ahead of its time, was covered by everyone from Janis Joplin to Donovan to Courtney Love. Whatever the case, every song and every era has revealed new and distinctive shades of an artist revered for her pioneering and chameleon ways.

This performance will take place on Wednesday, 15 November 2017 at 8:00 PM in the main auditorium. Tickets: $70
