Footloose the Musical

Category: Musical

Performances at 8:00 PM from Wednesday, March 4th to Saturday, March 7th and a 2:00 PM matinee on Sunday, March 8th

The Oakville Players presents the explosive movie musical Footloose with exhilarating results.

When Ren and his mother move to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn’t prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing.

The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him. The 40 songs featured are Oscar and Tony-nominated.

We’ve Got Each Other – Starring Paul O’Donnell

Category: Musical

Performance on Friday, March 6th at 8:00 PM

The almost entirely imagined Bon Jovi musical. With the modern jukebox musical comes: a multitalented cast, orchestra, opulent sets, decadent costumes, extravagant routines, dramatic key changes and the odd hydraulic lift or two.

We’ve Got Each Other has none of these things (they cost lots of money), but Paul tries to create this all-singing, all-dancing spectacle using the powers of your imagination. Through entertaining descriptions of the show as it unfolds and 180+ lighting cues, Paul invites the audience to fill in the gaps imagining the breath-taking tragic love story of Tommy and Gina.

The Trews have countless radio hits, ecstatic fans from Dublin to Des Moines plus multiple EPs, and a pair of live albums and a retrospective.

Gord Sinclair is famously known as the bass player and backup vocals of the Legendary Canadian Band The Tragically Hip, starting in 1984 until 2017. He is an award-winning musician winning Canadian Screen Award for Best Entertainment Special and Canadian Screen Award for Best Performance. He has a new album “Taxi Dancers” coming out on February 28, 2020, and it is his first solo album from a member of The Tragically Hip since the passing of Gord Downie.
