Adam Crossley in Concert
Produced by: Orillia Opera House

 

Adam Crossley is a Nashville-based singer-songwriter. Raised in South Jersey, he began playing music at an early age, and by the age 7, had already begun penning his first songs. “There was always music in the house. I would fall asleep on the floor in the middle of my dad’s full-band rehearsals,” Adam reminisces. When his family moved to Cottontown, Tennessee, Adam began pursuing music as a career and truly honing his craft.

After writing songs and playing live shows in Nashville, Adam got his first real taste of the music business when he and his former band received recognition from a Canadian film and television production company. In 2005, Adam moved to Toronto to begin writing for other artists, television and film. Josh Groban recorded his song “So She Dances” on his Awake album. This song was a stand-out on the record and was a performance choice by Groban on Dancing with the Stars, The Oprah Winfrey Show and The Simpsons.

In 2010, Adam released his first solo album Anvil of a Heart. His single, “Beautiful World (We’re All Here)” went to #4 on the AC Billboard charts in both the US and Canada.

Willie, Waylon, Johnny Highwayman Tribute
Produced by: Crossfire Productions

 

Look alike/Sound alike Tribute artists to Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash-The Highwayman performing many of their best known hits such as Dukes of Hazzard (Good Ole Boys), On the Road Again and Walk the Line.  Two hours of entertainment with a 20 minute intermission.

In 1984 Johnny Cash was taping a CBS Christmas special in Montreux Switzerland.
His guests for the show besides June Carter Cash were Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson,
Waylon Jennings and his wife Jessie Colter. The Highwaymen were born. Never before
in country music had a recording group of such country superstars existed. Waylon and
Johnny (and June) are no longer with us but their music lives on ... remembered and
performed by look and sound alike impersonators Bob Gill and Jim Yorfido.
Both have successfully toured internationally performing to sold out shows and are said
to be the best in the world at their craft of emulating their heroes Waylon and Johnny.
Their appearance and vocals are so much like the original artists it is uncanny. They are
joined by Willie Nelson impersonator Guy Melanson who lends his excellent vocal and
instrumental talents to the show. These three are the Highwaymen road show and are
backed by their excellent 5 piece band.
Remember such hits as Ring of Fire, On the Road Again and Good 01' Boys to name
a few. A bit of history - Waylon was to be on the same plane with Buddy Holly that
crashed but lost his seat to the Big Bopper in a coin toss. It took him years to get over
that as he felt somehow responsible.

The Comic Strippers
Produced by: Shantero Productions 

 

The Comic Strippers are a fictitious male stripper troupe, played  by a cast of some of Canada’s best improvisational comedians. These guys try to be sexy… it just comes out funny. Constantly grooving and gyrating, in between scenes they banter with the crowd and perform their sexylarious twist on improv sketches. They sing, they “dance;” these guys are oiled up and ready to make you laugh. Women often say the most attractive thing about a man is his sense of humour - so ladies, these stripped-down comedians are sure to make your head explode. And not to worry, gentlemen, this is definitely a parody of male strippers. Some of the performers have what’s called 'Comedy Bodies' - they will make you look fabulous by comparison!

Semi-undressed and completely unscripted, The Comic Strippers take off their shirts and take on your suggestions to create a whole new genre of comedy.

WARNING: No extreme nudity, just extreme hilarity. A show for all genders… 19+ only

Fresh from sold out shows in Vegas, Australia and Canada, The Comic Strippers are:
Roman Danylo - For five seasons, Roman starred on CTV’s Comedy Inc. As a stand-up comedian, he has appeared on Just For Laughs and The Debaters.
Ken Lawson - Ken starred in the Canadian sitcom Health Nutz and has performed all over North America with The Vancouver Theatre Sports League and The Second City
Chris Casillan - An improv comedy vet with The Vancouver Theatre Sports League, Chris is also a Canadian Comedy Award winner with his sketch comedy group Canadian Content.
Pearce Visser
Pearce is a 25 year veteran of improv, performing and teaching across Canada and the globe, is in the Cirque du Soleil talent roster, and can be seen occasionally on film and tv.

Wingfield Unbound
Produced by: Orillia Opera House

 

In his fourth season on the farm (and his first as a married man) Walt Wingfield tries to preserve the memory of the old rural community of Persephone Township by promoting the crumbling Hollyhock Mill as a museum site. But the locals say the mill is haunted. Undaunted by such superstitious fears, Walt sets out to prove to the neighbours that there's nothing to this curse business - with near disastrous results.

"Beattie's Walt… remains an endearing companion for a night out at the theatre."
- Jamie Portman, The Ottawa Citizen

"a marvellous time with good-hearted stories. Five (out of five) Stars!"
- Geoff Chapman, The Toronto Star

Classic Albums Live:
Lightfoot - Sundown

Produced by: Inside the Music

 

Classic Albums Live performs the music of home town boy Gordon Lightfoot’s SUNDOWN.  Sundown is Canadian singer Gordon Lighfoot’s tenth original album, released in 1974 on the Reprise Records label.  It reached #1 in the US on the pop chart, the only Lightfoot album to achieve this.  In his native Canada, it topped the RPM 100 for five consecutive weeks, first hitting #1 on June 22, 1974, the same day it reached the top on the south of the border.
The album marked the pinnacle of Lightfoot’s acoustic folk-country blend before he embarked on an increasing use of electronic instruments, although he did include some electric guitar, notably on the title track.

As for singles, the title track reached #1 on the pop and adult contemporary charts as well as #13 on the country chart, while “Carefree Highway” reached #10 on the pop chart, #1 on the AC chart and #81 on the country chart.

ALOHA (Featuring Steve Michaels)
Produced by: Live Act

 

Born to play Elvis Presley from the Golden to the Vegas years, International award winning tribute artist Steve Michaels executes a dynamic portrayal of authenticity that makes him one of the most highly praised and sought after Elvis stylists in the country. Straight from his extended run at the Mirvish Theatres in Toronto, starring in last Summer's Blockbuster “Return to Grace", Stephen's list of credits and achievements are impressive but more impressive is the passion he brings to the stage.

With amazing accuracy, Steve delivers an astonishing high-energy stage performance mastering the look, sound, vocal dexterity, and mannerisms of the King of Rock & Roll. His styling, musicianship and ability allow Steve to successfully capture an authentic portrayal of Elvis Presley’s entire career from the early Sun Studio recordings, through the army, movie, '68 Comeback, and to the explosive concert years.

Recognized for his talents, Steve was honored to entertain guests from Elvis Presley's musical past at the Eleventh Annual Elvis Presley Memorial Dinner and was a featured guest at Elvis Presley Enterprises "Memories of Elvis" review in Memphis, Tennessee presented by Elvis International Forum the Magazine. Commemorating the 30th anniversary of Elvis’ passing, Stephen returned to Memphis as a featured performer for the 2007 production "The Spirit of the King" concert.

Featured in theatres, and television shows around the World , Steve has directed, co-produced, and produced his own sold-out concert productions to over whelming success. Always striving to be “The Very Best” Steve's company, TVB Productions, has recently completed the multi camera high definition filming of "Live and the Rose" an incredible live performance capturing the essence of Stephen and his extraordinary 14 member ensemble in concert.
