Christmas Show
Price: $30 plus hst adults, $15 plus hst children/youth 16 and under

The Ennis Sisters are embarking on their 8th season of celebrating Christmas with their family friendly spectacular Christmas show. In 2017, the Juno award-winning trio brings their highly-acclaimed holiday show to venues from coast to coast with concerts scheduled for Ontario, Alberta,British Columbia and finishing up with shows in their home province of Newfoundland. From their Christmas originals and holiday classics to their well-timed stories and folkloric recitations, this is a family-friendly show you won’t want to miss!

This is a five piece with all three sisters and two very skilled side men who also sing. The show consists of songs from their four Christmas albums plus some
traditional Christmas songs. They include stories of Christmas past and present plus some traditional Irish step dancing. The show contains a great deal of humour. The show is suitable for all ages. They do receive regular radio play for their signature Christmas hit, “ I’ll Be There Christmas Eve”.

From Bassano Arts Council president Linda Andres
The ENNIS SISTERS were absolutely fantastic!! One of the very best concerts we have had in 33 years - and my personal favourite. I was so looking forward to having them in Bassano, and their music was just out-of-this-world fantastic! I was not prepared for the humour - so that was a great surprise. Karen's wit and charm and dry sense of humour is incredible. We laughed so hard all night! All five of the group members were extremely easy to work with, and were all wonderful people.
From Moe McGuinty, Manager Of The Dekker Centre North Battleford:
“It was a full house and half way through the first song, the Ennis Sisters had captured the hearts of everyone in the theatre. The Dekker Centre, North Battleford, SK, has in its first three seasons, presented Grammy winners and Juno winners, members of the Order Of Canada and members of the Grand Old Opry. We have never presented an act that has been more warmly welcomed, enjoyed and appreciated. Word of mouth would have filled the house again the very next night. We can’t believe we have to wait a year.”
At the Keyano Theatre in Fort McMurray, the Ennis Sisters drew a near capacity crowd of 520. Theatre Manager Alan Roberts comments:
“The Ennis Sisters put on a fantastic show! They have a fantastic, welcoming interaction with the audience and presented their show with great story telling,

SUDDENLY MOMMY - with Anne Marie Scheffler - 7:30 p.m.
With Anne Marie Scheffler
Price: 26.50 PLUS TAX

Suddenly Mommy – Anne Marie Scheffler- This hilarious one-woman show takes us through every mom’s experience of good times, bad advice, and trying to do it all. From hot dates to play dates, experience the rollicking rollercoaster of motherhood. Because no matter how you planned it, it always comes suddenly!

"Anne Marie Scheffler didn't think motherhood would be this hard. She thought she could be the sexy show biz mom with a baby in one arm, and a movie script in the other. Her jarring realization otherwise makes for a humourous and entertaining show. Great idea for a ladies night or date night with couples or lovers of theatre.
