A star-studded cast featuring some of the biggest names from the Canadian entertainment landscape will grace the Georgian Theatre stage in May, all in the name of community theatre. Big names and local acts come together to create an unforgettable night of music and theatre. “This is one of Barrie’s biggest cultural events of the year” says Theatre By The Bay Artistic Director Iain Moggach, “where we bring fantastic acts from across Canada to do a cabaret-style evening of song and dance.”
The May 13th event helps make the Theatre By The Bay season happen, according to Moggach, “It is a fundraising event, so all the proceeds from the night go directly towards supporting our two productions this year.”
Aside from the stellar lineup featured that evening, Stars Come Out also features a silent auction filled with over $10,000 in goods. Ticket sale prices also support TBTB operations. Orchestra tickets go for $64.50, while pods are $29.50. Opting for the VIP experience costs $125 but comes with added perks including access to some of the stars of the show.
Here are a few of the acts you’ll get to see:
Winner of several Covenant awards and nominated for multiple Juno awards, Mark Masri will be performing his pop, classical-crossover, and adult contemporary music for some lucky people at “Stars Come Out”.
It’s hard to watch Canadian television and not see Raoul Bheneja. From Murdoch Mysteries and Saving Hope to The Listener and Flashpoint, Raoul has been flexing his acting chops for over 20 years. Not only gracing the small screen, he has also worked on a plethora of films, including opposite Jessica Chastain in Miss Sloane.
From Peter Pan in Peter Pan, Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, and Princess Aurora in Sleeping Beauty, Aj Bridel has range! She acts, she dances, she sings, and she’s bringing all of her talents to the Georgian Theatre!
With her love of musical theatre always shining through in her performances, Alana Bridgewater brings her powerful voice and soulful style to Barrie on May 13th!
Other acts include Cornelia Luna, David Ball, Kyle Blair, Army of Sass Barrie, Alinka Angelova, Olivia Everett, and the Moving Art’s Triple Threat Program. The event takes place on May 13th at 730 PM at Georgian Theatre. For details and tickets check out the event page.
