By Nicholas Wallace & Luke Brown

Whether you admit it or not, we all believe in something weird. Using magic and storytelling, illusionist Nick Wallace investigates the world of superstitions, psychics and other weird beliefs in a show not to be missed.

Confessions of a Redheaded Coffeeshop Girl
Written and Performed by: Rebecca Perry
Director: Matt Bernard
May 04-06, 7:30PM and May 06, 2:00PM
Anthropology graduate Joanie Little is stuck working as a barista. Rather than let this get her down, she decides to make the most of her “underemployment”. So, much like Jane Goodall did with chimpanzees, this upbeat Miss studies her only available subjects: the customers of her coffee shop “jungle”... hilarity ensues!

Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal: Minus One
May 4, 8:00 PM
Performing at gripping speed, thirty-five dancers jump, spin, and then melt into movements that are slower, hypnotic, though still inspired, before coming full circle to explosive expressiveness.

Lunch at Allen's - A Concert for Jake
May 8, 8:00 PM
Jake Thomas was severely injured in a catastrophic accident, leaving him a paraplegic. Jake is Ian’s son, a father of four and a filmmaker. Due to his expertise in the integration of film and music, Jake was the obvious choice to direct and edit the debut Lunch At Allen’s Live DVD for EMI Music Canada. There is no question that a love for one another runs deep in the Lunch At Allen’s group. Within days of the accident, Murray, Marc and Cindy were talking about what they could do to help Jake and family with the financial challenges that lay ahead … and so began the idea for these concerts.
