They’re back! Two of our favourite performers are back for one night only to wow you, make you laugh and get you dancing and singing along. Have you ever wondered how Debbie Collins would play the leading role in 'Annie'? Or Anita in 'West Side Story'? How about J.P. Baldwin as 'The Little Mermaid'? These are only a few examples of the roles that got away from these two zany performers. Debbie and J.P. have over 50+ years experience in Canadian Theatre and have some amazing tales to share! Come with them for a musical romp with wonderful songs and stories. . . and of course a behind the scenes, backstage look at what performers REALLY do. Guaranteed to be an entertaining and engaging evening of fun and laughter for all! Join us for cabaret style dinner in the theatre or for show only for this very special evening!

 Rant Maggie Rant

Saturday, January 25th, 2020

Doors open at 6:30 PM | Show at 7:30 PM

Tickets: $30 (Regular), $10 (Student) 

Celebrate Robbie Burns with scotch tasting and an unforgettable evening of Celtic music.

Watch a Special Rant Maggie Rant Video that was shot to celebrate their 10th Anniversary in 2018. 

Rant Maggie Rant brings an arsenal of instruments, styles and substance to their shows with versatility and virtuosity. The Stratford, Ontario band's personality shines through as a collective of six very unique and different artists in their own right, the sum of which create unforgettable moments on stage. For the past 10 years this multi-award winning band has consistently roused audiences from coast to coast.  

While Rant Maggie Rant sticks close to the musical roots of Ireland and Scotland, as well as the other 5 Celtic nations and Canada's East Coast traditions, these melodies are usually supported by the band's unique fusion of hand-drumming, dub/jazz bass, soaring vocals, harmonies and folk/blues/rock guitar. Led by fiddler Lindsay Schindler, the band is supported by centre stage vocalist Glen Dias, who also plays recorder and percussion, Barry James Payne on guitars/bouzouki, Daev Clysdale on whistles and accordion, Rob Larose on percussion and Steve Clark on bass.

Traditionalists love their approach as they perform time honoured tunes, but in a new and fresh way with an energy that will make you want to dance and rediscover your roots. With the addition of some not-so-traditional instruments, the African djembe, the Middle Eastern doumbek and Peruvian cajon to compliment the percussive underpinnings driving the rhythm, guitar and bass approach from more contemporary and urban styles - folk, rock, jazz, dub and blues.  Traditional melodies, Latin and Mediterranean rhythms, heartfelt shanties, revved up tempos and unexpected time changes all collide in original and contemporary compositions, often blending together to deliver an intoxicating performance. Don't miss this band.
