Theatre Ancaster is kicking off the new year with four great shows for everyone — The Valentine Show at the Old Firehall Arts Centre with the Hamilton All Star Jazz Band, Joseph with Stage 2, Seussical with Stage 3, plus a spring concert with the new Theatre Ancaster chorus.
Valentine Loves Notes on Feb. 15 at 8 p.m. at the Old Firehall Arts Centre features the combined talents of Theatre Ancaster and the Hamilton All Star Jazz Band with great songs, great singers, great comedy and the great band sounds of the Big Band era. Tickets are $20. Call 905-304-TUNE (8863). On the night of the show, the box office will be open at 6 p.m.
The other three shows take place at the Theatre Auditorium at Ancaster High School. First up is Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat on Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 at 7 p.m., with a matinee on Feb. 2 at 2 pm. Joseph is a great family show filled with upbeat, fun-filled music that ranges from disco to calypso and from ballads to rock.
Up next is Seussical the Musical with the Cat in the Hat, Horton and all the beloved characters of Whoville. Seussical opens Feb. 21 with five shows ending March 1. Tickets for both Joseph and Seussical are general admission and can be ordered by calling 905-304-TUNE (8863) and leaving a message on ext. 2.
Theatre Ancaster’s Spring Revue runs the first two weekends in April. Back to the 80s is a nostalgic musical trip to the biggest hits from that decade of fabulous songs. The box office opens for phone orders on March 1 at 905-304-SHOW (7469) and for personal ordering of tickets, West Wing Foyer at Ancaster High on March 17. That’s also the same day community members can sign up for Theatre Ancaster’s summer camps beginning at 7 a.m.
The new 35-plus member Theatre Ancaster chorus salutes Oscar at the Old Firehall Arts Centre May 23-25. It’s a trip through the years since the academy started to choose top songs we all know and love.
