[They're] "like four thieves who've been stealing the show for years." --Toronto Star
Four men. Four microphones. No instruments. This is the formula for Canada’s celebrated vocal band, Cadence. Combining the lyricism of Stan Getz, the sophisticated harmonies of the Count Basie Big Band and the devil-may-care attitude of Louis Prima, this fabulous foursome has been entertaining audiences worldwide for over a decade with their innovative jazz arrangements, genre-hopping covers and eclectic originals.
The story of Hansel and Gretel has captured the imagination of audiences for generations. In NMT’s adaptation of this classic tale, two master puppeteers bring the most famous of the Grimm Brother’s stories to life. Features exquisitely crafted marionettes, scrolling scenery and the beautiful music of Engelbert Humperdinck.
In its 40-year history, NMT won puppetry’s highest award, the UNIMA, and tours in the US and worldwide. www.nmtshow.com

The Folk/Acoustic Open Mic night at TCAN has been a tradition since the opening of The Center years ago. And we could try to describe this event by mentioning all the significant songwriters and talented musicians who have played and sung and captured a special moment in time.
But the TCAN Folk/Acoustic Open Mic night isn't about individuals so much as it is about a community. Everyone is welcome to perform – the event starts at 8pm but sign-up starts at 7:30pm. Hosted alternate weeks by Mark Stepakoff.
