Happy Birthday Canada, 147 years young!
In PEI this year, we are celebrating 150 years since the Charlottetown Conference that led to the formation of this great country. Things are ROCKING here today and we will top it off with the biggest fireworks show in Canada.
2014 also sees the return of the musical revue Canada Rocks. I saw The First Canada rocks in 2005, twice that year. I was ecstatic to see it come back in 2006 and saw it again. The following year, we were treated to British Invasion, and the year after America Strikes Back. For the next 5 years I was looking for a show to equal the performance. So I was thrilled to see it coming back for 2014.
Be prepared for a high energy show. This is a non-stop, one song after another, singing, dancing extravaganza that is sure to please people of all ages. The show features two dozen top notch singers and dancers that take you on a musical ride across Canada featuring artists and hits from the 60’s to today.
Music fans young and old will enjoy this show. There is something for everyone, including a tribute to our recently fallen East Coast legends.
Make PEI one of your summer destinations, and be sure to include Canada Rocks. It plays Thursdays Fridays and Saturdays at the Confederation Centre of the Arts.
I am planning a return trip to the theatre before the end of August. There is so much going on on the stage that you have to see the show more than once to take it all in.
