Beatles Replay Theater Shows Cornwall Hotel Events
 
Cornwall is home to some fantastic theater productions, but sometimes it can be difficult to choose. We’ve made it easier by rounding up the three best upcoming theatre shows for June, so whether you want something wild or introspective, or even something you can sing along to, be sure to check out these great performances.

 

Stag and Doe – June 11th-July 5th

This is one of the best new shows on the local scene, and a must-see for anyone who has a wedding story or two that they’d rather not share. The show follows Bonnie and Brad, a soon-to-be-wed couple who are holding their stag and doe at a local hall. Mandy and Rob, another couple whose wedding tent blows away, are invited to share the hall, but havoc ensues as the two couples deal with a criminal wait staff, vindictive bridesmaids, and each other. Get your tickets here.

A Night with the Beatles – June 19th

This isn’t simply a show—it’s a time machine! Travel back to the swinging sixties as Replay, Canada’s top Beatles tribute, plays the fab four’s greatest hits. From Hard Day’s Night to Sgt. Pepper to Let it Be, be prepared to sing along as Replay winds the clock back to some of the greatest hits this world has ever seen. The night is in support of Cornwall Girls Hockey. Get your tickets here.

Figments: a Comedy – June 19th-27th

We’ve all seen a play… but have you seen a playwright? Figments is a meta play about playwright Rick Jacobs who is, well, writing a play. Jacobs suffers from writers’ block, and the audience follows his thoughts as they bounce from his real life to his work of fiction. What’s real, and what are simply figments of his imagination? You won’t find out until you take in this hilarious comedy. Get your tickets here.

Whether you’re in the mood for bit of comedy, a bit of classic rock, or a bit of chaos, Cornwall’s theaters have something for everyone. Next time you’re in town, be sure to grab a ticket, and be sure to stay in our hotel, where luxury meets affordability. Book a room today. We look forward to your visit!

The excitement never stops in beautiful Cornwall, Ontario. Thanks to its picturesque location on the edge of the mighty St. Lawrence, and the ever-growing list of events that make their way through the region each month, for guests of our comfortable hotel, fun is never fun away.

This May, that fact is truer than ever, as a handful of great events will come to town. Here are some upcoming highlights!

John McDermott Live! | May 5

With multiple Juno award nominations, and platinum, double-platinum and triple-platinum recordings to his name, Scottish-born John McDermott has emerged as a true powerhouse of the Canadian music landscape. Now, he brings his innovative sound to the stage of Cornwall’s Aultsville Theatre, which you’ll find just moments from our hotel. The concert, which kicks off at 7:30 pm, will feature material from his latest release, Traditionally Yours.

Monster Slam Live Show | May 31

On the last day of May, Cornwall revs up for some high-octane fun, courtesy of Monster Slam, an all-out monster truck mega event hosted by the Cornwall Civic Complex. Tickets for this auto extravaganza range from $18 for general admission to $40 for special, VIP tickets. For the chance to see drivers like Jimmy Creten and Trent Montgomerry get behind the wheel of their 15,000 horsepower trucks, that’s a serious bargain! Furthermore, the deal is only sweetened by additional performances by speed bikers and ATV riders. Find more information on pricing and ticketing here!

May is always an exciting month in Cornwall. The snow melts, the weather warms up, April showers give way to May showers, and a whole slew of exciting events come to town to welcome yet another wonderful summer. This year, the action kicks off on the very first day of May. Yes, that’s right, this May 1st, two awesome and original events will roll into town, and because they both take place just moments from our hotel, they’re both very much yours to enjoy!

Here are the details!

Art Battle | May 1

For art enthusiasts, this is not one to miss. It’s Art Battle, the immensely popular, semi-competitive live art show that has taken the scene by storm. Hosted by The Social Conference and Event Centre, which is just a short drive from our hotel, this event kicks off at 7:00pm and costs just $20 to attend, with discounts available for students and seniors. And of course, there will also be plenty of art available for sale. Don’t miss the excitement!

Cornwall Comedy Festival |May 1-3

Whatever your ailment, laughter is the best medicine. Don’t believe us? Go find out for yourself at this hilarious event! The Cornwall Comedy Festival, which runs for the first three days of May, is hosted by the Aultsville Theatre. Just who will take the stage at this side-splitting festival? Names like Derek Seguin, Mike MacDonald, and the hilarious Bowser and Blue. Tickets for this one are just $25. Get yours before they’re gone!

Yes, this May, the fun begins right away, as two exciting events kick off on the very first day of the new month. Why not book a room at our centrally located Cornwall hotel and enjoy all that this beautiful slice of Ontario has to offer? We look forward to welcoming you to town!

Cornwall is home to a wide variety of great entertainment, and there’s nowhere hotter to have a seat than in the Aultsville Theatre. If you’re in town this April, be sure to check out some of these upcoming shows.
 
Buzz – April 18th

As the group would tell you, the word “Buzz” has two main definitions: “excitement over novelty”, and “a sound produced by vibrating the lips”. However, this group has added a third: “brass quintet”. And Buzz—the brass quintet in question—can do this because they fit the first two definitions so perfectly. Through exciting, modern arrangements of old classics, the group has combined their efforts with a pianist and harpist to create lively theatrical works guaranteed to entertain. Tickets start at $25.

Greasemania – April 19th

Grease is quite possibly the most endearing and enduring musicals of all time, and it’s still gracing stages around the world today. This is because the Broadway show and movie combine a great story with great music, and it’s this great music that is at the heart of Greasemania. With the great cast, costumes, and stageplay, you’ll feel like you’re in the movie as you take in some of the classic musical’s best songs. Tickets are $48.50.

Steve Patterson – April 25th

If music just isn’t your thing, then this is surely the option for you. Steve Patterson—best known as host of the CBC radio show The Debaters—is back on the circuit after a highly successful national tour. You’ll now be able to see Steve in all his hilarity on his new tour, “I Laugh Therefore I Think” right here in Cornwall. Steve is consistently labeled by nation-wide newspapers and even personalities such as Rick Mercer as one of, if not the funniest man in Canada. If you’re a fan of comedy, this is not one to miss. Tickets are $41.50.

Whether you’re a fan of buzzing brass, slick musicals, or rollicking comedy, Cornwall and the Aultsville Theatre have something for you. And after your show is over, be sure to stop by the Ramada Cornwall for accommodations that encompass both luxury and value. Book your room today. We look forward to your visit!

Hugo Mobility, in association with La Plume Moderne, are proud (sort of) to present Participation’s Music Hall Theatre Production, the First World Premiere of Syllabification from a Sycophant, starring APRIL SHOWERS and MAY FLOWERS (if they are available).

Participation is a curious quartet of musicians—Voice (and virtuoso Kazoo), Clarinet, Tenor Ukelele and Tuba—but what better way to bring alive the superbly singable songs of the “Paleolithic” (that is, Rag Time and Jazz) eras of the early 20th century? Anticipating that folk would be inspired to sing along, they chose their very name to serve as an invitation.

Syllabification from a Sycophant is a Multimedia Melange of Rag Time Music, Comedy and Images. Nothing naughty (except Bob’s Spotted Dick).

Are they any good?

“What a fun and entertaining troupe of skilled musicians accompanying the delicious, mellow voice of gorgeous Katie. Loved every minute!” – Katalin Kennedy
