Harbourfront Theatre has published its fall 2019 to spring 2020 line-up this month with shows announced from October through April.
“We have a lot of genres being represented,” says Kieran Keller, Harbourfront’s executive director. “Theatre, dance, ballet, musical theatre, young audience, tribute shows, local artists, national celebrities, circus, comedy.”
For fans of theatre, Harbourfront will present Newfoundland-based theatre company Artistic Fraud’s play Between Breaths on April 19. For those interested in musical theatre, Fandango Musical Players Inc. returns in early December with their community production of Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods, and for the young and the young at heart, Harbourfront presents DuffleBag Theatre’s Sleeping Beauty on December 29.
Classic rock, country, folk, and contemporary genres are represented in this year’s music line-up. Local artists include Rachel Beck featuring the Atlantic String Machine, Chad Matthews in his Tribute to Stompin’ Tom, and Lennie Gallant’s The Innkeeper’s Christmas.
This season Harbourfront also welcomes The Irish Rovers, Les McKeown’s Bay City Rollers, Downchild Blues Band, Ryan Cook & Sunny Acres, and JUNO-winner Jeremy Dutcher.
This season at Harbourfront also features a circus show with Gravity & Other Myths, a hip-hop/contemporary dance show with company Tentacle Tribe, and a Prince Edward Island debut performance of Canada’s Ballet Jörgen’s Anne of Green Gables – The Ballet™.
