Horizon Stage Presents: Ian Tyson

Canadian Country Music Legend
Returning for his 48th performance at Horizon Stage – you love him, we love him, he is The One, The Only, The Legendary – Ian Tyson. Now in his eighties, Ian is still going strong. Still touring. Still running the ranch south of Calgary. Still watching the West as he’s seen it change — and not always for the better. Still writing about love, horses, and the country and sky he loves. And he’s still facing the future with a mixture of optimism and resignation. Now recovered from a torn and damaged voice that drastically changed his sound in 2008, Ian is singing with the strength and range of his earlier years. His smooth, relaxed voice has been part of the musical landscape since the early 60s, when — with his then-wife Sylvia — he conquered the folk boom of the day. Hits kept coming — “Four Strong Winds,” “Someday Soon,” “Summer Wages” and more. Over five decades Ian has earned countless awards, the Order of Canada, and a devoted following. He now stares at the future with clear eyes and a mixture of optimism and regret that sparks his songwriting.
THIS CONCERT IS SOLD OUT.

Horizon Stage Presents: ACEproductions – End of the Rainbow

Dramatic Musical Theatre
By: Peter Quilter Starring: Janet Gigliotti Directed by: Claude Giroux
There are moments in the theatre when you lean forward in your seat with shivers down your spine and realize there is nowhere on earth you’d rather be! Electrifying, intense, and real, this production will leave you breathless. End of The Rainbow is a true account of Judy Garland’s twilight years; an all-too-mortal goddess on the eve of her destruction revealed in a way seldom found in the tabloids. See that perilous bipolar energy that so often animates great performers. Touch this woman at your own risk – she burns. Every chapter of Judy’s history is alive; she is foul-mouthed, flirtatious, erotic, childlike, unedited, manipulative, and supremely self-conscious as she makes both love and war with her keepers. She has a strong sense of herself as a human tragedy on a world stage, but her sense of humour, and the absurdity of it all, is just as sharp and appallingly funny, and then…she sings! And all those disparate elements coalesce into a coherent riveting whole.

Horizon Stage Presents: One Man Star Wars Trilogy

Pop Culture Theatre
Officially endorsed by Lucasfilm, One Man Star Wars Trilogy has been performed for over a million Stars Wars fans from London’s West End to Dubai, and from Broadway to the Sydney Opera House. Canadian actor Charles Ross will stun and amaze you with his energetic and extremely entertaining performance that condenses the three original films: Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi, into one hilarious production. He single-handedly plays all of the characters – from Luke Skywalker to R2-D2 to Jabba the Hutt – with spot-on voice impressions. He also sings the music, flies the ships, and fights the battles. The successful result of a ‘misspent’ youth, Charles has been touring One Man Star Wars Trilogy for over 15 years. Called a “fun night out”, “innovative storytelling”, and “a tribute to all things Lucas”, this highly energetic romp is perfect for die-hard Star Wars super-fans while it also manages to amuse casual sci-fi consumers. Grab your lightsaber and board the Millennium Falcon before the Death Star explodes.
