From the snow-capped Rockies, across the vast Prairies, to the neon nightlife of the big cities and onto the rugged landscape of the Maritimes, music has united our diverse country for almost 150 years.
Oh Canada, What A Feeling! brings to life, through music and video, this vibrant musical legacy: from the early days of Guy Lombardo, Paul Anka, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young and the Guess Who, to the Seventies that brought us the distinct voices of Anne Murray, April Wine and Gordon Lightfoot and into the Eighties with the music of Gino Vannelli, Céline Dion, Loverboy and Bryan Adams. Their music, plus that of many other Canadian artists, will be celebrated as part of this exciting, spirited production. This inaugural show is the first in a series, and will tour the country, embracing Canada’s biggest cities as well as its smaller towns.
Oh Canada, What A Feeling! features a gifted live band, multi-talented vocalists, and a backdrop of historical and musical footage. Video vignettes of world and Canadian news events bring the eras alive, as the songs provide a soundtrack that inspire pride and admiration in Canada’s musical accomplishments… stirring joyous, and even poignant, memories. This show follows a number of its producers’ hit theatrical productions – Rain, Let It Be and the Australian Bee Gees, which have succeeded in entertainment centers like Broadway, London’s West End and Las Vegas. Oh Canada, What A Feeling! is impressive, innovative, music-driven theatre.
