The second show in the 2018 Café Culture Series program is a knockout cabaret show intelligently constructed, written and performed by Marisa Quigley. Original and captivating performance poetry is woven with the evocative music of Tom Waits to create a tragic noir-style tale of Romeo and Rosie. Her strong, smokey singing voice exposes a world of desire, doubt, temptation, and desperation.
Definitely not to be mistaken for a tribute show!

Saturday June 2nd at 8pm sharp!


Whatever ails, a dose of Dr. Crask and his Swingin’ Elixir is guaranteed to get you on your feet. Playing swing dance tunes predominantly from the 30’s and 40’s. You’ll hear songs that were performed by Fats Waller, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Prima just to name a few. The rhythm and horn sections, together with the silky smooth vocals of Jen Salisbury create that lovely ‘little big band’ sound.

A singer dances within, a dancer sings within. Parvyn Singh is both, and exudes a seemingly effortless grace and purity in her movement and voice. A colourful and exotic end of year treat. A celebration of Indian culture both traditional and comtemporary. This show offers traditional Indian music featuring tabla, sitar and vocals as well as beautiful classical Indian dance contrasted by vibrant, energetic Bollywood dance routines.
