Back by popular demand, Trivia Night #2. Get a team together, come in pairs or come solo, and we’ll have tables of 4 to 6 players each. Be prepared to answer questions around general knowledge, sports, music, logos, books, movies, etc. Prizes will be awarded to the top team! A raffle and silent auction will also be present, as well as a cash bar and snacks. Let's raise money for the kids and their families! Every 4 tickets purchased sends a family of four to The Children's Festival through the Good Neighbours Program.
Tickets: $15 + tax & service charge
If you have a team in mind, it’s best to buy four tickets to guarantee that you’re all sitting together. Otherwise tickets will be sold in pairs or singles and you’ll be paired up accordingly. It’s not a bad strategy as the winners from the last event were paired up and won! Get your tickets early as we anticipate another sold out event.
We look forward to seeing you there!

Music & Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by James Lapine
With Permission by Music Theatre International
The Brothers Grimm hit Broadway with an epic fairytale where worlds collide. James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone’s favorite storybook characters and brings them together for a timeless yet relevant piece and rare modern classic. The story follows a Baker and his wife who wish to have a child, Cinderella who wishes to attend the King’s Festival, and Jack who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.

Thursday, April 30 @ 8:00 pm
Bar opens at 7:00 pm | Concert starts at 8:00 pm
Thin Edge New Music Collective
Thin Edge New Music Collective (Toronto) and Ensemble Paramirabo (Montreal) team up to present a new programme exploring the spirit of collaboration.
Featuring Steve Reich’s award-winning “Double Sextet,” Louis Andriessen’s “Worker’s Union,” and the Vancouver premiere of a new work for all 12 musicians by Brian Harman, Raging Against the Machine reflects the desire to create a climate of shared resources, audience, and community. Touring across Canada, this exhilarating performance also embraces the mechanical, rhythmic qualities of Reich’s piece and the political undertones of Andriessen’s.
Next, both ensembles will move into uncharted territory when they each premiere a piece by a composer recommended by the other.
See you there!
General Admission seating. 19+
The Thin Edge Music Collective and Ensemble Paramirabo’s tour is presented with generous support from the Canada Council for the Arts.
