Next Friday November 10th, the Chester Playhouse will be alive and bursting at the seams with all of your favourite songs from famous Canadian artists. "Oh Canada,We Sing for Thee!" is a trip through the Canadian songbook with a four piece band and a VERY talented Leisa Way at the helm. The costumes changes in Oh Canada! will be epic as Leisa transforms from Shania to Joni to Anne in the blink of an eye. She'll be joined by a fantastic band called the Wayward Wind, who will provide the songs from Stompin' Tom, Leonard Cohen, Gordon Lightfoot and many more. Along the way the cast will share stories and tidbits about the songs and the artists. A sing-a-long with glamourous costumes, familiar music and at least seven wig changes? That's a beautiful thing.
You are now allowed to bring your on site purchased drinks into the theatre. Reason alone to partake in all things "Playhouse."
Back by popular demand, the Chester Drama Society once again presents another Malcolm Callaway outrageous Christmas play. This year sees the reprise of 'Grunion Bay' with a cast that includes a whole new generation of actors and even brings one of the original cast back as stage manager. Who knows what surprises await?
The play opens Wednesday, December 13th and runs through till the 16th.

Mary accompanied her husband, Paddy, to the doctor's office. After his checkup, the doctor called Mary into his office alone. He said, "Your husband is suffering from a very severe stress disorder. If you don't do the following, your husband will surely die. Each morning, fix him a healthy breakfast. Be pleasant at all times. For lunch make him a nutritious meal. For dinner prepare an especially nice meal for him. Don't burden him with chores. Don't discuss your problems with him, it will only make his stress worse. If you can do this for the next year, I think Paddy will regain his health completely." On their way home, Paddy asked Mary. "What did the doctor say?"
"He said you're going to die."
