Feel the magic, hear the roar

An original satire of that other feline musical, ThunderCATS: The Musical is inspired by the beloved 80s cartoon and brings a stacked cast of Edmonton’s best performers in tight leotards together with one throbbing, mystical sword on August 19.

Give some hell

On August 21, put your stomping shoes on and head out to Sherwood Park to see The Give ‘Em Hell Boys and The Suitable Men take the Festival Place stage for a night of country, rock, blues and jazz.
