All The World’s A Stage at the Stratford Festival [Stratford, ON]

The Stratford Festival was born in 1953 when – through the vision of Tom Patterson – a group of players, aside the River Avon in Stratford Ontario, took stage under a canvas tent and wowed the audience with a live performance of Richard III. Since then, for the last sixty one years, hundreds of thousands […]

The Forest In My Room: Carousel Players [St. Catharines, ON]

The first Carousel Players performance I saw – Water Under The Bridge – was a huge hit with children and adults alike. The Forest In My Room is no different and it was an honour to be invited back. Written by playwright Thomas Morgan Jones, The Forest In My Room is described as a story […]

Get Involved at Water Under the Bridge: Theatre for Kids [St. Catharines, ON]

This Fall I had the pleasure of attending Water Under the Bridge – a participatory play by Carousel Players. Targeting children from Kindergarten to Gr. 3, this play was a HOOT! Not having any kids of my own, but wanting to showcase some parent friendly content on the site, I brought along the Local Lux […]

Come Back, Little Sheba at the Shaw Festival Theatre [Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON]

I had walked by it countless times, probably even eaten an ice-cream (or two) while leaning against its exterior, but had […]

Feast of Fields 2012: An Organic Adventure [Nobleton, ON]

To say that the 23rd annual Feast of Fields was a great success would be an understatement! This year was the first time I had the pleasure of attending this organic adventure and I am sure it will not be the last. My windows were down as I drove up Hwy 50 towards Nobleton and […]

Famished to Full at the Niagara Food Festival [Welland, ON]

In less than 2 hours, and with less than $20, I went from famished to full at this year’s Niagara Food Festival. Taking place in my beautiful hometown of Welland beside Merritt Island Park – this annual event attracts tens of thousands of locals and tourists alike. This year I was happy to leave both […]

Rockin’ Night at Rocky Horror [Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON]

I lost my Rocky Horror virginity on the 2nd floor of Corks Wine Bar and Restaurant in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Even though my tickets were waiting for me at the door, I showed up a little early because this show has general seating – first come, first served. Naturally, I wanted to make sure that I got […]
