Upcoming Events at the Regent Theatre in Oshawa – January/February, 2019
Abbamania and Night Fever – January 19, 2019
ABBAMANIA is an all Canadian cast that is quoted as the #1 and largest production of ABBA in the world with a fantastic look, vocals and sound. A cast of studio musicians, ABBAMANIA recreates ABBA in concert. Their authentic costumes, vocal collaboration and stage performance exude an extraordinary re-creation of the magic and excitement of ABBA.
NIGHT FEVER is the ultimate tribute to the Bee Gees. This show takes you back to the sound and the look of one of the greatest Pop Bands in history, The Bee Gees. For five decades – a time span more than any other group in pop history – the Bee Gees outwitted the international music scene with their incredible tenacity to remain current through all the eras of contemporary music. It’s an all-around amazing show that captures the sound and look of the Bee Gees.
Amazing Kreskin – Feb 2, 2019
With a showman’s flair, a comedian’s wit, and the capacities of a bona fide Mentalist or thought reader, The Amazing Kreskin has, for six decades, dramatized the unique facets of the human mind…his own. His very name has become an integral part of pop culture throughout the world. During the past fifty years Kreskin has had a television series, his own board game by Milton Bradley, twenty published books, and a major motion picture inspired by his work.
In the 1970’s Kreskin headlined his own television series for five and a half seasons called, ‘The Amazing World of Kreskin’. The airline industry estimates that Kreskin has flown over 3 million miles, to reach a vast international audience with his unique brand of Mentalism.
At 83 years of age, Kreskin shows no signs of slowing down. He continues to perform his legendary live shows in front of packed audiences around the world, playing over 200+ dates yearly.
Classic Albums Live: Queen, A Night at the Opera – Feb 8, 2019
Queen’s ‘A Night at the Opera’ was a game changer for rock ’n’ roll. If you grew up in the 70s, this album was everywhere. All of a sudden, long haired rockers were singing along to operatic songs with soaring arrangements. A far cry from Foghat.
Queen became one of the world’s greatest bands by working hard. They toured endlessly and in the studio – they strived for perfection. And that’s our challenge. How do you learn perfection? Answer: By working hard.
Nick Walsh rallied to sing this album. Originally a rock singer, Nick found his theatre vibe singing the David Bowie, Ziggy Stardust album. Now he’s immersed in the brilliance and effortlessness of Freddie Mercury’s voice. Alongside the vocals comes the challenge of Brian May’s overdubbed guitar sound. We’ve got a small army of guitarists to cover the flash and fun.
Classic Albums Live loves a good challenge. Queen provides just that. We’re all familiar with “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “You’re My Best Friend” but it’s the deep tracks like “Prophet Song” and “Love of My Life” that reveal a profound depth of songwriting. We’re ready.
Material Girls – Feb 15, 2019
The producers of Abbamania, Night Fever and The British Legends bring you the Material Girls.
Join us for an evening of music by Material Girls – Featuring tributes to Madonna, Cher, Lady Gaga and Adele. These Ladies captures the elegance and essence of a Madonna, Cher, Lady Gaga and Adele concert experience. Their voices are spot on and their looks may actually have you thinking that they’re actually the 4 artists themselves. This show comes with a Live Band…. drummer, bass, guitar, keys and back up singers.
Combine the Material Girls of yesterday and today take the diva experience to a whole new level.
Classic Canadian Rock with Prism, Feb 23. 2019
NASA chose Prism’s “Spaceship Superstar” as the official song aboard Space Shuttle Discovery during its historic final flight, which speaks to Prism’s ongoing popularity, even in outer space! Meanwhile, back on earth:
They’ve sold millions of albums, with songs that have become radio standards – Spaceship Superstar, Take Me to the Kaptin, Flying, Armageddon, Take Me Away, Young & Restless, Night to Remember, Don’t Let Him Know among them. Prism itself is classic rock.
