This season’s performances range from Canada’s newest country superstar Dean Brody, to the ever-entertaining Gerry Dee (star of the CBC sitcom “Mr D”), to the soulful sounds of Boyz II Men and the heart pumping performance Broadway smash of ‘Rock of Ages.’
Kicking off with Titanic: The Musical on Thursday September 27, the 2012-13 season is set to thrill all Kingstonians with an array of big names from the worlds of theatre, dance, rock and comedy.
