DRUM! is a show with exciting and lively performances with a talented cast. Feel the electrifying rhythm as they present a spectacular musical production telling the story of the arrival and settlement of four North America’s founding cultures. Shown through the lens of the First Nations experience, DRUM! is a heart-pumping fusion of music, dance, video, rhythm and song.

Originally developed as a tourism piece for Nova Scotia and Canada in 1999, DRUM! has toured North America extensively, and has even been featured on a one-hour television special broadcast on CBC TV. Its ability to combine varied backgrounds and culture has captivated audiences and was declared by The Halifax Chronicle Herald as “unreviewable – it has to be experienced”.
