The City of Kingston's Grand Theatre has announced its new Grand OnStage 2019-20 season featuring dozens of shows from across Canada and across the globe. The Grand OnStage program presents a variety of entertaining and culturally enriching choices ranging from dance to theatre, young audience performances to comedy, and world artists to popular music concerts.
Many events offer community engagement opportunities with artists through pre-show In Conversations, post-show Talkbacks, Master Classes, artist residencies, and school performances.
"Our commitment to presenting unique Indigenous work continues in 2019-20, and I am looking forward to welcoming Cliff Cardinal's theatre production Huff, Jessie Lloyd's Mission Songs Project and Tanya Tagaq's Split Tooth reading and musical performance," says Jayson Duggan, performing arts manager.
The 2019-20 season features a number of 50th anniversary performances including the 50th anniversary tour of Lighthouse, The Legendary Downchild Blues Band, as well as The Beatles' Abbey Road that will be performed note for note, cut-for-cut by Classic Albums Live.
