Within an imposing log cabin in Niagara Falls exists one of the world's only opportunities to be served a steaming hot meal by a singing mountie. Over its nearly two-decade history, Oh Canada Eh? Dinner Theatre has performed for more than 750,000 audience members and earned Niagara Falls Tourism's Attraction of the Year award seven times. The theatre's namesake show puts Canadian pop and traditional songs in the mouths of wacky national characters including Anne of Green Gables, hockey players, and Klondike Kitty. And it isn't the only show on the menu: holiday attractions, themed musical revues, and the occasional Rocky Horror Show pop up on the calendar from time to time.
During most shows, the performer/servers whoosh from table to red-checkered table bearing an authentic Canadian feast. Dishes can include French Canadian pea soup, Alberta roast beef, and Manitoba roast chicken, and diners can sample any course they like?they're even welcome to ask for seconds. Maple-chocolate cake typically wraps up the extravaganza and provides an edible lumberjack beard of frosting.
The Kingston Canadian Film Festival celebrates local and national productions with a three-day presentation of new movies, film receptions, and director and cast discussions. Film enthusiasts explore the life and career of the late Nell Shipman in "On a Grand Scale," a curated exhibition that probes her theatrical contributions as an actress, writer, director, and inventor of the scrolling credit. The silent-film-era artist, known for portraying strong female characters throughout her 13-year career, starred in more than 20 films, including movies based on James Oliver Curwood stories. As the clock tolls 4 p.m., audiences make their way into a darkened theatre for a showing of Shipman's Back to God's Country— a taboo-shattering 1919 silent film set in the Arctic wilderness—which will be paired with live musical accompaniment and fake indoor blizzards.
When entertaining parties with music and entertainment, the DJs and emcees at Pied Piper DJ Entertainment won’t get rowdy unless hosts want them to.

In addition leading festivities, the team also organizes events and augments festivities with add-ons such as photo-booth rentals, bubble and fog machines, and karaoke.
Orchestra Toronto's inaugural 1955 season got right to the point. It had, after all, only one concert. That concert, however, made such an impact that the dedicated 55-member company, then known as The Bennington Heights Community Orchestra, continued to perform works alongside a string of renowned conductors until 1998, when it put its magical rings together and morphed into Orchestra Toronto. The largest distinction between Orchestra Toronto and other companies: it's truly a community project, corralling volunteer musicians to make up its 80-member team and deliver everything from Mendelssohn symphonies to flamenco concerts.
When Theatre Passe Muraille opened in 1968, it transformed the historic landmark Nasmith Bakery and Staples into a sanctuary for new Canadian art. But true to its name, the theatre is not constrained by any walls?literally or figuratively. Besides encouraging independent and experimental works, Theatre Passe Muraille expands beyond its brick-and-mortar location to stage innovative site-specific performances throughout Toronto. They practice a collaborative philosophy in order to achieve their far-ranging goals, valuing value risk higher than success or number of bouquets tossed onstage.
