Cornerstone Theatre & Restaurant engages area residents and visitors with year-round professional entertainment. The musical comedy Oh Canada Eh? Dinner Show continues its 10-season run with updated riffs on Canadian history, food, and themes. Featuring more than 70 national songs and homegrown talent, a two-hour, vaudeville-style performance lampoons characters from bombastic mounted police to flannel-wearing farceurs. Actors double as servers and get to know their patrons through interactive aisle excursions, flirtation, and cross-theatre pen-pal exchanges.
Cornerstone Theatre's recent menu takes audiences through four courses of upscale eats. French Canadian split pea soup premieres the ensemble, followed by roasted chicken, Alberta beef tenderloin, or battered Atlantic haddock—all served with vegetables and roasted potatoes. Lastly, the curtain falls on a sweet finale of maple chocolate swirl cake. Canadian wines, beers, and artistic opinions are available for purchase at the theatre bar.

About Cornerstone Theatre
Within Cornerstone Theatre's 6,000 square feet of raw Manitoba barn board and Alberta pine exists one of the world's only opportunities to be served a steaming hot meal by a singing mountie. The tuneful do-gooder is joined by one of Green Gables' many Annes, a melodious hockey player, the inimitable Klondike Kitty, and other wacky national characters in the Oh Canada Eh? dinner show. Over its 10-season run, the show has evolved to take in charting pop hits along with maritime folk songs and a rousing national-anthem closer.
Between bouts of onstage hilarity, the performer/servers whoosh from table to red-checkered table bearing an authentic Canadian feast, from an opener of French Canadian–style pea soup to entrees that include Alberta–style roast beef and Manitoba–style roast chicken. Humming along between bites, diners can sample any course they like and are welcome to ask for seconds. A round of maple-chocolate cake wraps up the extravaganza while providing an edible lumberjack beard of frosting.
Aside from the raucous Oh Canada Eh? dinner show, Cornerstone Theatre’s schedule also fills up with other special events such as Comedy Night, where stand-up comedians who have appeared on television launch their punch lines toward funny bones. Patrons can also rent out Cornerstone Theatre for special events of their own, such as wedding receptions, private parties, and corporate meetings.
