  • Shrine Circus
    For generations, the Shrine Circus has merrily rolled the rings of their three-ring circus across the continent, stopping for more than a few performances along the way. Each show is different—acts come and go, and advances in clown-car technology are dutifully adopted—but some things never change: expect to encounter the boundless charms of the ringmaster (or ringmistress), a pack of daring acrobats, and more than a few show-stopping animals.

  • York Symphony Orchestra: Sibelius 150
    Hailing from Ontario's most musical corners, the 70–80 players who make up the York Symphony Orchestra awaken stirring echoes of classical mastery during their annual concert seasons. The ensemble, many of whom are professional musicians, often share the stage with guest artists handpicked from around the globe and drumsticks stolen from Mötley Crüe’s dressing room.

  • Les Coquettes ~ Cabaret Burlesque
    The cofounder and artistic director of Les Coquettes Cabaret, Catherine Skinner—known onstage as La Minouche—takes the art of public seduction seriously. In a video posted to the troupe's YouTube channel, she promises, “You'll see a little bit of dancing, a little bit of singing, a little bit of aerial circusry, and a little bit of _very_ tasteful striptease.” Setting comedy and titillation aflutter in a blizzard of double entendres, the troupe puts on shows that appeal to adult audiences of any age or gender. The aesthetic might evoke a Burtonesque gothic setting, the seven sexy seas of the pirate age, a neon-flooded nightclub of the '80s, or the future's inevitable dress code of sentient hairpieces. The company thoroughly impressed Kelli Korducki of The Torontoist, who praised the performers' "undeniable song and dance chops," adding that "cabaret patrons may come for the scantily clad dancers, but they will certainly stay for the talent.”

  • "Magic Tonight": Magic Show and Dinner
    A team of magicians, mentalists, and illusion-weavers entrances audiences at three historical buildings: The Franklin House (Mississauga Streetsville), The Crimson Lounge (downtown Toronto), and The Bear (Pickering). Every performance suspends audiences’ disbelief with a different cast, hosted by sleight-of-hand magician James Alan. The roster includes many of Toronto’s leading magic and mystery entertainers. Performers are announced regularly via Twitter and Facebook. Before dropping their jaws, guests can exercise them with an eclectic dinner menu, and bar service before and after the show allows attendees to demonstrate to their friends how they can make a glass of beer disappear by slowly drinking it.

  • Saint-Saens Organ Symphony
    There are advantages to wandering. Toronto Concert Orchestra reaches audiences throughout the greater Toronto area without having to play from the top of the CN Tower, thanks to an itinerant status that brings them to many venues and concert halls north of Highway 201. It's all part of the TCO's misson: to bring orchestral music to new audiences in new environments whenever they can.
