UPROOTED Theatre presents, “I Have Before Me a Remarkable Document Given to Me By A Young Lady From Rwanda” – Feb. 17 at 7 p.m.

Set in London in 1999, five years after the horrors of the Rwandan genocide, this touching piece crafted through a series of conversations offers the audience a glimpse of the atrocities that occurred in Rwanda. The play charts the bittersweet relationship between the two characters, Simon and Juliette. Simon is a struggling poet struggling with insecurities stemming from his faltering career. Juliette, a descendant of the Tutsi tribe, attempts to help the people of the world by writing a book addressing the terrible events of the Civil War in her home country, Rwanda.

 

The two meet while Juliette is living in a hostel in London. Juliette finds through her friendship with Simon – though limited to their writing project – a pathway to spiritual healing. Simon finds in Juliette a stunning example of resilience, African pride and familial love, while simultaneously regaining his confidence as a writer. This show is sponsored by the Hamilton Education Foundation. Tickets are for reserved seating. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students.

 

Guy Lombardo’s Royal Canadians with Al Pierson – April 2 at 7 p.m.

Countless people remember with nostalgia the tradition of Guy Lombardo with his Royal Canadians playing at New York City's Waldorf Astoria on New Year's Eve. Since then, the playing of “Auld Lang Syne” at the stroke of midnight has become a tradition. Enjoy the Guy Lombardo’s Royal Canadians Orchestra with conductor Al Pierson as they play the wonderful tunes of yesterday: “Seems Like Old Times,” “Boo Hoo,” “Coquette,” “Sweethearts on Parade” and “Ain't She Sweet,” as well as an occasional Lombardo style arrangement of contemporary classic pop tunes. Reserved seating tickets are $25 for adults, $20 for senior citizens and $10 for students.

 

John Waite, Unplugged – April 15 at 7:30 p.m.

John Waite's career ignited in the ‘80s with the MTV-radio staple “Change” and then exploded with smash hit “Missing You,” which went to No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. In 1989, as front man for the pop-rock super group Bad English, “When I See You Smile” (penned by Diane Warren) sparked sold-out concert tours and a succession of Billboard Hot 100 Hits. John Waite is set out to rock on "Rough & Tumble," which will be his first new studio album in four years when it's released on Feb. 22 and features hot new single, "Shadows Of Love." This performance is supported by the Milwaukee Marriott West and Proline Entertainment, LLC. Tickets are for reserved seating. Advance tickets are $25 for adults and $15 for students. Add $5 at the door.
