“With the pandemic restrictions lifting, I needed live theatre in my life more than I realized. To me, sharing the space and the experience provided me with the deeper connection that had been missing.” – Audience Member

Ring of Fire: The Music of Johnny Cash

June 8 to June 25, 2022 (Rescheduled from 2021 season)

Created by Richard Maltby, Jr.
Conceived by William Meade
Adapted from the Broadway Production by Richard Maltby, Jr. and Jason Edwards

From the songbook of Johnny Cash comes this unique musical about love and faith, struggle and success, rowdiness and redemption, and the healing power of home and family. More than two dozen classic hits, including “I Walk The Line,” “A Boy Named Sue,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” and the title tune. Performed by a multi-talented cast, these songs paint a musical portrait of The Man in Black that promises to be a foot stompin’, crowd pleasin’ salute to a unique musical legend. Johnny Cash’s remarkable life story is told through his music, climaxing in a concert that will both move and exhilarate!

From the opening chords to rockabilly, to searing ballads and gentle songs of love and deep faith, Ring of Fire celebrates the songs that are such a part of our collective experience.

Ben Caplan stars in Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story.

Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story

July 27 – August 13, 2022
Created by Hannah Moscovitch, Christian Barry & Ben Caplan

This Klezmer-folk music-theatre hybrid starring Hamilton’s own genre-bending sensation Ben Caplan is inspired by the true stories of two Jewish Romanian refugees coming to Canada in 1908. Old Stock: A Refugee Love Story is a humourously dark folktale woven together with a high-energy concert about how to love after being broken by the horrors of war.

It’s about refugees who get out before it’s too late, and those who get out after it’s too late. And it’s about looking into the eyes of God.

Old Stock has toured to 29 cities around the globe, receiving many awards and accolades along the way including a Herald Angel Award, Edinburgh Fringe First, seven Theatre Nova Scotia Merritt Awards, six Drama Desk nominations, including Outstanding Musical, and a New York Times Critics pick.
