Across the Pond – The British Invasion

A great time was had by all on Opening Night at Across the Pond – The British Invasion! Leisa Way & The Lonely Hearts Club Band rocked our socks off and received a standing ovation at the end of the evening. The crowd at the sold out show clapped, sang along and there was even some dancing in the aisles!! If you haven’t yet, grab some tickets before it’s too late. A big Thank You to Theatre Collingwood for always making us feel special and giving Royal LePage Trinity Realty a shout-out before the show.

 

Royal LePage Trinity Realty is proud to sponsor Theatre Collingwood’s production of Across the Pond – The British Invasion  which runs from July 10-14, 2018. For tickets call 705.445.2200 or visit theatrecollingwood.ca

Celebrate 50 years of British pop and rock music, from those thrilling hits of the 1960s to today’s biggest stars. It features the music of the “Fab Four” (the Beatles), the Rolling Stones, Elton John, Petula Clark, Dusty Springfield and many more great artists, who came to North America from Britain and Europe.

From the first few bars to the final chord, you’ll be swept away on a fabulous musical adventure! Leisa is backed up beautifully by her band of talented musicians who, on several numbers, take over the vocals while she makes one of several costume changes.  Joining her on stage, are our favourites: Bobby Prochaska of Toronto, bass and lead vocals; Fred Smith of Kitchener, guitars and lead vocals; Nathan Smith of North Bay, fiddle, guitars, mandolin and lead vocals; Bruce Ley of Mulmur (near Shelburne), piano, guitars and lead vocals; and Sam Cino of Guelph, drums and lead vocals.

Mixed in with the phenomenal music, is a great narrative about the “British Invasion.”  You’ll learn that Paul McCartney wrote a song for British pop duo Peter and Gordon (Peter Asher and Gordon Waller) to record, and it ended up knocking the Beatles’ top hit off the charts, along with other music history facts. The show contains a wide variety of music, superbly performed by this group of Collingwood favourites! See you there!
