Well how y’all doin’ tonight? Welcome to the Wildcat Saloon!
Okay… so you’ve figured out that you aren’t really in Texas at a dusty old saloon, however, we plan to make you feel like that is exactly where you are all night. Our comedy spoof of the mega hit movie A Star is Born is intended to get you laughin’, toe tappin’ and singin’ along to country hits. I had the great pleasure to work with a writer who is new to our Jubilations Dinner Theatre main stage productions. Kayla Craig is an amazingly talented local Alberta writer who I hope to get to work with again before too long. Our goal in writing this show together, and for me while directing, was to parody this iconic music story in a way that captured all the fun without ever taking things too seriously. I think we pulled it off quite nicely and I hope you will too. So get yer boots ready for two steppin’ and bull riding ‘cause this here country party starts now!
One of the first shows I ever saw at Celebrations Dinner Theatre was Ghostbusted. The heart and humour of Bob’s writing was infectious. Getting to work with him and this company years later would have earned a high five from teenage me. I’d like to thank my brother Ty for his vast country song knowledge and my mom for taking her sweet time in remembering the name of that singer she once saw at a concert. (Spoiler alert: It was Garth Brooks).

A twisted Tea Party - (The Hatter), and a truly ridiculous and epic co-creation - (TITUS! The light and Delightful Musical Comedy of Titus Andronicus). He is based out of Vancouver, but please don't hold that against him.
Kelly is thrilled to be performing for all you here tonight. Born and raised in Winnipeg, Kelly started taking classical singing lessons at the age of five.

(Calgary) Kelly would like to thank Bob, the production crew, Coach, the ad-cast and her AMAZING cast mates. A big thank you goes out to Kelly's friends and family (Mom, I love you). Now get ready to kick up your heels for a boot scootin' time at the Wildcat Saloon. As always, tonight's show is dedicated to her late father, Stewart Benzing.
Hey Winnipeg! It's hard to describe how happy I am to be back at Celebrations playing Garth Jackson in Country Star! You may remember me from the infamous British Invasion, or the angelic Rock And Roll Heaven but when I am not on this stage, I'm on stages across western Canada with my band - Hungry Hollow. I'll have my CD's available after the show, so come say hi! I'd like to thank Bob Cunningham and WOW Hospitality for having me back and my precious wife Julie for encouraging me to follow my passions.
Hey y'all! Nice seeing you here! I'm thrilled to be back for my third show with Celebrations! You may remember me as Ray in "Star Warz: The Farce Strikes Back" and as Piper in "Orange is the New Pink." Other credits include Oliver! (Fagan's Gang), CATS (Macavity/Plato) and West Side Story (Anybody's). This time around, I am excited to bring out my country roots and get your boots stompin' and toes tappin' to some unforgettable country tunes! Now raise your glass of Jack and let's get this party started!!
