This is a six month contract in the beautiful mountain town of Canmore, Alberta, located just one hour west of Calgary. Oh Canada Eh? Dinner Show is in its 13th year of production. The show is an all Canadian musical revue celebration of Canada, featuring the music of artists such as Shania Twain, Michael Buble, Paul Anka and Leonard Cohen, to name a few and the characters are based on recognizable Canadian icons. Performers are required to serve food and drink in our purpose built rustic style cabin theatre and must be prepared to obtain ProServe certification in alliance with AGLC (Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission).
