Martin discovers his mother’s health and cognitive abilities deteriorating while supporting his brother living with mental illness.

Add in Earl, the flirty neighbour, and Ben, an eager young graduate student, and you have the perfect breeding ground for unlikely attractions.

Vaches, the musical

L'UniThéâtre
Edmonton

Do you dream of seeing Casselman, the ice storm and a cow named Caramel in the same movie? So do we. But until we get the budget, here’s the musical. Very freely inspired by a true story, Vaches, the musical tells how Jean, a farmer, will try to save hundreds of cows from certain death despite the obstacles: his urban daughter, the money-hungry mayor, the soldiers who show up and the ice storm that is freezing the hearts of the inhabitants.

Both funny and touching, Vaches, the musical speaks (and sings!) with humour and sincerity about living together and the resilience of Franco-Ontarians in the face of adversity.

Every decade has certain trends that develop… the 60’s had its hippie counter culture, the 70’s had bell bottoms and disco… but no other decade had the sheer explosion of pop culture like the 80’s. And so much of this cavalcade of wild styles and crazy quirks was a direct reflection of the music of the time. The Billboard charts of the 1980’s featured the biggest variety of music styles and genres since the birth of rock and roll. There were the ladies of the pop charts like Madonna, Tina Turner with their big hair sprayed bangs… to the hard rock guy bands like Def Leppard and Bon Jovi with their… ahh… also big hair sprayed bangs.

So, DON’T STOP BELIEVIN’, and join us at Jubilations Dinner Theatre as we JOURNEY to the time when we were LIVIN’ ON A PRAYER, and we all had a TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE HEART.

Jubilations Dinner Theatre presents Journey to the 80’s!
