ABRA Cadabra have had a great run of shows over the past several weeks! They had a fun experience performing at the Massey Theatre in New Westminster on August 24th and so appreciated the audience's warm reception. ABRA Cadabra also enjoyed performing 2 shows at the PNE on August 27th & 28th. Thanks to everyone who came out for the fun! See photos below (courtesy of AndreasBernauer.com). ABRA Cadabra also enjoyed performances at the Kelowna Community Theatre on Sept. 8th, The Coast Capital Theatre in White Rock on Sept. 14th, The Act Theatre in Maple Ridge on September 27th and a fun show for the Grieg Star Shipping company from Norway, at Seasons in the Park on October 5th!
The Piano Man cast received a warm reception from the people of McBride, BC when they performed at the Roundhouse Theatre on September 7th. The next day, they travelled to Kelowna to perform a double-bill with ABRA Cadabra at The Kelowna Community Theatre! One of many highlights of the evening was when Ryan (the star of the Piano Man) dedicated 'Your Song' to his Grandparents who were at the show, and just celebrated their 65th Anniversary!
We always love going to Kelowna and the entire cast was buzzing for hours after the show from the great energy in the theatre that night! So much so, that after the show, the cast & crew ended up jamming and hanging out at the hotel until about 4 am! (pictured bottom right) Another awesome road trip that we won't soon forget!

'Sway' and 'The Retro Diva's' were honoured to be a part of the Michael Cuccione Fundraising Gala at the Italian Cultural Centre on September 29th. It was a star-studded event, with lots of VIPs in attendance and hosted by Pamela Martin. Adam Lucas, the star of 'Sway' (pictured below) brought the house down with his incredible performance. There were a couple of very heart-warming moments in the show. First when he dedicated 'Home' to his parents, who were visiting from Australia and who were going home the next day; And there wasn't a dry eye in the place when Adam dedicated 'In the Arms of an Angel' to the Cuccione family. Little did Adam know that this was the song performed at Michael Cuccione's funeral. It was an extremley touching and emotional moment.
Later in the evening, the Retro Divas took to the stage and had everyone on their feet dancing to the hits of the Supremes, Donna Summer, Blondie, Pat Benatar, Madonna, Lady Gaga & more! A huge thank-you to the Cuccione family for having us, and to our amazing cast and crew who worked extra hard to make this a very successful and special night!
