The Drayton Entertainment Production of Disney's Newsies Stop the presses! Disney’s Tony Award®-winning Broadway musical phenomenon is ready to give audiences something to believe in. They sold the newspapers … until they made the headlines. Based on the beloved 1992 Disney movie inspired by a true story, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, the charismatic leader of a band of teenaged newsboys in New York City at the turn-of-the century. When Joseph Pulitzer and the titans of publishing raise distribution prices, Jack rallies the “newsies” from across the city to rise up and strike against the unfair conditions. With the help of smart and savvy reporter Katherine Plumber, all of New York City soon recognizes the power of young people. Packed with spectacular dancing and a sensational score by Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid) including the hit songs “Carrying the Banner,” “Seize the Day,” and “Santa Fe,” Newsies is an uplifting Broadway blockbuster with a timeless message that inspires everyone to fight for what's right and seize the day. Recommended for ages 10 and up.

PipeDown! provides an accessible venue for emerging artists to perform indie and/or rock music to audiences with similar tastes.
Sages (Hamilton):
SAGES, from Hamilton, Ontario, conjures a sensually hypnotic-spiritual display, blending trippy ambiances, hip-hop rhythms, and emotional vocals creating their own style of “emo-electronic.”
Conductor (Guelph):
Conductor is the electronic songwriting project of Guelph Canada's Matthew Davey, and creates loop-based rhythms made using drum machines, sample machines, step sequencers, synthesizers and keyboards, navigated simultaneously as a futurist one-man band, and accented by effect-drenched vocals.
Habit (Guelph):
Habit is a four-piece rock group from Guelph, ON. Their brand of post-punk deals in abrupt dynamic shifts, alternating between spare, wiry guitar lines and expressionist splatters of noise. Their songs grapple with the drudgerous monotony and everyday violence of adult life, and their live performances are known for an austere sense of dread punctuated by moments of cacophonous catharsis.

Al Qantara Forward - Mel Mrabet´s new World Fusion collaboration project

An Andalusian-Canadian Jazz World Fusion musician M El Mrabet, virtuoso on the Oud (Fretless Andalusian Lute) intermingles with Ravi Naimpally, Tabla player extraordinaire, an active member of the Canadian world music scene for nearly 20 years, a vital part of Toronto’s large South Asian community performing traditional music from India, while participating in many cross-cultural exchanges, joined along by master musicians Majd Sekkar (clarinet player originally from Syria).

The fretless Lute player, stringed Middle Eastern instrument pairs up with the Tabla and Clarinet to create a unique original sound drawn from Andalusian, Mideast, Flamenco roots, and other music influences.

It is a long-anticipated collaboration, which aims for a genuine musical experience, and where modals meet modes.

In spite of their dissimilar origins, these instruments complement each other, transcend music boundaries with singular sonorities intertwined in a way of dialogue to give birth to an outright true sound. The magic lies more in how the musicians respond to one another on stage than in a change of one’s style.
