The Côte Saint Luc Dramatic Society is performing some of its best musical numbers from November 4 to November 8 as it launches its fifth season with the musical revue Broadway is Back.
Tickets are $20 and are on sale at the Aquatic and Community Centre, Parks and Recreation office and City Hall.
“You can experience the magic of Broadway in your own backyard as some of our greatest performers and favourite numbers return,” said Councillor Mitchell Brownstein, who is producing the show. “Actors Ben Warner, Sam Stein, Brandon Schwartz, Amber Jonas and many more will be back. This will be a show-stopping, toe-tapping musical extravaganza from start to finish hosted by Ryan Kligman. Fifty performers will return to the Côte Saint-Luc Dramatic Society stage to bring the revue to life as we celebrate 9 shows in 4 years, and look forward to our incredible 5th season!”

In January 2016, The Dramatic Society will  be remounting its METAs nominated production of Hairspray for a limited six show run in Montreal’s historic old port at The Centaur.
Tickets will be available for purchase at centaurtheatre.com as of November. Don’t miss this spectacular production the second time around
The Segal Centre and Dora Wasserman Yiddish Theatre in association with the Côte Saint-Luc Dramatic Society will be mounting The Producers, a new Mel Brooks’ Musical, in Yiddish in June and July of 2016.
“We are so proud to be working with The Segal Centre and The Dora Wasserman Yiddish Theatre on what we are sure is going to be a stellar smash hit,” Councillor Brownstein said.
The Dramatic Society will launch its second annual Senior Summerworks Project in the summer of 2016. Following the overwhelming success of the first project in the summer of 2015, GrAnnie, the Dramatic Society will continue with a brand new show for next summer.
“The goal of our Senior Summerworks Project is to pair our senior members with our emerging artists to create a parody musical that addresses issues pertinent to the senior population of Côte Saint-Luc and beyond,” Councillor Brownstein said.
Finally, the Dramatic Society will wrap up 2016 with a Halloween production of the deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical, Little Shop Of Horrors. This hilarious show has devoured the hearts of theatre goers for over 30 years. Howard Ashman and Alan Menken (Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Beauty And The Beast, and Aladdin) are the creative geniuses behind what has become one of the most popular shows in the world, which will now play in the Harold Greenspon Auditorium next fall.
