It’s a delightful comedy about love, family, and marriage from Canada’s most-produced playwright Norm Foster (Bedtime Stories, Looking, Love List, Mending Fences, etc.).

Coronation St. Legend William Roache MBE Celebrating 57 years of ‘The Ken Barlow Effect’

Opt-William-Roache-600x600

Visiting Canada starting in May 2018.
An in-depth interview with post show meet & greet.
Show title: Coronation St. Legend William Roache MBE, ‘The Ken Barlow Effect’
Produced by Stroll Promotions Ltd.

To fans of the world’s longest-running television drama, William Roache MBE simply is Coronation Street. Roache has played Ken Barlow for more than 57 years, ever since the first episode of Corrie premiered Dec. 9, 1960.

His portrayal of the often-conflicted patriarch of the troubled Barlow clan—a frustrated intellectual with a lifelong way with women—has earned accolades and numerous awards. It’s made Roache one of Britain’s most-beloved actors, a TV titan whose popularity is impossible to overstate among the loyal followers of the kitchen-sink drama seen in dozens of countries and airing weeknights and Sunday mornings in Canada on CBC.

This intimate one-on-one onstage interview allows William Roache to give fans a rare glimpse into his personal life. Audiences will be enthralled as he shares stories about his experiences on the famous set, the plotlines and the actors he has worked with over five decades, many of whom are equally adored by loyal audiences.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for an audience with true Coronation Street royalty and no fan will want to miss it.

In addition to show tickets, William will meet & greet a very limited number of VIP fans whose tickets will wrap the best seats in the house, the full show and a post-show M&G with William.

Direct from the Las Vegas Stage
Jay White is America’s Diamond
A musical tribute to the incomparable Neil Diamond

Opt-600x600-JayWhite

For over 25 years, Jay White has continued to stretch his singing and acting talents, while reflecting the stage persona of one of the world’s best loved musical icons. Validation came from Hollywood Director Ron Howard, who in 2008 cast Jay to play Neil Diamond in the Academy Award nominated film “Frost/Nixon”. In 2002, Jay began his 8 years as a Las Vegas showroom headliner at the Riviera, sparking national interest and recognition. Leeza Gibbons of “Entertainment Tonight” wrote: “He’s uncanny and truly amazing!” While Ron Howard said, “Your portrayal of Neil Diamond was excellent.”

In 1996 and again in 2002, White met Diamond before his Vegas MGM appearances, where Neil told Jay to “keep up the good work” and autographed a photo of the two signing, “Jay, keep singing, so I can stay home and relax, your friend in music.”

From passionate crowds rushing the stage at corporate events, to 1500 enthusiastic alumni at Princeton University, to the cheers of some 18,000 screaming fans in several Salt Lake City performances, White is grateful that his years of hard work and dedication are still so convincing and so appreciated.
