Henri Canino practically ran away with this show. More on that later. From the ground up Diversion Entertainment's production of 'Next To Normal' is a piece of music theatre that excels on all levels …

Mike Blackmore, Dan Martin and Chris Molyneaux at The Cheeky Monkey for Sarnia's August First Friday Celebration

Fun and electricity are the first words that came to mind describing this. Spontaneity, energy and passion find their way into the wording pretty quickly too. What the mix of Mike Blackmore, Dan Martin and Chris Molyneaux added up to was a huge amount of fun, for everyone on both sides of the instrument …

Review of The Drift at The Cheeky Monkey for Sarnia's July 2014 First Friday Celebration added …

I heard the difference as soon as I walked in the door. The playing had a sense of assurance and the vocals were muffled slightly, but obviously, a lot stronger than before. Lead singer and guitarist Wes Beveridge made a quick adjustment to the volume and the difference was like night opposite day…

Sarnia's Artwalk 2014 at The Cheeky Monkey featuring The Indecisive and The Drift

The Cheeky Monkey's contribution to Sunday's part of Artwalk showcased veterans and youth. The Drift, consisting of veteran players Wes Beveridge on guitar and lead vocal, bassist Ron Webber and drummer Paul Eastman sounded deliberate, not tentative. There's a difference …

Review of Theatre Sarnia's production of 'The Sound of Music' added …

The person with the most daunting task was Tara Norman. She had to make people stop thinking about Julie Andrews and she did. The first bars of Maria's opening number seemed odd but she took full command of the part quickly …

Review of the Canadian Opera Company's Production of 'Roberto Devereux' added …

The collection of voices the Canadian Opera Company assembled for their production of Donizetti's 'Roberto Devereux' is exceptionally strong even by their standards. As the Duchess, 'Sara', Allyson MCHardy's singing was amazing from the onset of her first notes …

Review of Opera Atelier's Production of 'Persée' added …

Mireille Asselin creates an 'Androméde' that's virtuous, responsible almost to a fault, yet deeply conflicted. Her character is free of guile but obviously aware of the choices and acts accordingly.
