Serena Ryder & Reuben and the Dark

We’re thrilled to welcome Serena back to the Stockey Stage, just in time for Christmas. Call it an early Christmas present, from us to you.

Serena Ryder does what she does naturally and effortlessly, and has done what she does naturally and effortlessly since she was a young girl. This girl was performing by the age of eight, cut her first record at 16 and could boast of being a major-label artist with a gold-selling album, 2006’s If Your Memory Serves You Well and a gold-selling single, the lingeringly knee-weakening Weak in the Knees, all before she’d even turned 25.

Since then, Serena has sold well over a million singles, won six Juno Awards and has had her songs placed in over 50 TV shows and commercials, including Grey’s AnatomyVEEP and Suits. Her single Stompa is a quadruple platinum hit in Canada, and the follow up release, What I Wouldn’t Do, went platinum. Stompa also hit No. 1 at AAA radio in the U.S. for eight weeks (the most weeks at No. 1 since Adele).

This spring she released her latest album, Utopia, and is riding high on the current single Electric Love.

Special guests Reuben and the Dark will be opening for Serena!


Calgary's Reuben and the Dark is a collection of five multi-instrumentalists and vocalists led by Reuben Bullock. The group makes chilling, emotive folk and soul driven by dark, introspective lyrics that explore the duality of misery and joy. 

Boasting a rare chemistry between all members across western Canada, Reuben and the Dark has emerged organically from Canada's stellar independent scene on the strength of often anthemic compositions that translate the language of emotion into song with haunting clarity. 

Their debut album is produced by the UK's Chris Hayden (Florence & the Machine) and Canada's Stephen Kozmeniuk (Madonna, Nicki Minaj, and The Game feat Kanye West) and is being mixed by Jim Abbiss (Arctic Monkeys, Adele).

Film At The Stockey: Breathe

For his directorial debut, Andy Serkis brings to life the inspiring true love story between Robin and Diana Cavendish (Andrew Garfield, Claire Foy), an adventurous couple who refuse to give up in the face of a devastating disease. When Robin is struck down by polio at the age of 28, he is confined to a hospital bed and given only a few months to live. With the help of Diana's twin brothers (Tom Hollander) and the groundbreaking ideas of inventor Teddy Hall (Hugh Bonneville), Robin and Diana dare to escape the hospital ward to seek out a full and passionate life together - raising their young son, traveling and devoting their lives to helping other polio patients. Written by two-time Academy Award nominated writer William Nicholson, and shot by three-time Academy Award winner Robert Richardson, BREATHE is a heartwarming celebration of love and human possibility.

About the Artist Instructor

After a long hiatus from high school art, Andrea has begun to include art in her creative expression.  Like her mother, Fran Rutke, Andrea likes to try new things and so bounces from medium to medium.  She has yet to decide which is her favourite.  In all her work, she attempts to focus on beauty, be it of colour or any of the Creator’s work.  She hopes to grow to channel art from spirit.  Meanwhile, she studies through workshops and happy little accidents.

Classic Albums Live: Eagles Greatest Hits

The next in our Classic Albums live series is an album with so many hits jam-packed into it you'll wonder how they squeezed them all into vinyl. 

If you've been to a CAL event, you know that it is an eerily Note for Note, Cut for Cut live rendition of the album. 

If you haven't, then you really need to. In our opinion, anyway.

Join us for this, one of the greatest collections of great hits every assembled. Bring the kids too: they may just be surprised at how great the music was when we were their age. 

This goes on sale to Members Only Tuesday August 29 at 10 am, and to the General Public on September 5

Famous People Players

Famous People Players

Famous PEOPLE Players - Glow in the dark Dream Theatre.  From Broadway, to Radio City Music Hall and around the World – FPP is Where Special Happens!”

There are two showtimes for the Famous People Players:
2:00pm (60 minutes length) and 7:00 pm (90 minutes length)

The black light performance of Famous PEOPLE Players was discovered by Liberacé, and they were his opening act in Las Vegas for 10 years. Their production of the Sorcerer’s Apprentice was part of the re-opening of Radio City Music Hall, and their success continued with two runs on Broadway and performances in China, Korea and Singapore, and throughout the United States. Their Dine & Dream Theatre in Toronto was generously sponsored by actor Paul Newman through sales of Newman’s Own products sold in Canada. He remained a very devoted supporter and honorary director the board.

They were the first to perform at the Peace Memorial in Hiroshima during their 10 year tour of Japan. They have made television appearances on A&E Breakfast for the Arts and Bravo!, and gave a televised performance for Ronald Regan at the Shamrock Summit. Other appearances were on television series’ 7th Heaven, Red Skelton’s Funny Faces, and their Emmy-award winning CBS Movie of the Week “Special People”, based on the founding of the company.

Diane Dupuy, the company founder, is an outstanding motivational speaker who spoke along-side former Vice President Al Gore at the Alliance for a New Humanity. With 5 honorary degrees, she was awarded the Order of Canada and the Queen’s Jubilee medal for her work in Theatre and her dedication to the integration of PEOPLE with disABILITIES.

Iridescent spectacle that drenches the senses in light and sound. It is something for the kids and also for grown-ups. The magic of the theatre, the magic of diversion, the magic that compels one to say ‘That’s Entertainment’.” -New York Times

"Famous PEOPLE Players are rather more than a bunch of enthusiastic theatrical artists living out a precious dream in a manner that's startlingly unique." – Toronto Star
