You'll Get Used To It! ... The War Show at St. Jacobs Country Playhouse In celebration of the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, the joys and sorrows of war are explored in this unforgettable nostalgic musical that follows the journey of six Canadian infantrymen. With a mixture of side-splitting comedy and heart-wrenching tragedy, the essence of World War II is captured through the eyes of Canadian soldiers themselves as they experience everything from training and the anguish of leaving loved ones, to the anticipation of actually going to fight the enemy, the fear and danger of battle, and the sorrow of losing comrades. This moving theatrical production brings history alive, featuring popular music from the 1930s and 1940s including "The White Cliffs of Dover," "We'll Meet Again," "A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square," "I'll Be Seeing You," and many more hits of the era. So pack up your troubles in your old kit bag and get ‘in the mood’ for an unforgettable theatre experience in tribute to our cherished veterans. Recommended for ages 10 and up.

Art at St. Jacobs Country Playhouse What is art? Three Friends. One white canvas. Many opinions. Winner of countless awards and touted as one of the most successful plays ever on Broadway and London’s West End, this cleverly crafted dramedy asks the pivotal question – what is art? When Serge, who fancies himself as an art collector, buys an expensive painting, his friends Marc and Yvan react strongly to the extravagant purchase. The tension mounts, and a fierce debate ensues. As the conversation moves from the theoretical to the personal, the three friends are forced to ask questions not only about the nature of art, but also about the nature of friendship. This inventive play about the value of art and the fickleness of friendship is a theatrical masterpiece. Don't miss it. Recommended for ages 13 and up.
