Live performance has a way of making people shine. 

And we don't just mean the performers - a live performance will light up its audience too.

Experience live performances with YMCA Arts! The 2024/2025 Season will provide everyone of all ages with performances that are accessible, affordable, and fun, without the hassle of a drive downtown.

Join us at the BMO Theatre in Shane Homes YMCA at Rocky Ridge and the Evan Hazell Theatre at Brookfield Residential YMCA at Seton for all our 2024/2025 performances.

One Man Star Wars Trilogy

This October, Canadian actor and uber geek, Charles Ross, brings his solo madcap creation One-Man Star Wars Trilogy to the YMCA stages in this mind-bending whirlwind of a show.

If your kid’s name is Chewbacca, this show is a no-brainer. If not, get your nerd on and experience the global sensation loved by audiences from London’s West End, Off-Broadway, Dubai, the Sydney Opera House, Lucasfilm, and Charlie’s mom. The Force is strong with this one.

Nutcracker (in a Nutshell)

Helping young people enjoy the magic of live theatre in a fuss-friendly performance, BachTots: Performing Arts for Babies, Toddlers, and Young Children returns to the YMCA with their fun and engaging tale of Nutcracker (in a Nutshell) this December!

Black Ballerina

Syreeta Hector's Black Ballerina focuses on the dualities within one's identity, along with her own blackness and indigeneity in relationship to classical ballet. 

After gaining recognition at the SummerWorks Festival in 2019 and winning the Stratford Festival Lab Award for Research and Creation, Black Ballerina will hit the YMCA stages while on its international tour. Co-presented by Springboard Performance. 

LiLuune by Jamie Konchak

The Festival of Animated Objects presents Jamie Konchak's LiLuune, a new, beautiful sea-side puppet tale for all ages. LiLuune explores themes of living along with nature, control and anxiety, embracing challenges, courage, moving beyond failure and inviting personal growth. 

Buddy Holly Tribute

Buddy Holly Tribute is a dynamite two-act cabaret style show by Zachary Stevenson, featuring such hits as “That’ll Be the Day”, “Peggy Sue”, “Oh Boy and “Rave On”. Stevenson presents Buddy Holly so perfectly that we will seem to be watching a genuine replica of the nerdy, and hip young Texan here at the YMCA May 2025!
