Country Legends is at St. Jacobs Country Playhouse starting next week

WATERLOO - The St. Jacobs Country Playhouse will present Country Legends, a theatrical salute to the out­standing musicians who helped put Nashville on the map.

 

The show runs July 28 through Aug. 21.

Following its sold-out run in 2009 at the Drayton Festival Theatre and the King’s Wharf Theatre in Penetanguishene, Country Legends is back, fus­ing elements of classic coun­try, gospel and bluegrass with com­edy and dance.

“Being a country music fan is not a prerequisite to enjoy this show,” said artistic director of Drayton Entertainment Alex Mustakas. “Early country mu­sic was early radio and every­one will recognize the songs and the memorable lyrics. Not to mention, the music is simply infectious.”

Conceived, written and dir­ected by Mustakas, Country Leg­ends is a tribute to the art­ists and the repertoire that ultimately defined country music.

Their personal influence is celebrated in the musical revue that features classic songs by Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Willie Nelson, Conway Twitty, Charley Pride, Merle Haggard, Kenny Rogers, Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, Tammy Wynette, and many more. 

Many Drayton Entertain­ment’s performers are reunited in the revue, including Keith Savage alongside Jayme Arm­strong, Karen Coughlin, Trevor Covelli, Liam Flanagan, Carla Giuliani, Paula MacNeil, Chad McNamara, Jack Nicholsen, Bobby Prochaska, Danny Willi­ams, and Heather E. Wil­son.

“Country music is more popular than ever,” said Mustakas. “This production gives recognition to those ex­tra­ordinary artists who pion­eered the Grand Ole Opry and who have made such an enormous impact on North American popular culture.”

Tickets may be purchased through the box office at 519-747-7788 or toll free at 1-888-449-4463. For more infor­mation visit www.stjacobs­coun­tryplayhouse.com.
