Give the gift of live theatre this Christmas. The Halton Museum Foundation is kicking off its 2007 fundraising campaign on Saturday, January 20 at Georgetown's John Elliott Theatre with a special presentation of James Gordon's critically acclaimed musical Hardscrabble Road. This gritty, thought-provoking tale takes the audience on a journey to the back streets of a Canadian inner city where a group of homeless people sings of their plight. Gordon's most ambitious work to date with 24 all-new songs, this groundbreaking musical uses sharp satire, humour and a wide range of music styles to convey the important and timely message of how our current global situation can have a personal impact on each and everyone of us. Gordon shares the lead vocals with a "who's who" of the area's music scene, including Ken Browne, Nonie Crete, Sandy Horne, Amy Nodwell and Ryan Schneider. These talented performers are backed-up by principal instrumentalists Lois Cherry, Marion Linton, Even Gordon and Randall Coryell. In the spirit of this presentation, the Halton Museum Foundation will be accepting donations of non-perishable food items and/or monetary donations in support of the Georgetown Bread Basket food bank. Tickets for this event are adults $23 and youth/seniors $20. The Halton Museum Foundation returns to The John Elliott Theatre with internationally recognized illusionist Ted Outerbridge and his spell-binding presentation, Magical Moments in Time on Sunday, March 11 at 2 p.m. Tickets for Hardscrabble Road and Magical Moments in Time are available now at the John Elliott Theatre Box Office, 905-877-3700
