A Last-Minute Holiday Gift Idea!

‘Tis the season to be stressed out! Yes, Christmas is just days away and panic may have set in as you stare at your gift list and realise that you still have a number of names to tick off.

Gift certificates and show tickets may be your answer – and you can do this with a glass of wine in hand, in front of a Christmas movie!

Centrepointe Theatres (Nepean) and Shenkman Arts Centre (Orleans) have a number of shows coming up in the early part of 2018, you are sure to find something for those on your list.

The vocal powers of Ottawa’s opera goddess, Julie Nesrallah, will please any classical music fan; Tom Cochrane will be rocking out with Red Rider; and The Legendary Downchild Blues Band will have audiences dancing through the night.

The music continues with Canadian musicians Digging Root and Dione Taylor, and let’s not forget The Arrogant Worms.

The Gruffalo: Live on Stage, Al Simmons, and The Story of Babar are just a few of the shows set to entertain kids this year.

Either pick a show and purchase tickets for the loved ones in your life, or buy a gift certificate so they can choose a show that fits their interests.

Show tickets and gift certificates can be purchased through the theatre websites.
