    It’s time to laugh with Ron James a Shantero Production coming to you at the FirstOntario Arts Centre.  Tickets for this event are only available until December 15th, but please use the waitlist as I can always try and get more.  The cost is $68.50/member and tickets are non-refundable as they will be purchased well in advance of the show.

    From the FirstOntario Arts Centre Website:

    Canada's stand-out amongst 'stand-ups', award-winning comedian RON JAMES has been selling out theatres for over 20 years with his marathon, side-splitting performances. Marshalling a comedian's eye for satire and a writer's ear for language, Ron takes his audience on a breath-taking, non-stop roller coaster ride, cutting a wide swath through contemporary culture with a razor-sharp wit, uncompromising standard and unique, poetically honed delivery.

    Along with five seasons starring in his own series, "The Ron James Show", his record breaking nine critically acclaimed one-hour comedy specials fast became a New Year's Eve viewing tradition for millions of Canadians. Not to be sidelined by the pandemic, he capitalized on lockdown after lockdown and wrote his first book, 'All Over the Map: Rambles and Ruminations from the Canadian Road'', released by publishing giant Penguin-Random House, September 28th. With the light looking brighter every day at the end of the tunnel, Canada''s #1 road warrior is back where he belongs: live onstage delivering laughs face to face to audiences sitting shoulder to shoulder, coast to coast clear cross the Big Wide Open!

    Check out some of his video clips at http://www.ronjames.ca/video/

    Our sommelier, Oliver Woodburn, is going to take us on a journey from Old World versus New Comparison and Discovery Wine Tasting. 

    This promise to be a  fun and informative evening designed to delight your taste buds by experiencing wines made from the same grape variety yet grown and styled in two completely different countries. 

    Discover how climate, soil and winemaking philosophy affect the tastes we enjoy in the glass.  In addition, our focus will be on 6 different wines that are both 'hidden values' and everyday favourites of our guest presenter.  Together we'll enjoy tasting 2 red wines and 4 whites; perfect to add to your repertoire for the summer of 2023 and beyond.

    This wine tasting is going to be held at Art on Main in the party room located on the 7th floor.  Thank you Theresa Spano for arranging!  The cost for this event is $42/member and is limited to 26 members.

    You don’t need to belong to the wine tasting club to join us for the event.  Come and enjoy a very special evening from the wine to the charcuterie board to the chocolate.  Guaranteed to be a elegant evening. 

    Weather permitting, we will be able to enjoy the outdoor terrace and fireplace.

    CAUTION:  For those of you that belong to a PROBUS wine tasting group, please note that this wine tasting does not include dessert/coffee/tea. So deal with it!

    Join us for a smart, big-hearted musical comedy that celebrates the love that unites us all.

    Four narcissistic Broadway stars are in desperate need of a new stage. So when they hear that trouble is brewing around a small-town prom, they know it’s time to put a spotlight on the issue – and themselves. The town’s parents want to keep the high school dance on the straight and narrow, but when one student just wants to bring her girlfriend to prom, the entire town has a date with destiny. 

    Winner of the Drama Desk Award for Best Musical, and created by the geniuses behind The Book of MormonThe Drowsy Chaperone, and Mean GirlsThe Prom expertly captures all the humor and heart of a classic musical comedy with a message that resonates with audiences now more than ever.

    Don’t miss the show that Variety raves “…is so full of happiness that you think your heart is about to burst!”

    Optional lunch will be planned for pre-show enjoyment. Please use Wild Apricot to register your interest in both show and lunch or show only.

    Planning on going?  Grab a friend or two to carpool with.  Enjoy the ride!
