    MANAGER'S NOTES Spring is definitely in the air! (Avert your eyes. Dont look at that final snow). And, holy smokes, can you believe that the Rose Theatres 10th anniversary is over at the end of April? But dont worry, we are lining up some really great entertainment

    for you. For us, its the time of year when we are right in the thick of programming the 2016/2017 season, planning our subscriber night showcase and preparing a sensational summer season for you!

    Are you ready, Brampton? April is just going to be bananas!

    On Stage at the Rose Theatre:We saved a lot of the best for last. April is packed with family experiences, mystifying magical acts and show-stopping theatrical performances.

    Sharon and Bram are bringing a singalong concert for the entire family to the Rose Theatre Brampton on April 13! Regardless of your age, old favourites such as Shell Be Coming Round the Mountain, Five Little Monkeys and, of course, Skinnamarink are sure to warm your heart as you take a trip back in time.

    On April 28 at 7PM, the City of Brampton hosts its 9th annual Centre Stage Youth Concert and Awards Gala, at the Rose Theatre. This Arts and Culture initiative promotes local talent from K to Grade 12. Youth audition and ultimately have the chance to perform in front of friends and family on the Main Stage. Admission is free with a donation of a non-perishable food item.

    Concluding our season is the highly anticipated solo theatre show Trudeau Stories, April 28-30 in Studio Two. After affecting audiences and wowing critics across the country, Brooke Johnson is now ready to captivate Brampton. She takes us back to 1985, when she was a student at the National Theatre School in Montreal and developed a remarkable friendship with former Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau (1968-1979)

    Whats Happening in Arts and Culture:The Artists Marketplace returns to Garden Square and Mount Pleasant Village from June through October, as part of the farmers markets. Vendor applications will be accepted until April 30 and can be found at www.brampton.ca.

    Thank you to the many artists and arts organizations who attended our very first Creative Exchange on February 12. The turnout was fantastic and the creative energy was palpable. The atmosphere was free-flowing, relaxed a positive networking experience.

    This gathering was born out of a request to the City from the arts community, to host a regular gathering where the community could connect. Et voila, the Creative Exchange was born. Participants can connect on a broad range of interests and medias and inspire one another. City staff can provide updates on various initiatives and upcoming opportunities. The next Creative Exchange is on Wednesday, April 20 from 7 8 PM. Registration is required; please visit www.rosetheatre.ca for details.

    On behalf of everyone within the Arts and Culture team, as always, we thank you for your continued encouragement, support and participation. As Robin Williams once said, Spring is natures way of saying Lets party! We look forward to seeing you party very soon at one of the Citys many arts and culture activities!
