• Lube. What is it good for?

    As of yesterday, my first- and fourth-graders can tell you. And no, I don't mean "lube and filter" lube. I mean, LUBE lube. Yes. Sexy sex lube. How did this all come about? Well, sit back and lemme tell you about yesterday. It started innocently enough, with a run-of-the-mill drive to school. ...

  • It’s Monster Jam time again!

    My son lives for Monster Jam. We've gone every year since he's been old enough (sometimes to both the Toronto and London stops). This will be our 4th Rogers Centre Monster Jam - and probably our 7th show. Somewhere along there I got hooked up with Feld Entertainment and we ...

  • Aladdin – A wondrous place!

    Disney's newest musical, Aladdin, will take you wonder by wonder, including, of course, a magic carpet ride. Toronto is being delightfully treated to the world premiere, pre-Broadway engagement of this wonderful new musical by Disney. If you'd had the good fortune to see other Disney musicals, such as Beauty and the ...

  • Les Misérables is a MUST see!

    We were invited by Mirvish Productions to see Les Misérables on its opening night on Wednesday, October 9. We already had tickets to see it later in the month, but  jumped at the chance to see the show as soon as we could. We made our way to Toronto early, ...

This weekend we headed to Drayton to see Oliver! My partner and I, along with my 8-year-old daughter and 6-year-old son, saw an evening performance. This performance started at 7:3o (instead of the usual 8pm) as do most family shows. 7:30 is my kids' bedtime. I was pretty sure my ...

Spamalot and Laughalot

Posted by jackiyo 0 Comment

We thoroughly enjoyed last night's performance of Monty Python's Spamalot. In Drayon Festival's words: A flying cow, a killer rabbit, cross-dressing cheerleaders and flatulent knights are just some of the absurdities in the Tony-award winning musical on stage now at the St. Jacobs Country Playhouse through August 3rd. Monty Python’s Spamalot ...

We are so lucky to have a theatre company such as Drayton Entertainment surrounding us here in Waterloo Region. Whether it's right here in Cambridge or St. Jacobs, or a short jaunt to Drayton, or even Grand Bend, there is great theatre at our doorstep all summer long - and ...

Four of us headed to Drayton to see Tuesdays with Morrie. The four of us consisted of two couples. Each of the couples had one person who had read the book and one who hadn't. My guy had read the book when he was in his teens, and my friend ...

Moving on

Posted by jackiyo 8 Comments

The kids have been adjusting. They're settling into their new life with mostly Mommy, they're both doing well in school. They seem pretty happy most of the time. I haven't heard "I wish you and Daddy were still married" for at least a month or two. They're starting to get ...

I was thinking the other day as I sat in church (yes, I went to church for the first time in probably two decades where it wasn't for a wedding or funeral). My mind wandered to all the amazing theatre we have within about an hour's drive of Kitchener-Waterloo. And ...
