Graham Nash, Roseanne Barr and Tom Cochrane add to the mix at Centrepointe in 2017-18

Centrepointe Theatre is offering a real mix for all ages in their upcoming season of entertainment.

For those who love rock and roll there will be appearances by Graham Nash, of the legendary supergroup Crosby, Stills and Nash. Before that in the early to mid-60s he was a centrepiece in the British pop invasion band The Hollies. Life still is a highway for Tom Cochrane who  is bringing his band Red Rider along with him.

Graham Nash will appear Oct. 2.

If you like country sounds, country fans can swing to the sounds of Gord Bamford, the Australian-Canadian star who is touring on the strength of his JUNO-nominated album Tin Roof.

There’s even a bit of opera for those so inclined with a performance by CBC radio personality and Ottawa’s own soprano Julie Nesrallah, bass-baritone Gary Relyea and tenor Richard Margison.

Roseanne Barr will be in town in April, 2018.

For the children there are performances of the Gruffalo Live on Stage based on the children’s book The Gruffalo and an appearance by children’s entertainer Al Simmons.

Tom Cochrane will be playing in March 2018.

For the adults, comedian Roseanne Barr will be riding a wave of attention with the relaunch of her eponymous TV series when she drops into Centrepointe. More comedy will be evidence with the return of CBC radio program The Debaters, and the Just for Laughs Roadshow.

Centrepointe is also offering a studio series which will feature the Canto Sentimento String Quartet, Ottawa’s Duelling Pianos, the Grey Jazz Big Band and children’s entertainer Yaki.
