Cool upcoming Events in Our Community

I sometimes forget how active a community we are lucky to live in! There always seems to be something going on, and things to do. So here are a few cool upcoming events:

The Arrogant Worms will be play at the Classic Theatre this Friday October 2nd, 2009! The show starts at 8:00pm and tickets are $30 Advance $35 door, plus you can now order your tickets online!!

If you haven't seen these guys before you need to come out to the Classic and catch their show!

Three quarters of a quarter of a century ago, something magnificent happened in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sensing a desperate public need for musical comedy, The Arrogant Worms was formed. The Arrogant Worms began as a comedy troupe performing songs and sketches on the campus radio station in 1991. As the live show developed, the songs delighted the audience. The sketches - not so much.It began as a hobby, making fun of a big dumb world. Luckily, the world is still dumb and The Arrogant Worms (Mike McCormick, Chris Patterson and Trevor Strong) still have plenty to sing about. The shows are fast, furious and family friendly. The wit is quick, the satire is biting and the musicianship is second to none. Their appeal has earned them fans from kids to parents to grandparents to Princess Leia.
