The Living Arts Centre’s 2017-18 season has arrived, with a more diverse range of performances than ever before! Like any 20 year old, the LAC is moving into a new stage of life after garnering some real world experience. Our aspiration to be the centre for global engagement in Arts, Culture & Entertainment in Mississauga is as strong as our goal to showcase and inspire artistic and creative expression and appreciation.
In recognition of the LAC’s 20th Anniversary and Canada’s 150th, our new season features outstanding, world-renowned Canadian artists, music legend Gordon Lightfoot on November 10, Academy Award, JUNO and Golden Globe winner Buffy Sainte-Marie on November 16. Finally, the LAC caps off celebrations on December 9th with the jazz event of the year: a tribute night to the musical genius of Oscar Peterson and his esteemed confrere, Oliver Jones.
To kick off our all-new season, Whose Live Anyway? is back by popular demand on September 16! Join Ryan Stiles from ‘Two and a Half Men’, Greg Proops, Jeff Davis and special guest star Joel Murray from ‘Mad Men’ and ‘Dharma & Greg’ for an evening of hilarious improvised comedy and song! Take a trip down memory lane with the legendary Robbie Lane & The Disciples and Mississauga’s very own Dreamboats in A Looking Back Retro Music Concert on September 30. Prepare yourselves for a high energy, nostalgic show will have you dancing and singing the night away!
In association with ARRA Arts Inc., the LAC presents Broken Images on October 1, 2017. Renowned Indian actress Shabana Azmi stars in this thrilling stage presentation, playing the role of two characters that morph into one another in this chilling play. Next in our lineup is Mystic India: The World Tour on October 19 & 20. Travel on a journey through the states of India and the history of Bollywood film in this extravagant, explosive dance spectacular that just cannot be missed! If you’re in the mood for exciting live concerts, we have just the thing for you – an unforgettable night of career-spanning hits from the 50s and 60s with Orbison & The Everly Bros. Reimagined on October 27.
