    From Niagara This Week:

    In the 25 years since Oh Canada Eh? has been offering dinner theatre patrons homegrown songs celebrating the Great White North, Eric Hitchcock has had a front seat through a good deal of them.

    Now general manager of the Niagara Falls-based theatre, Hitchcock was there for the first show on May 17, 1994 — though just as a member of the audience. With a friend in the show, which features performers singing songs either created or made famous by Canadians, Hitchcock wanted to show his support. By the second performance, however, he was put to work, first at the bar of the venue, then located near Clifton Hill and now on Lundy’s Lane, and eventually all manner of duties.

    “Whatever they needed,” he said, “wherever they needed help.”

    From Niagara This Week:

    In the words of director Lee Siegel, he’s taken some sterling silver and gave it some polish.

    Siegel was describing some changes that were being made to the venerable Oh Canada, Eh? Dinner Show, which is about to embark on its 20th season.

    “The iconic characters will still be there — Klondike Kitty, the Mountie, the Hockey Player,” Siegel said. “I talked to Jim and Anne (Cooper and Robinson, the team who run the theatre Cooper helped found) and they said we can’t change the iconic pieces.”

    What has been done, is new music has been added, including a new rock section that includes music from the likes of Bachman-Turner Overdrive and Avril Lavigne.
