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.”
