Catch the Latest at Stagewest Theatre Restaurants!

Enjoy an evening out by taking in the fantastic food and performances at Stagewest Theatre Restaurants; both in Missisauga ON and Calgary AB.

Recent shows in Mississauga included The Producers; the big Broadway musical based on Mel Brooks' classic clult comedy film that sets the standard for modern, outrageous, in-your-face humor. It is a truly “boffo” hit, winning a record twelve Tony® Awards and wowing capacity crowds night after night.

At Stagewest Theatre in Calgary, enjoy the current production of Married Alive until November 1; a riotous new musical comedy about matrimonial mayhem! Book/lyrics by Sean Grennan. Music by Leah Okimoto. Starring Joyce DeWitt from Three's Company, this wacky new musical revue looks at two marriages; newlyweds and the not-so-newlywed couples. From new babies to empty nests, from job stress to domestic bliss; Married Alive is a funny, yet affectionate look at married life. Follow these couples as they experience life from Niagara to Viagra!

Currently in Mississauga, catch Viagara Falls - Playing Sep 17th, 09 - Nov 22nd, 09. This "laugh out loud" comedy is a rare treat! The story involves two widowers who are long time friends, a buxom call girl, and the wonders of a little blue pill! It all takes place in the apartment of Charley on his 77th birthday. The show examines the importance of friendships, the realization that emotions don't diminish with age and the idea that feeling wanted can be the difference between living and just existing.
Next in Calgary, catch British Invasion! - from November 5, 2009 – January 24, 2010; featuring former lead-singer of The Guess Who, Terry Hatty; Season 3 Canadian Idol Winner, Melissa O'Neil; and local favourite Gerrad Everard.

AIDS Walk - A First Hand Look into the Walk

For those new to the Walk, or long-time supporters, check out this article on a dedicated Walker and what participating means to him.

Go to The AWord, AIDS Calgary's official Blog to read the interview:

2009 AIDS Walk For Life

Canada’s most important HIV/AIDS fundraising and awareness event is the annual Scotiabank AIDS Walk for Life. During the national event, cities and communities from across the country will host Walks to raise funds for local services and programming and to increase awareness about HIV/AIDS.

To date, more than half a million Canadians have participated in the Scotiabank AIDS Walk for Life from coast to coast to coast. Together, these Canadians have raised close to $28 million to support programs and services for people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS in their communities.
HIV/AIDS affects us all. There is no cure and no vaccine. We Walk for those who are no longer with us. We Walk to support those living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. We Walk to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS in our own communities. We all have our reasons. We hope that one day we won’t need to Walk any longer. Until then, the Walk will do us good.
Whatever your reason, join the fight against HIV/AIDS in your community and Walk. When you Walk and collect pledges for the Scotiabank AIDS Walk for Life, you are making a difference in the lives of those living with and affected by HIV/AIDS in your community.

We encourage you to Walk, form a team, fundraise, donate, volunteer, or all of the above! And remember, all Scotiabank AIDS Walk for Life proceeds support direct services for people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS in your community!
The Scotiabank AIDS Walk for Life will take place across Canada from September 12—20, 2009. To support the Scotiabank AIDS Walk for Life in your community, please go to
