Mirth and merriment will be on order in Barrie from Thursday, Sept. 12 to Saturday, Oct. 1 as Talk is Free Theatre (TIFT) presents the fourth annual Barrie International Comedy festival.
The festival kicks off on Sept. 12 with the presentation of The Music Man, in which “Barrie becomes River City, Iowa in this innovative site-specific staging of the beloved musical.
“The audience will travel throughout the city of Barrie to witness the story of a con man, Harold Hill, unfold with downtown locations, and the real train, serving as the ‘set’ of the production. One of the largest productions of a musical ever, this rendition will have a cast of 125 actors.”
Tickets are $40.80.
Colin Mochrie and Debra McGrath get together for a one-couple show, Thursday, Sept. 27 at the Georgian Theatre.
They “present their acclaimed one-couple show based on their 27 years of marriage, 60 years of performing around the world and one year on Instagram. Combining heart-warming and hilarious stories from their life, improv with the audience and surprise video guests, Colin and Deb will entertain you with their charm, wit and promise of cash prizes.”
Tickets are $57.50 for rows AA-k, while pods are $41.68.
Buddywasisname and the Other Fellers return to Barrie for a show at the Georgian Theatre, Friday, Sept. 30.
“There are few acts to ever have succeeded in the way they have, making and growing an audience continually since they began in 1983. Theirs is an entirely original presentation, sponsored by … themselves. No government subsidies here. Rock on.
Tickets are $57.50 for rows AA-k, while pods are $41.68.
