Flato Markham Theatre is one of Canada’s premier theatre houses serving the GTA and Markham residents. It is intimate, acoustic and easy to get in and out of. Their major fundraiser of the year is the annual Discovery Gala, which supports over 300 live performances each year and a performance calendar that showcases the cultural diversity of the community.
This year guests were treated to a spectacular performance by the iconic Canadian band Blue Rodeo. Members Jim Cuddy, Greg Keelor, Bazil Donovan, Glenn Mitchem, Michael Boguski and Colin Cripps generously supported the event with two sets of hits.
Blue Rodeo is a member of the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, has received the Governor General’s Performing Arts Award and sold over four million records.
The Flato Markham Theatre presents a range of performing arts through live theatre, concerts, comedy shows and family entertainment. They honour respected international artists and Canadian talent in performances offered throughout the annual professional entertainment season held September through May.
Their Discovery Program helps foster and promote an appreciation for the performing arts for students from grade 1 to grade 12. Discovery includes matinee shows for elementary and high schools; community programs such as dance workshops, master classes, and outreach events; and summer and March break camps.
