The Tale of London Town

This cross-disciplinary production is a celebration of main street stories gathered from London’s downtown core, and the result of a two-phase endeavor begun in the summer of 2013. Step inside the storefront newsroom for our live retrospective report on the evolving nature, cultural happenings, and unfolding news events of this vibrant, changing town over the years.

Based on interviews with business owners, local heroes and residents, The Tale of London Town is an original creation that mixes sound bites, archives, music, and interviews into an unparalleled multi-media experience. Inspired by these living memories, meticulously gathered, the show chronicles the changing core of the city by weaving oral histories and archives with live performance, bringing legendary local stories to life!

Meet us at The Grand Theatre Box office and promenade with us as we take a trip through downtown streets and alleys. Very special guests, like living London legend Jack DiCarlo, will take part in helping us remember the glory days when everything was at its best… or was it? Maybe the best is yet to come, as these local tales from the past inspire dreams for the future.

The Tale of London Town is part of a multi-year venture, culminating with Canada’s sesquicentennial in 2017, which celebrates main streets across the land. One story at a time, The Tale of a Town project will capture the collective community memory of our country, preserving our oral history and the stories that define us, while building new ones for future generations to come!
