Matilda by Roald Dahl
The Rotary Club of Bracebridge presents Matilda, by Roald Dahl. Matilda pits a charming, magically talented girl and her friends against some of the nastiest, meanest grown-ups you can imagine. Matilda also has some lovely adult defenders, and together she and her friends work and play together to make their world a happier place. They sing, dance and make magic happen in the way that only live theatre can!
Dwight Winter Carnival
A winter day with events for the kids to play! Head to Dwight for the ultimate Winter Carnival, featuring a pancake breakfast, Axe throwing, Fatbiking, skating, snowshoeing, archery, sleigh rides, and so much more! The day of fun-filled activities will be wrapped up with an Italian dinner, DJ, and dance.
Barstool Sports Pond Hockey Tournament
Dip into your Canadian spirit and check out the Barstool Sports Pond Hockey Tournament, which will be at the Muskoka Wharf on February 29. This four vs four pond hockey tournament format will consist of eight teams per division. There are four different divisions with varying skill levels. Come and cheer on the teams, while beep-bopping to live music.
Coffee House with Sean Cotton
Sean Cotton will be at the Muskoka Place Gallery for an intimate coffee house gathering. His songs are individual pieces that speak for themselves and follow the muse of the moment, taking you to different places and stories. He was commissioned to write original songs for a theatre piece titled When Winnie Knew, a romantic tragedy about the lover and death of Tom Thomson. He is known for his songs about life in Muskoka & his involvement in Huntsville theatre and music development.
