Great Scot! An original stage production debuting in the summer of 2018. Exciting, vibrant and highly memorable – it’s a stage show that celebrates dynamic Scottish heroes, warriors, nobility and scholars through music, dance and song. Characters rooted in dramatic Scottish history brought to life by an entertaining cast and beautiful visuals. Pipes and drums, dancers and singers, fiddlers and storytellers – It’s a contemporary spectacle with lots of traditional charm. Multiple Gemini and Canadian Screen Award winner Shelagh O’Brien brings a whimsical but theatrical twist to the College’s showcase production, in the brand new custom-designed Celtic Performing Arts Centre.
