Plenty to see and do at Shenkman Arts Centre this fall

The Shenkman Arts Centre will play host to a number of great shows this fall as well as several new art exhibits.

International illusionist Aaron Matthews and his canine friends return to the Shenkman Arts Centre on Friday, Oct. 6, for a repeat performance of Dogs Do Magic, an unforgettable evening of magic, comedy and canine hijinks.

These mind-reading, acrobatic dogs will steal the show, your heart and any un-attended treats in the venue. Tickets prices range from $30 to $50 and can be purchased by visiting

Bilingual comedienne Stéphanie Morin-Robert will perform two shows on Thursday, Oct. 12 and Friday, Oct. 13. The Oct. 12 show will be en français and the Oct. 13 show will be in English.

Blindside is a comedy that will open your eyes to resilience, empathy and self-acceptance. In this captivating piece of bravery, Morin-Robert, who lost an eye in her battle against cancer, tells us about her life when she was only seven years old: a fiery little girl wielding her glass eye like a weapon. With the help of her cat, a pair of sunglasses and an untimely superpower, she quickly discovers that she is able to face the bullies who torment her at her new school and to accept her handicap.

This powerful show combines humor, narration, puppet play, audiovisual work and interaction with the public. Tickets are $35 each and can be purchased online at

With a massive online following of 310,000+ subscribers and an astonishing 50+ million channel views, Flute Siva brings his exceptional talent from the digital realm to the grand stage on Saturday, Oct. 14, presenting a concert with several Juno Award-winning musicians backing him up. Ticket prices range from $36.25 to $56.25.

On Oct. 27, Vietnamese born Huu Bac and his quintet will perform in the intimate surroundings of the Richcraft Theatre as part of the Shenkman Arts Centre’s World Music series.

Founded in 2013, the Huu Bac Quintet has toured in Canada, the USA, China and Korea.

Their jazz-oriented repetoire employs a number of different instruments including the Vietnamese monochord dan bau. Tickets are $28.25 for adults and $20 for students.

Looking ahead to November, Paquette Productions will be presenting their Motown Revue on Wednesday, Nov. 15 featuring tri-bute performances to such legendary artists as Diana Ross and the Supremes, Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gaye and Aretha Franklin.

On Nov. 18, the Shenkman Arts Centre will host the Sounds of Hope Benefit Concert with Born Ruffians and The Desert Island Big Band. Proceeds from the concert will benefit the Centre for Treatment of Sexual Abuse and Childhood Trauma.

Away from the stage, the Société franco-ontarienne du patrimoine et de l’histoire d’Orléans, or SFOPHO, will be presenting their third annual arts and crafts fair in the foyer of the Shenkman Arts Centre on Sunday, Oct. 1. Admission is free.

Last, but by no means least, the Trinity Art Gallery is currently exhibiting works by members of Arteast, while the Lalande + Doyle exhibition space in the lower lobby will welcome a new exhibit by Ottawa photographer Jon Stewart entitled Stillwater featuring photographs from the Greenbelt.
