Three of the province’s top performance venues have announced their 2016-2017 lineups this week. The Capitol Theatre (Moncton), Imperial Theatre (Saint John) and the Fredericton Playhouse have all unveiled exciting seasons of programming for New Brunswick audiences collectively totaling over 150 performances.

The new season at Saint John’s Imperial Theatre includes farewell performances by acclaimed vocal group The Nylons as well as Canada’s First Lady of Country Music, Carroll Baker. Cape Breton super-group The Barra MacNeils will also mark their return to the province for another of their much loved holiday shows, The Barra MacNeil’s Christmas.
