Find a niche and make it your own. That is what husband and wife duo Tony and Courtney LePage aim to do with their latest venture, Rogue Productions. 

With a wealth of shared experience on and off Broadway stages, the LePages returned to Tony’s hometown of Fredericton shortly after the start of the pandemic. Over the past four years they have mounted a number of successful productions including a musical based on the songs of Air Supply and have tapped into the sounds of the season staging a holiday show of their own at the Fredericton Playhouse. 

Next month, Rogue Productions will be featured as part of the St. Andrews’ Canada Day celebrations with their show Canucks on Broadway: A Canada Day Celebration! A tribute to Canada’s popular music legacy, the show will feature songs by BTO, the Guess Who, Barenaked Ladies, Alanis Morissette, Shania Twain, Celine Dion performed by a mix of local talent and a few Broadway expats. 

“We are thrilled to bring the magic of Broadway to New Brunswick with this show,” said Tony LePage, artistic director of Rogue Productions. “Canada Day is a time to celebrate our nation’s rich cultural heritage, and what better way to do so than through the power of our music!” 

Canucks on Broadway will take place July 1 at the KIRA Amphitheatre located at Kingsbrae Garden in St. Andrews.

Rogue Productions’ Broadway by the Sea will return to St. Andrews for the third year in a row on August 24 followed by another Home for Christmas performance later in the season.
