A Tribute to Country Legends

Conceived and Directed by Mark DuMez | Musical Direction by Heather Burns

Get ready for a blast from the past with one of the season’s most anticipated shows! The Chemainus Theatre will be filled with nostalgic country classics of the world’s greatest country legends as Classic Country Roads takes centre stage from June 17 through August 21.

Walk a country mile with our comedic hosts in this old-timey, fun lovin’ hayride of a revue that takes you through genres from classic country, western, bluegrass, honky tonk, rockabilly, country waltz, old-time country, and the many others from the Grand Ole Opry. If you loved Twist and Shout, you’ll love this intimate classic country revue. Join us as we pay tribute to great performers like Conway Twitty, Loretta Lynn, Johnny and June, Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers, Tammy Wynette, George Jones, Tanya Tucker, Reba McEntire, Garth Brooks, Travis Tritt, and many more. We’ll count down the charts of some of the early classic country music’s greatest hits.

Classic Country Roads is conceived and directed by Mark DuMez, Artistic Director at Chemainus Theatre Festival. There is a wide range of vocal abilities throughout the show, as the six singers perform medleys of songs, accompanied by a stellar five-piece live band, all under the guidance of Music Director Heather Burns. Craig Alfredson, whose stunning visual elements span multiple decades, provides audience members with an experience of storytelling that this genre of music is known for. The Set Design by Nic Timmenga and complementary Costume Design by Crystal Hanson complete the magic of this production. The result is an exciting journey of music that covers all genres through a vast repertoire of music that radically changed an entire generation and impacted the cultural climate of one of the most important eras in country music history.
