What’s this all about?!
In a spirit that we’ve come to think of as “escaping the rubber chicken circuit,” we’re inviting you to leave behind the banquet halls and conference centres and join us for a brand-new, Rainbow-sized experience under our iconic dome in Kildonan Park. You’ll be greeted by Rainbow Stage artists in costume as your favorite characters from past shows, who will show you around, pose for pictures, and certainly delight and entertain with more than a few surprises in store. Mingle with friends both old and new as you explore all of Rainbow Stage from backstage to the Diamond Lounge, before being treated to a catered feast courtesy of Food Evolution & WOW! Hospitality and brand-new entertainment from your favourite musical theatre company (that’s us!).
Will there be assigned seats and tables?
Nope! While there will be ample tables and seating for everybody, you’ll be free to move around the entire venue at your whim and pleasure.
How will dinner work?
Good question! We’ve worked closely with Food Evolution (a WOW! Hospitality Concept) to develop a mouth-watering “Gourmet Buffet” to be served up from stations at the venue. Delight your tastebuds with a selection of tantalizing offerings from caprese salad to Manitoban Prime Rib (and even some brand-new signature cocktails). As mentioned above, there will be ample table seating throughout the venue at which you’ll able to sit and enjoy your meal during dinnertime. (Check out the menu)
Reality TV? Am I going to be IN the show?
In a manner of speaking, yes! But don’t worry, we won’t ask you to perform anything. In the context of the story, Rainbow Stage will be playing host for the finals of the made-up hit reality T.V. show ‘God, I Hope I Get It!’, where well-known characters from past musicals will compete to earn a spot in Rainbow Stage’s 2016 Company. Contestants will have one last chance to showcase their talent and impress the judges in front of a “studio audience” of Encore guests, and ultimately the audience will vote to determine the winner of the show. With a cast featuring some of Winnipeg’s most talented artists reprising iconic roles from past Rainbow Stage productions and backed up by some of the best dancers from elite dance studios around the city, you’ll be tapping your feet and laughing before you know it.
What’s the dress code?
It depends on how ostentatious you’re feeling! Dress casually according to your comfort, but if you feel like breaking out your top hat and tails or a ball gown we wholeheartedly encourage you to do so.
Well, I’m sold! How much are tickets, what do they include, and where can I get them?
Fantastic! Individual tickets are available for $175 each, and groups of 10 are available for $1,600. Dinner, drinks, and entertainment are all included, and you will receive a tax-deductible charitable donation receipt for a portion of your ticket price.
