WAIT! 2019 IS NOT OVER!
Theatre Collingwood is ready to turn up the heat for winter at the Blue Mountain Inn, November 20 th -22 nd , when we will stage another great musical celebration in the Weider Ballroom. This location was a favourite of many people this summer and is the venue for our next show “ Soul Sisters”. This rousing musical tribute tells the story of the birth of Soul music and R&B, while reflecting upon the incredible women who inspired it. Grab your friends and come on out…..this is going to be a really fun and entertaining show!
From the creative team of Colin Stewart and Chris McHarge, who brought us the sold-out run of Rockin’ All Night in 2018, Soul Sisters is another upbeat production that starts with music from Big Mama Thornton, Etta James, Aretha Franklin, and Gladys Knight, then weaves through the 60’s and 70’s with Patti LaBelle, Diana Ross and Tammi Terrell and shakes it up with contemporary hit-makers Tina Turner, Chaka Kahn, Sade, Whitney Houston and many more! These women blazed a trail in music that has inspired multiple generations. Audiences will be treated to incredible renditions of their most beloved songs!

Soul Sisters features three amazing lead singers and a top-notch band! Taking the stage to embody the iconic singers in this walk down memory lane are, Saveria D’ippolito, Tyanna Nikkita and Shane Philips.
Bios:
Saveria D’ippolito is a 22-year-old singer, songwriter and producer from London, Ontario. D’ippolito was exposed to many styles of music growing up and her voice reflects a smooth R&B quality with the infectious precision of pop music and an unmistakable psychedelic soul. She has already performed all over North America, making several notable radio and television appearances along the way.
Tyanna Nikkita is a Toronto native who began her professional singing career at the age of 18. After studying Music Production at Seneca College, Nikkita performed regularly with her band around Toronto before adding modelling and background acting in such shows as Suits and Nikkita to her performance repertoire. She has also appeared with such notable artists as Lorraine Lawson, Sean Jones, Jordan John, and The Truly Band’s Trust Chen Pow.
Shane Philips is a singer-songwriter who was raised among a family of singers in a small Ontario town on the banks of the Grand River. His devotion to singing flourished as a child when he transitioned from singing with his church choir to performing classical Italian opera during his elementary years. As well as being an actor and dancer, Philips’ powerful voice and technical ability has gained him starring roles in a variety of musicals including , We Love Harry Belafonte, Sweet Soul Music , as well as Memories of the Rat Pack , playing Sammy Davis, Jr. Philips was a contestant on “The Voice” and recently sang with living legend, Stevie Wonder at Toronto’s Air Canada Centre.
Soul Sisters also showcases an incredibly versatile 4-piece band, led by Musical Director, Colin Stewart whose 30-year professional career has enabled him to perform with such blues artists as John Ellison, The McAuley Boys, Dutch Mason, Chicago Pete, Ellen McIlwaine and Phil Guy.

Soul Sisters promises to bring audiences to their feet with songs like Hound Dog, RESPECT, Rock Steady, Ain't No Mountain High Enough, Lady Marmelade, Proud Mary, Last Dance, I'm Every Woman , to name just a few of the hits in this sure-fire crowd pleaser. Don’t miss it!
