MAKE ‘EM LAUGH! An IANA Fundraising Concert!

melWell, summer is here, we finally have some nice weather, and it’s time for some live theatre at the Marble Arts Centre!  IANA is in the middle of a year long hiatus, after exploding into the eastern Ontario theatre scene last year, but we just couldn’t resist getting together to put on one little show!!!

MAKE ‘EM LAUGH is an IANA Theatre company original creation, conceived by myself, Tim Porter, and written by the hilarious Tricia Black and Joel MacMeekin.  The show takes a hilarious trip through the early days of Broadway, with Musical Theatre and Standard favorites, sung by this fantastic cast of IANA all stars.

We spent several months combing through all the classics, and we put together the show that we knew would entertain the socks off of Tweed, and let everyone have a fun, relaxing evening in the beautiful ambiance of the air conditioned Marble Arts Centre.

This evening is going to be a great one of magic, laughter and music.  We’ve lined up a terrific cast of characters, created a beautiful projection setting, hired one of the most talented pianists in Toronto, we’ve got a cash bar, refreshments, 50/50, and more!  We can’t wait for this magic night and we are so excited that the community in Tweed is coming out in droves to support us.

MAKE ‘EM LAUGH stars Tim Porter, Tricia Black, Joel MacMeekin, and Danielle Leger, with special guest Julie Kevan and Musical Direction by Julia Sunay.  What’s your favourite song from the early 20’s or 30’s?  Chances are, you’re going to hear it and more in MAKE ‘EM LAUGH!!!

Tickets are $25.00 and are available at the Food Company in Tweed, or online at  The show takes place Saturday, July 27th @ 7:30 PM, and all proceeds go to directly supporting IANA’s future endeavors.  Don’t miss this amazing evening of world class talent in one of the funniest shows you will see this year!!!

Time for some beautiful summer theatre in Tweed, our favourite place to be!!!  And don’t forget to join us for a drink and a chat after the show.  This show is sure to delight!  Don’t miss it!!!
