Tom Jackson and Famous People Players

The next ACT Out is scheduled for Friday, Feb 27th at the Confederation Centre Main Stage.

The next ACT Out is scheduled for Friday, Feb 27th where we will take in An Evening with Tom Jackson and the Famous People Players at the Confederation Centre Main Stage or “Afro-Musica. Both events take place at the Confed Centre on the same evening.

The Famous People Players will present their show ‘Shake, Rattle and Roll’ featuring the music of the 50s, 60s and seventies in an explosion of laughter, colour and dance.


For those of you who don’t know, The Famous People Players is a group of folks with developmental challenges, who have been trained to manipulate life-sized puppets. Florescent paint and black light make their particularly striking.

Award winning Canadian performer Tom Jackson will touch funny bones as well as hearts with his show ‘Tom Foolery’, a show filled with comedy, stories, theatre and songs. Appointed an Officer of the Order of Canada in 2000, Jackson is well known for his music and for his humanitarian work.

Afro-Musica is a seven-piece Afro-pop show band formed in 1992 by bandleader Edo-King, also known as Ed Matwawana, that combines traditional and contemporary African sounds and rhythms and expresses them through music and dance (by times the audience has been known to join in the dancing).



Curtain time at the Confederation Centre is 8pm for both shows. Please contact the Ticket office directly to order your tickets. Phone number is 566-1267. Toll-free 1-800-565-0287.
