The show is set in 1901 on the ten-year anniversary of Sir John A. MacdonaldÍs death. You will follow ñSALON Theatreî a turn-of-the-century fictional acting troupe that is getting ready to mount KingstonÍs very first outdoor theatrical show about Sir John AÍs life and legacy. The often dysfunctional theatre troupe will immerse the audience in music, comedy, and hijinks as they bring the audience along on a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience through the downtown core of Kingston.
