A Century of Applause - Celebrating 100 Years

Sanderson Centre Stage

This season has been 100 years in the making. It is a daunting task to look at all that has been on our stage over the years and to find a way to celebrate that rich history. We’ve tried to meet the challenge and entertain you with selections in keeping with our three eras:

  • Vaudeville – The Temple Theatre - Brantford’s Supreme Playhouse
  • Film – The Capitol was Brantford’s premiere movie palace for nearly sixty years
  • Performance – The Sanderson Centre has been bringing the performing arts to our community for nearly a third of a century

To achieve this, we’re bringing you our biggest season yet and to help you be a part of it, we’re proud to announce a new member program featuring a Centennial Membership with great benefits. We’ll also have some centennial keepsakes available for purchase, improved ticket and guest services, and other enhancements to the audience experience for you to look forward to.

On behalf of all of us here at the Sanderson Centre, we can’t wait to welcome you to become a part of our centennial season.

Make sure you subscribe to our concert announcements so you are always in the know.

Hurry and grab your seats for what promises to be a memorable season!

Brace Yourself - Community Season Opener

Sun Oct 6 7:00 PM

Brantford's own Debra Brown has assembled a stellar celebration in two acts - a fun-filled cocktail of circus, dance and live music to celebrate this special anniversary.  Her show features members of Zacada Circus and Jordan Muir, world hacky sack champion, plus fabulous Cirque Du Soleil alumni, including Dominic Dagenais, the world's only trampoline flipping guitarist, and contortionist Lisbeth Mikoleit. Musicians Brent Titcomb, Jennifer Langton, Grindl Kuchirka, Pierre Laurendeau will be on hand to enliven the evening. Even now, more special guests are coming on board to enhance this special event. In addition, accomplished local dancers and musicians will join us onstage in style to celebrate the past 100 years.   And as if this wasn't enough, Debra is also importing her flying dance experience from her world premiere Brace Yourself , a one-way ticket to a suspended reality with Captain Sterling and his crew, where gravity is a game and the passengers are willing players. You'll never look at flying the same...it’s a trip of a lifetime, bring a sandwich.

Classic Albums Live Performs Led Zeppelin IV

Sat Oct 12 8:00 PM

One of the all-time greats.  Performing Led Zeppelin's fourth album at the Sanderson Centre will be a treasured moment for not just Zeppelin fans - but for all music lovers. This is serious stuff. We've proven ourselves with the Beatles and Pink Floyd but there's something death defying about boasting a 'note for note - cut for cut' claim when it comes to Zeppelin. Expect lots of guitars, mandolins, soaring vocals, drums that sound like cannons and song after song of absolute perfection. Expect greatness. – Craig Martin, CAL founder
