Music from the past becomes a gift to the present in Becket Players’ 46th annual production: Time Warp

Covering a range of musical styles and dance, this year’s audience will be on a nostalgic voyage through the years! We start off in the 2010s, grounding us in the familiar sounds of today, before jumping from era to era. Every decade hop, brings further explorations of musical styles and hit songs, including the 50s’ good old rock & roll, the 60s’ psychedelic mix of folk rock and R&B, the disco-fueled 70s, the 80s’ eclectic new wave beats, the rebellion of 90s’ punk, and the irresistible soft rock and pop combination of the 2000s. There’s even a brief stop to visit the upbeat jump blues of the 1940s, before finally returning to the now and bringing the audience back home.

Tickets must be purchased on line and a link to the event will be emailed the day of the event

Based in Montreal, Quebec, Becket Players is a federally chartered, long-standing, non-profit organization dedicated to advance the public’s appreciation of the arts by providing the public with a high-quality variety show with our proceeds going specifically for children’s needs. Over the past 45 years, they have raised over $3.5 million dollars to help children, locally by supporting their medical, nutritional and educational needs.

Their 300+ volunteers make up the backbone of the Becket Players. Every single member of the Becket Players, from the set up crew, to the performers, and the Board of Governors that administers the organization, is an unpaid volunteer. In 2007, the Becket Players won the Accolades Award from the West Island of Montreal Chamber of Commerce for “Exceptional Community Involvement” and we continue to strive to be community conscious. In 2016 they won the National Merck award for “Neighbor of Choice” for building strong and vibrant communities by promoting a healthier society and preserving the environment.
