2014 Program

Welcome to the 2nd Annual TaDa! Performing Arts festival!

Ta Da! is … theatre and performing arts weekend of new works and established productions. Ta Da! is a curated festival with a mix of touring favourites, premieres, and dramatic readings of new scripts from Outaouais writers.

Just like last year, there is an exciting participatory local community arts stream.

The festival takes place in and around the Great Hall performance space at the Wakefield Centre in Wakefield, Québec, a short walk from fine dining along the lovely Gatineau River.
