Canada 151: Better Late Than Sorry

The Mountie's First Farewell Tour
Conceived by Lukas Mustakas
Written by Neil Aitchison, Alex Mustakas & David Rogers
Music Compilation and Arrangements by David Rogers & Mark Payne

July 12 to Aug 4, 2018

Huron Country Playhouse


Following Canada’s sesquicentennial celebration, our love for the true north strong and free is on full display in 2018 with a brand new show that celebrates what it means to be quintessentially Canadian.

After reaching his milestone 70th birthday, RCMP Constable Archibald F. Inkster and his faithful horse are both finally being put out to pasture! Join us as our favourite Mountie throws himself a retirement hoedown complete with music, dancing, humour, and of course, some biting political satire.

Never one to pull punches, gifted comedian Neil Aitchison once again takes aim at national and international events – with outrageous opinions current affairs. Over the years, Inkster has made memorable appearances in Bending the Bows, Canadian Loonie, Canadian Toonie, Sorry…I’m Canadian, and Canadian Legends. See him one more time in this celebratory send-off that will melt your igloo.
