Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, Shrek The Musical is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure, featuring all new songs from Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Millie; Caroline, or Change) and a sidesplitting book by David Lindsay-Abaire. Shrek brings all the beloved characters you know from the film to life on stage and proves there's more to the story than meets the ears. "Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek...." And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there's one on hand...and his name is Shrek. Performances run November 17-26, 2017 at Centrepointe Theatre (Tuesday – Saturday at 7:30pm, Sundays at 2pm). Tickets are $15.74-$45.75.

Leadership is a skill that can be learned like any other ability. It affects every aspect of life, including family and work. Everyone has basic leadership skills but may not have specific skills needed to lead a particular group or organization. In the workplace, talent and hard work will only take you so far; developing your leadership skills will get you to the top. LIVE2LEAD Ottawa is a half-day simulcast, leader development experience designed to equip attendees (executives to new supervisors and entrepreneurs to teachers) with new perspectives, practical tools and key takeaways that will teach them how to become exceptional leaders. They’ll learn from world-class leadership experts and will be primed to implement a new action plan and start leading when they get back to the office (or the home).

10:00 am to 11:30 am; "Not So Quiet on the Western Front - The Grants of Formby in the Great War" by Tara Grant. Tara's grandfather, Alexander Henry Grant, and his three brothers, George, John Leslie and Douglas, all served with the British army during WWI. The brothers served in different regiments and battalions and fought at many of the major battles. Combining their service records with the Regimental war diaries and newspapers it was possible to follow their military careers through the four years of the Great War. Overcoming her fear of researching First World War records has added enormously to Tara’s understanding of the harrowing years her grandfather and his brothers experienced. Free admission and parking. Location: The Chamber, Ben Franklin Place, 101 Centrepointe Drive, Ottawa.
