Event management experts add new venue to happening ecosystem
Almost a year to the day since announcing a deal to manage the Cabaret du Casino de Montréal, Gestev is now expanding its partnership with Loto-Québec and extending its happening ecosystem to include Gatineau’s Théâtre du Casino du Lac-Leamy. Gestev is a subsidiary of Québecor Sports and Entertainment with over 30 years of experience in major event production, site management and international tour promotion. Gestev is now pleased to extend its reach into the entertainment market and offer new and diverse cultural opportunities for promoters, artists and audiences.
Today’s announcement further confirms our long-standing commitment to promote homegrown and international artists on the local stage. For more than 60 years now, Québecor has pledged its support for our cultural and economic heritage. This simply goes hand in hand with our values here in the extended Québecor family.
We’re thrilled about this new deal. It’s a real point of pride for us to bring a fresh and diverse lineup of shows to audiences in Canada’s Capital Region, said Québecor Sports and Entertainment’s Chief Operating Officer, Martin Tremblay.
I’d also like to acknowledge what an exceptional job Marc Cadieux, Guy Thérieault and their team have done of managing this venue over the years.
Loto-Québec is pleased to pass the management torch to Gestev for the Théâtre du Casino du Lac-Leamy. We have every confidence that after such a successful year at the helm of the Cabaret du Casino de Montréal, Gestev will build a strong lineup to cater to audiences in Ottawa and the Outaouais, said Casino du Lac-Leamy General Manager, Patrick Lamy.
Some 2023 shows already announced
Programming committee members Productions Martin Leclerc, Musicor Spectacles and ComediHa! have a diverse lineup of music and comedy shows up their sleeve. Tickets for some 2023 shows are already on sale, including the media premiere for none other than Gregory Charles and his one-of-a-kind Music Man show on February 9. The Quebec superstar and man of many talents will be back on stage the very next night with an all-new show, because every show is tailored to the audience’s requests. Next up on the calendar on February 24 and 25 is homegrown crowd-pleaser Roch Voisine with his Americana Light tour, featuring songs from his youth that still shape his music today.
Then in March, rock music will be taking the hall by storm with Elyzabeth Diaga’s musical review Queens of Rock (March 3), followed by the critically acclaimed musical Rock Story (March 11). Time for a little nostalgia in April with the Ultimate Elvis with Dean Z tribute show (April 14 and 15), followed by C’est si bon… de danser, a stage adaptation of the radio show C’est si bon (April 21) and Pour une histoire d’un soir, featuring three of Quebec’s hottest voices: Joe Bocan, Marie Carmen and Marie-Denise Pelletier (April 22). On April 28, the public will have the chance to attend a performance by the famous French singer and composer Michel Fugain. Next up on May 8 is the ever-popular Salvatore Adamo with a concert to serenade fans with the ballads and classics they just can’t get enough of.
