Excerpt from press release:

It will bring you back to a simpler time when there were no fancy gadgets or special effects; a time when all that was needed were entertainers with talent and passion and an audience that was willing to have a good time.

HAPPY is an assortment of comedic and musical sketches culminating in an evening of light entertainment!

Jessica and Daniel form Torch In Sky Productions, an adorable husband and wife duo from Montreal and they are the genuine article. Daniel’s proposal to Jessica was the big finale on their opening night back in 2013 and they’ve been touring the show ever since. Their mutual love of vaudeville and each other is what makes this show so special.

As hilarious as they are heartwarming, the show’s enthusiastic renditions of classic sketches and contemporary originals recreate that magical vaudevillian era. At the heart of HAPPY however is the oldest story ever told. Boy meets girl; boy wins girl; boy weds girl, and they live happily ever after. Together Daniel and Jessica are living their lifelong dream of gathering people in a room to smile, to laugh and to have a good time. It’s what makes them happy, and it’s guaranteed to make you happy too!
