Showplace Performance Centre Stage Receives Brand New Flooring

Over the course of a year, the stage floor at Showplace Performance Centre sees a lot of foot traffic. Performances with a full cast, dance competitions, and stage props and sets being wheeled on and off the stage can really wear out parts of the floor.

Whelan's Flooring Centre graciously stepped up to replace the 18-year-old stage floor, and in return the stage will now be known as the Whelan's Flooring Stage.

Canadian stand-up comedian Ron James—who also has a show there on October 25th & 26th—even dropped by to raise a glass and toast the occasion as well!

We're floored by this news—congrats Showplace!
