"Our audience was thoroughly enchanted with Wendy Lands. Her talent, charismatic energy and amazing band filled the theatre with meaningful memories and wonderful music. The crowd appreciated how Wendy interacted with them, especially the lucky few who were able to join Wendy on stage to demonstrate their dance moves! It was apparent that everyone enjoyed themselves, which was evident from their clapping, foot tapping and singing along. Our staff and volunteer ushers shared in the delight. We are thrilled to have shared this memorable evening with our audience." - Eli Lukawitz Marketing and Sponsorship, Michael Grit Theatre Manager at Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts
