Welcome

COVID-19 Response


Dear friends and family of the Rapids Theatre.

Thank you for all your support through these trying and uncertain times. We were forced to close for an extended time do to COVID-19 restrictions as you all know.

We are reopening with certain restrictions to protect the public from spreading the COVID-19 virus not the least of which is reducing our capacity by 75%. The other issue we have to deal with was the postponement of major acts into 2021. So, we will be changing our business model to bring in the best of our regions many tribute bands.

Our new schedule will initially be Friday and Saturday nights as we phase in National acts when they become available. See our website and Facebook for more details in the near future.

Thank you for your continued support!



All previously purchased tickets for the Tesla Show will be honored at new date. Refunds available at points of purchase.



Attention Ticket Holders


We hope this message finds everyone well and staying safe and healthy. We would like to begin by saying that we continue to make our way through an unprecedented event in the history of this country. No one could have predicted this chain of events which was caused by the mandated closure of not only our business but millions of others. We remain closed since mid March and there has been no one in our offices to answer questions or comments regarding operations. We put out a few announcements about how to deal with some of the questions we have had regarding ticket refunds. Apparently there has been some confusion by a very few people who purchased tickets out of the thousands that have been sold. Some of the confusion has resulted in some negative comments on social media without having a true understanding of the situation.

The Rapids has over 33,000 Facebook friends, the vast majority of whom have been very kind and understanding regarding the COVID-19 issues. We have announced that the shows we had scheduled for this year have been canceled or postponed until 2021.

As you can imagine from watching the news regarding sports and music events, our whole industry is in an upheaval full of uncertainty regarding the future. We want to say thank you to the thousands of people who have elected to keep their tickets for use when these concerts are rescheduled. Please see our earlier announcements on the incentives we have offered as a thank you to those people.

Let me explain a few things about how the Rapids ticket refund policy works as well as how placing shows at the Rapids works. Hopefully it will help those who are most vocal understand our position. First of all as we have stated many times, the Rapids can not return ticket money per our contract with our ticket vendor which is Etix. We have a contract with them which says as follows and I quote, "ALL TICKET REFUNDS MUST COME THROUGH ETIX". The reason for this is that you bought your tickets through Etix and they have all of your credit card information, etc. If we started returning money you could also go back to Etix and claim it again. We have had other ticket vendors in the past and they all operate the same way. We understand that Etix as well as other ticket vendors have very reduced operations during this pandemic and have been very hard to reach as well. The only other suggestion that we have if you must have a refund is to dispute it on your credit card.

Many shows are brought in by outside promoters. We often do act as the promoter but there are many times that other people rent our room, therefore we have very little control over the logistics of these shows. In these cases, we have no information on cancellations, ticket refunds etc.. The Tesla show and Ministry shows are two examples. For information on ticket refunds for the Tesla and Ministry shows, please send an email to and we'll refer you to the promoters for those shows.

The Rapids theater has an excellent reputation as can be seen by the numerous awards we have won over our 11 year history and we continue to strive to become a great venue to listen to live music.

We hope this addresses some of the confusion in regards to refunds. As we continue to navigate through these unprecedented times faced by all businesses in our Country, we thank you again for understanding.



Steven Page

Steven Page’s distinctive and powerful tenor is among the most instantly recognizable voices in popular music. A member of the Canadian Music Hall of Fame with former bandmates, Barenaked Ladies, Steven Page reunited with the band he co-founded for their induction at the 2018 JUNO Awards – a night capped off by an exhilarating two song performance.

With a strong focus on his own career, Steven Page is busy.

A new album, his fifth solo effort, DISCIPLINE: HEAL THYSELF, PT. II, was released in 2018 – a year that saw Steven tour the UK & Ireland and undertake the most extensive US Tour of his solo career.

Early 2019 is all about Canada. The year started with a highly successful East Coast tour with Symphony New Brunswick and in May, Steven crosses the country, from Quebec to British Columbia (preceded by a gig in Whitehorse, YK in April) with trio members Craig Northey (Odds) and Kevin Fox. Fans in Toronto, Vancouver and Victoria will see an even more spectacular show with the trio being supported by a full rock band and horn section – Steven Page’s dream team!

Steven Page and his trio mates return to the US in June for a mini-tour with stops in Syracuse, NY, Port Clinton, OH, Ann Arbor & Spring Lake, MI, and Warrendale, PA. More US dates are planned in the fall.

Since becoming a solo artist, Steven Page has been carving out a diversified niche for himself that expands beyond recording and performing through an exhausting array of projects in music, film, theatre and television. He has composed six Stratford Festival scores, has collaborated and toured North America with Toronto’s innovative Art of Time Ensemble and performs with his rock star pals as a member of the Trans-Canada Highwaymen. Steven journeyed across Canada and the U.S. as host of TV’s The Illegal Eater and became a Chopped Canada Champion in 2017. Steven Page recently appeared in the award-winning Riddle Films production of Dreaming of a Jewish Christmas and is currently working with playwright Daniel MacIvor on a musical commissioned by the Stratford Festival called Here’s What It Takes, a theatre production featuring Page-composed songs.

Still the dynamic stage presence he’s always been, Steven Page is the consummate entertainer, performing music from both his solo career and his BNL years.

New York Times
“The artist has to ‘keep pushing through’, and it isn’t easy, but Mr. Page has the talent to make that effort worthwhile.”

Huffington Post
“[Steven Page] sings with heartfelt verve in this highly entertaining show”

Spill Magazine
“Song after song, Page demonstrates superb songwriting and amazing pop sensibilities, supported by strong arrangements and production. This album is for everyone: BNL fans, Steven Page fans, pop music fans. Music for the masses delivered by that unmistakable tenor voice. You need to hear this.”

Exclaim
“With breathtaking range and remarkable cohesion, Steven Page nudges the genre and the rest of us in this way to be more active, ambitious, and engaged. Discipline: Heal Thyself, Pt. II is a masterwork.”

The Record
“It would take a game-changing, incredibly strong record to help Page shake the baggage of his former band. But this record [Discipline] is it.”
