You never know what to expect at Georgian’s annual variety show . . . dancers, singers, comedians or maybe even the odd zombie.Georgian’s Got Talent (or Not!) Variety Show – Thursday, March 23 and Friday, March 24, 2017, Barrie Campus

Georgian’s annual benefit concert has been raising funds for financially challenged students for the past 25 years. The event showcases the talents of our students and staff. Proceeds from the show go toward the Gord Bastian Entrance Award – a $1,000 bursary presented to a first-year Georgian student. The rest of the proceeds go to a special financial aid fund to help students.

This year’s show will also celebrate Georgian’s 50th anniversary as well as Canada’s 150th anniversary.
