    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Saw this great musical show which lasted with non stop songs for 3 hours except for a 20 minute break in the middle. Excellent singers both male and female and very good dancers. The orchestra was excellent also. We clapped and clapped so had 3 encores
    A yearly event.
    In a great theater lots of car parking and easy of access. Bar and restaurant attached. You sat at tables and could order drinks during the performance.
    Must reserve from your motel.

Jonquière Local Customs

    by ChuckG Written Nov 3, 2006

    Sagueneens as they're called are known to be among the friendliest people you will ever meet. Put your big city bubble aside and mingle with the locals. Whenever I go there, I am always amazed how the service is good and the people are so nice. Plus, their regional accent is beautiful, hundred years of isolation has made this part of Quebec unique in its culture, language and customs.
