Hi, I’m Tim Tamashiro. From my years as radio host on CBC, and my decades long career as a singer, I’ve learned that the combined magic of stories with songs is a beautiful way to share memories with audiences. That’s why I created Timmy’s Happy Christmas 1974. It’s a holiday show aimed right at the heart of millions of Gen X’ers. They can bring their grandkids too!
The show is about an 8 year old boy named Timmy and the extraordinary memories he has from that Christmas of 1974. He arrives home one day after school to find the brand new Sears Christmas Wishbook laying facedown on his doorstep. The tsunami of thrills that come his way leading up to Christmas are the same
memories that millions of kids from those days have too.
After debuting this show at The Jack Singer Concert Hall in 2021, I’m thrilled to now bring the show to the rest of Canada. I’ll be joined by my extraordinary musician friends and a collection of songs that range from White Christmas to You’re a Mean One Mr. Grinch. We’ll have Charlie Brown moments, drinking Tang moments and I’ll even sing that Alvin and the Chipmunks tune with a helium balloon. Plus we’ll bring along a slideshow that makes the crowd laugh and gasp out loud. The
audience laughs harder at the slides than they do at my jokes!
So if you can literally smell the wood-burning set as it accidentally falls on the living room carpet... I’m sure you can imagine what fun we’ll have with Timmy’s Happy Christmas 1974.
We’d love to bring the show to you in your community!
