December 2018 - An Evening and Afternoon of Christmas Music and a
Staged Reading of this Timeless Christmas Classic

The McCloskey Project is a collective endeavour, the aim of which is to foster, support, and promote music, art, and culture within our Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry and surrounding communities. Our home base, and creative hub is the historic and unique McCloskey Hotel in Chesterville, Ontario

It is here that we host events of all sorts; nights that include food, drink, and wonderful live music, and days filled with drawing, painting and relevant discourse!


Please join us, and allow this project to evolve, providing cadence to our collective voice!


What a great turn out! Thank you to all who came to our sold out dinner theatre nights at McCloskey's Hotel and to the Show Only at the Old Town Hall in Winchester. This show was a great success and we are happy to say we collected $300 for a local charity!!

The Questionable Comedians are standup comics Dan Allaire, Jamie Carr, Mike Baird & Simon McLinden. The guys first started performing in early 2017, after discovering a shared interest in stand-up comedy. Since then they have helped raise over $17,000 for local organizations, while selling out events in the greater Cornwall area. They have opened for renowned Canadian funnyman Derrick Seguin, and a few of the guys recently performed as part of the Mike MacDonald Summer Comedy Competition. This is a show not to be missed!
