Matthew Good, Jann Arden, Sass Jordan, The Washboard Union and more are coming to the Shell Theatre. 
 
The Fort Saskatchewan theatre unveiled its 2018/2019 line-up on Monday (Jun.11). 
 
"We work for a year, sometimes a year and a half to get these artists lined-up," said Josh Gennings, the Shell Theatre's supervisor.
 
Echo Nebraska performed during the revealing.  
 
October's highlights include Jimmy Rankin and Canadian-rocker Sass Jordan.
 
In November, Jann Arden will make a stop in the Fort during her national tour. That show has already sold out. Other noteables include county artists Washboard Union and Kory Wlos. Dufflebag Theatre will return for another performance.
 
December features Tom Jackson and the Best Newfoundland Christmas Pageant... Ever!
 
"There's a little something for everyone in our season," said Gennings.
 
As the theatre moves into 2019, January boasts the Alberta Opera and California & Montreal Guitar Trios. The month wraps up with Cathy Jones (This Hour has 22 Minutes) and Bruce McCulloch (Kids in the Hall) performing together.
 
There are six shows in February including Matt Dusk, Al Simmons, Aaron Goodwin and an acoustic show from Matthew Good.
 
"I wouldn't be surprised if Matthew Good (tickets) flew off the shelf," added Gennings.
 
Hypnotist Wayne Lee will be back in March. The Arrogant Worms will also play a special St. Patrick's Day Show.
 
In April and May, The Celtic Tenors and Ruthie Foster will perform. 
 
26 shows in total are a part of the season. For a full list, visit the Shell Theatre's website. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Monday, June 18.
