Over 3 years in the building, all stone open-air amphitheatre complete with a backdrop of nearly 90 fountains. The granite stage walls and outer wings are over 400 feet and surrounded by gardens inside and out. Three individual 80 foot staircase fountains meet behind the stage.
The water theatre was inspired by Andre Le Notre's 1634 design at the Palace of Versailles.
Whistling Gardens owner Darren Heimbecker, composes the music and choreographs the fountains shows.
About Our Fountain Shows
A composition is especially written for the fountain program. Darren works with state of the art digital technology in his home studio to do most of the creative writing, editing, mixing and mastering. The latest in computer technology runs the fountain program. Have a break while touring through the gardens in the water theatre!
New! Whistling Gardens incorporated Canada's first computerized pumps into its existing program. They're controlled directly from a computer without piping of any kind. Their flexibility in programming allows for a much greater diversity for fountain programs.
We hope you enjoy the show this season.
