DON’T DRESS FOR DINNER – Annapolis District Drama Group
Apr 27 @ 7:30 pm

When Jacqueline announces she is off for to visit her mother, an ideal opportunity presents itself for her husband Bernard to inveigle his chic, Parisian mistress Suzanne into their country cottage for the weekend. Why not invite along his best friend Robert too, as an alibi? And to make the arrangements easier, he’s hired a Cordon Bleu cook to rustle up the necessary gourmet delights.

The cook? Ah, that’ll be street-wise Suzette. And her jealous husband, George? Well, he’s a BIG fella! And did we mention that elegant Jacqueline is having a torrid secret affair with the rakish Robert?

Throw in a dash of Chanel and a glug or two of Cointreau – the stage is set for a hilarious, fast moving farcical romp of mistaken identities, illicit trysts, quick-thinking improvisations, bribery and seduction, as the plans for passion turn into a nuptial nightmare!

REBECCA PERRY’S Confessions of a Redheaded Coffee Shop Girl
May 13 @ 2:00 pm

Anthropology graduate Joanie Little is stuck working as a barista. Rather than let this get her down, she decides to make the most of her “underemployment”. So, much like Jane Goodall did with chimpanzees, this upbeat Miss studies her only available subjects: the eccentric customers of her coffee shop ‘jungle’. Hilarity ensues, with jazzy tunes, co-worker showdowns, life lessons and even a bit of romance. Created and developed by Toronto’s critically acclaimed solo performer, Rebecca Perry, Joanie Little brews up a comedic storm that you won’t want to miss! Confessions of a Redheaded Coffeeshop Girl is the internationally successful show for anyone who has ever had a job they didn’t like.

  • “Impeccable comic timing and faultless delivery. Perry is an animated and engaging performer.” – ★★★★★ – The Nouse UK
  • “Clever, amusing and wonderfully executed… I would highly recommend you see it.” – Arts Award Voice
  • “Her comedic timing is spot on, her acting is superb as she slips in and out of characters, and her singing is pitch perfect. The description for the show says that it’s suitable for ages 9-99 and I think that’s true.” – Mooney on Theatre
  • “Loved every minute of Rebecca Perry’s “Confessions of a Redheaded Coffeeshop Girl.” What a talented, generous artist. And, what pipes! Even bought the CD.” – NNNN – Glenn Sumi, NOW Magazine
  • This is solo show performance at its best, with Perry rolling out a cast of characters in Joanie’s world like a wild kingdom field guide. I dare you not to fall in love with Joanie Little – and, by extension, Rebecca Perry.” – Life With More Cowbell

RAWLINS CROSS
May 19 @ 7:30 pm

Rawlins Cross, one of Canada’s most accomplished and beloved Celtic bands, was formed in St. John’s in the late 1980s by songwriting brothers Dave Panting (guitar and mandolin) and Geoff Panting (keyboards and accordion) and Ian McKinnon (highland pipes and tin whistle). Since then, Rawlins Cross has been at the vanguard of the fusion of Celtic traditional music with the rhythms of rock, pop and worldbeat music. Equally at ease with a soulful Highland Air (MacPherson’s Lament) or a raucous party song (Colleen, Reel ‘n’ Roll, Rock Steady), Rawlins Cross never fails to electrify its faithful fans. Over its nearly 30 year run, Rawlins Cross has always been a “fan favourite” on the North American and European concert and festival circuits.

The band burst onto the East Coast recording scene in late ’89 with its first indie recording, A Turn of the Wheel and a video for the single Colleen. Just weeks after its release, Colleen scored a top ten radio slot on Toronto’s influential CFNY station and Rawlins Cross was on its way.

In 1992, the band released Crossing The Border, which further developed the ground-breaking fusion of highland bagpipes, mandolin and accordion with a rocking rhythm section. A year later the band recorded Reel ‘n’ Roll, which would prove to be its best-selling commercial success and launch a national radio hit with the title track. With the solid rhythm section of Halifax bassist Brian Bourne and Ontario-based drummer Howie Southwood, Rawlins Cross enlisted PEI singer Joey Kitson to complete its signature sound.

Already one of the top concert draws in the region, and with a growing fanbase across Canada and in Europe, Rawlins Cross released Living River in 1995, which garnered two Juno Award nominations. The band toured Canada three times that year and signed a licensing deal for its music in Europe.

During that period Rawlins Cross performed live on the nationally-televised East Coast Music Awards before an audience of two million viewers.

The band expanded its international audience by headlining the 9th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Celebration Festival in Germany and also representing Canada at the Expo Cumbre de las Americas in Santiago, Chile.

Two more albums followed: Celtic Instrumentals in 1997, a retrospective collection and the studio album Make It On Time, which would prove to be the band’s last album for more than a decade. With total album sales topping 100,000 units, Rawlins Cross has been one of the region’s most successful bands.

In 2008 Rawlins Cross reunited after a several year hiatus and released Anthology, a compilation of its best recorded songs. In Fall 2010, the band released Heart Head Hands (GroundSwell/ Warner Music). This marked the band’s first full album release in 12 years. Around that time, the band performed for Queen Elizabeth II at a large outdoor event in Halifax.

Rawlins Cross, has, again, rekindled their magic with their six-track EP, Rock Steady, released December 1st, 2017 through GroundSwell Music. Rock Steady was co-produced by Jon Landry and Geoff Panting. This collection of new songs along with a string of successful festival performances, has added some spring to the step of this venerable East Coast act.

NEIL DIAMOND TRIBUTE: Jay White
May 25 @ 7:30 pm

For some 25 years Jay White has been providing audiences with the ultimate stage experience, convincing them that he IS Neil Diamond.  Critics call Jay White one of the world’s most convincing recreations.

Energizing stages with a touch of class and a dash of Rock-n-Roll, Jay continues the musical legacy of Neil Diamond in 5 countries and over 9000 shows. White just wrapped up an eight-year, 2000 show run in Las Vegas  — the longest running act of its kind in the U.S.

Leeza Gibbons of “Entertainment Tonight” wrote: “He’s uncanny and truly amazing!”

In 2008, Hollywood Director Ron Howard cast Jay to play Neil Diamond in the Academy Award nominated film “Frost/Nixon”. In 2011, Jay was cast as Diamond in the musical drama film “Beautiful Noise”.

In 1996 and 2002, White met Diamond before his Vegas MGM appearances, where Neil told Jay to “keep singing, so I can stay home and relax! Your friend in music”.

From passionate crowds rushing the stage to 18,000 screaming fans in Salt Lake City, White brings his show to King’s Theatre, where you will believe that he IS Neil Diamond.

(Holding box office records worldwide, with 38 songs in the Top 10 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary charts, Neil Diamond has sold more than 100 million records worldwide, making him one of the best-selling musicians of all time. A legendary singer, songwriter and performer, Diamond has toured the world consecutively for 50 years. Diamond just announced his retirement from touring due to his recent diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease. )

XARA Choral Theatre: RISE
Jun 3 @ 2:00 pm

Xara Choral Theatre invites you to celebrate ten years of choral innovation and the fiercely talented performers who have helped them make their mark, along with the stories that have inspired the work.

RISE is a collection of four short pieces of choral theatre. Each explores what it means to be a woman searching for agency and fighting for change while trying to honour her elders and her past. 

The ensemble will be joined by Xara alumnae, several young singers from our Chrysalis Youth Mentorship program, and guest artists Rebecca Thomas, and Michelle Raine. Each section of the show has been collaboratively developed with the featured artist and will include a re-imagined Greek myth, slam poetry, and vulnerable monologue. Music will vary from new works by Canadians Don Macdonald and Kim Baryluk to music by Finnish, Tamilian, and African-American composers.

The narratives that come alive through this show celebrate, affirm, challenge, and mourn the unique roles women play in our culture. It may leave you with new perspectives on the many ways of being a woman, a protector, and a bearer of history.

THERESA MALENFANT & JOHN CAMPBELLJOHN
Jun 9 @ 7:30 pm

CELEBRATE THE BLUES WITH LEGENDS THERESA MALENFANT & JOHN CAMPBELLJOHN!

Hailing from Dieppe, NB, Theresa Malenfant grew up surrounded by a musically-talented family. She made her singing debut at the age of fourteen and was soon on stage, dueting with the great Dutch Mason. After many years of success, both in her native Canada and during a five year stint living and performing in Europe, Malenfant has a number of critically acclaimed albums to her credit and 30 years of performing under her belt. The vocal powerhouse in the tradition of Janis Joplin and Etta James has amassed an incredible career, one that has shown no signs of slowing down.

 

John Campbelljohn’s acoustic blues performances he makes the most of the song. Campbelljohn soulfully commands the stage with rich vocals, while his powerfully prolific technique on guitar or trusty dobro lap steel further embellishes each composition. His power trio ups the ante with an electric sound that can pummel an audience into submission or captivate them with the subtleties of ace musicians driven solely by the love of their craft.

A tight rhythm section fronted by Campbelljohn’s distinctive prowess on slide guitar quickly demonstrates that, although John’s a Cape Bretoner, he’s been cut from a plaid of a very different color. Power blues that touch on rock, reggae and roots with a few overtones of pure country – these are John Campbelljohn’s stock and trade. He’s also added the wondrous sounds of the pedal steel to his live band shows to haunting effect. The overall quality of the musicianship, the energy of his delivery and the guaranteed good times that spring from the band’s performances are proof of the pudding.

Acoustically, John combines the influences of such diverse players as Fred McDowell, Ry Cooder and John Hammond while his electric shows earmark everyone from Sonny Landreth to Johnny Winter, Clapton to Duane Allman. A simple listen to any of his six CD releases tell the tale that John Campbelljohn – solo or otherwise – is a born performer and a credit to his accomplishments: Blues Artist of the Year, Guitarist of the Year, Slide Guitarist of the Year. His is a sophisticated, well-informed and progressive definition of the blues and his distinctive edge has been applauded from Sydney to Stuttgart. Treat yourself to something truly fan-friendly and fun with a no-nonsense master of many genres.
