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!

WALK WITH ME
May 11 @ 7:00 pm
‘Walk With Me’ is meditative film about a community of Zen Buddhist monks and nuns who have dedicated their lives to mastering the art of mindfulness with their world-famous teacher Thich Nhat Hanh.

Directors & Writers: Marc J. Francis, Max Pugh

Stars: Benedict Cumberbatch, Thich Nhát Hanh, Brother Pháp De

 

 

“Slow down and breathe. This contemplative journey follows in the steps of Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh and is a rare insight into life within a monastic community. The sun rises. Everything is calm and still. Life is beautifully serene as Benedict Cumberbatch’s composed, meditative voice reads an extract from Thich Nhat Hanh’s early journals. So begins Max Pugh and Marc J Francis’ (Black Gold, LFF2006) fascinating and immersive exploration of what it means to devote one’s life to mindfulness. With unprecedented access to the famous secluded monastery of Plum Village in the South West of France, Walk With Me captures the daily routine and rituals of monks and nuns on a quest to develop a deep sense of presence. It is an insightful rumination on the pursuit of happiness, living in the present and our attachment to material things – a welcome remedy to the stresses of city life and a world in turmoil.” — Laure Bonville, London Film Festival

 —————————————-

GARDEN OF THE GODS: The Flora and Ecology of Namaqualand

Namaqualand is the semi-arid to arid region in the northwest corner of South Africa, comprising an area roughly the size of New Brunswick. Although Namaqualand has no defined political boundaries, it falls primarily within the province of Northern Cape. What makes it so remarkable botanically and striking visually is that it is the home of approximately 4000 plant species, most of which bloom within the same period of approximately one to two months (late July through early September), following the spring rains that normally begin in late April or May. (By comparison, the great spring floral displays of West Australia are comprised of far fewer species.) Although the spring rains can be very sporadic, most years they are sufficient to bring forth good to incredible floral displays, which may be apparent along the main north-south highway commencing around Vanrhysndorp and continuing north almost to the border with Namibia. However, the greatest discoveries are invariably made by persons who go slowly, wander along unpaved secondary routes and farm roads, then get out of their vehicles and walk in search of plant specimens in the highly varied, often rocky landscape.

Freeman first travelled to Namaqualand in 1980 and returned in 2018 for his 40th extended visit. For 25 years, beginning in 1982 he conducted four annual wild-flower workshops at the Kamieskroon Hotel in the little village of the same name. During this period he amassed what is unquestionably the world’s largest collection of photographs of Namaqualand in bloom, although the University of Stellenbosch has the largest picture collection of individual species. Also, through his educational efforts in conservation and preservation, he helped to initiate land purchases that eventually led to the creation of Namaqualand National Park, which begins across the road from the Kamieskroon Hotel and now extends 70km to the coast and outward from there to include 100km. of the ocean floor.

Beginning in 2007 and continuing to the present, Freeman has led a two-week wilderness camping tour in March (autumn), the first week from a base camp on the Atlantic coast in Namaqualand National Park, the second week in the Richtersveld National Park, the spectacular mountain desert in the far north of Namaqualand along the Orange River, the border with Namibia. Some years this trip also provides the opportunity to see and photograph varieties of March lilies, a few striking species that bloom in autumn, but send forth leaves only after the spring rains.

Namaqualand, the small village of Kamieskroon, and the little Kamieskroon Hotel have become Freeman’s second home. In this program he invites you to visit him there.

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

Sold out in more than 20 cities internationally!

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.
