DEAR SANTA – Annapolis District Drama Group
Dec 2 @ 7:30 pm

The Annapolis District Drama Group, under the direction of Wayne Currie, presents Norm Foster’s DEAR SANTA just in time for Christmas. For audiences of all ages.

North Pole Trouble is Brewing at King’s Theatre
The Annapolis District Drama Group (ADDG) presents Dear Santa written by Norm Foster on December 1, 2 and 3, at Kings Theatre in Annapolis Royal.  It is directed by Wayne Currie who is no stranger to Kings Theatre.  Wayne has been involved in the Drama Group and with King’s Shorts for many years as an actor, a writer and a director. As well, Jane DeWolfe will be Stage Managing and Brian Dickinson will be the Music Director, both of whom are long time stalwarts with the Drama Group. The enthusiasm in rehearsals is amazing and the cast is working (and laughing) incredibly hard to provide quality Christmas cheer to the community.  
Trouble is brewing at the North Pole this year as Santa has to deal with a stowaway on the North Pole Special supply train, and a workshop faced with a shortage of glue, required to build the Christmas Toys. As well, strained relationships within Santa’s staff, mischievous elves and a sleazy sleigh salesman add to the confusing mix. Santa and his dedicated workers, however, do their best to make sure that Christmas Day will once again be the magical occasion that children of all ages dream about. This is a story that is filled with fun, laughter, music, heartache and good old-fashioned Christmas spirit.
After stowing away on the supply train to the North Pole, a young girl from Annapolis Royal, Kit Bishop (Nina Habinski), shows up to confront Santa (Miles Leahy) with a letter from her younger sister Michel (Lily Habinsky). She is found and taken to Santa by Santa’s Russian maintenance man, Bozidar (Sam Cooper). Santa’s Chief of Staff, Algernon (Brian Rice), is incensed and wants to send her home immediately. Meanwhile, Santa’s housekeeper, Octavia (Eloise Mailman), struggles in her ditzy and inept way to keep things at the Pole neat and tidy, while concealing her admiration for Algernon. At the same time, a sleazy sleigh salesman, Lou Flapdoodle (Simon Bonnington) contributes to the chaos by trying to sell a new, modern rocket-powered sleigh to our jolly hero.
Add to all of that a mix of seven hyper-active and interfering elves (Karen Tomasino, Colleen Rowland, Donnie Carter, Alex Hancock, Linda Hulme Leahy, Haley Beatty and Rachael Cheechoo) and a visit to the Pole by Kit’s mother (Shelley Habinski) and it promises to be an extremely entertaining performance.

      LOVING VINCENT
      Dec 5 @ 7:30 pm

      King’s Film Society Presentation


      The world’s first fully oil painted feature, this film brings the paintings of Vincent van Gogh to life to tell his remarkable story.

       

      On 27th July 1890 a gaunt figure stumbled down a drowsy high street at twilight in the small French country town of Auvers. The man was carrying nothing; his hands clasped to a fresh bullet wound leaking blood from his belly. This was Vincent van Gogh, then a little-known artist; now the most famous artist in the world. His tragic death has long been known, what has remained a mystery is how and why he came to be shot.

       

      Every one of the 65,000 frames is an oil-painting hand-painted by 125 professional oil- painters who travelled from all across the world to the Loving Vincent studios in Poland and Greece to be a part of the production. As remarkable as Vincent’s brilliant paintings, is his passionate and ill-fated life, and mysterious death.

       

      Directed by Dorota Kobiela and Hugh Welchman
      Starring Helen McCrory,  Jerome Flynn,  Saoirse Ronan

      “This one-of-a-kind Vincent van Gogh biopic appropriates the artist’s vibrant impasto style, using animated oil paintings to examine the mystery of his last days.” –Variety

      HEATHER RANKIN
      Dec 10 @ 7:30 pm

      Thank you to our Sponsor

       

      After over twenty-five years of performing with her siblings Heather Rankin comes into her own with A Fine Line, her debut solo record. This is Heather Rankin like you have never heard her before, breaking away from The Rankin Family’s signature sound, and forging her own musical legacy with her poetic, intimate original songs, and an eclectic mix of others. A Fine Line is an exploration of the balance between grief and joy, love and loss, and life and death. While the sound is distinctively Heather’s own, songs like “We Walk As One” conjure evocative imagery from the past she shared with her siblings, and with fans all over the world. Other songs showcase a more upbeat and contemporary side of Rankin, like her rendition of Tears for Fears’ 1985 hit “Everybody Wants To Rule The World,” which features Hip Hop Artist Quake Matthews. It is a social commentary with a Dance Club vibe. A song like David Tyson’s “Valentine” is a heart-felt love song, poignant in its simplicity, where Rankin’s soaring, angelic voice is all that is needed to hit straight to the heart.

      It is clear that A Fine Line is a personal record for Rankin, who co-wrote seven of the eleven tracks with David Tyson. “We Walk As One,” the song that her siblings, Cookie and Jimmy, sing backup vocals for, is the album’s most obviously autobiographical track. It speaks to the idea that, although physically separate, those who love and care about one another, continue to move forward together in spirit. Similarly, “I’ve Got Your Back” expresses a sense of unconditional love and support amid a cold and tumultuous world. “Titantically” is the record’s most poetic and ephemeral, the personification of a violin that is rescued from the wreckage of the Titanic, and ripped from the grasp of the person who loved it most in the world. There is a deeply emotional acknowledgement of an inherent sadness to life in A Fine Line, but what is most prominent is Rankin’s resolve to continue to move forward in spite of it. It’s an impressive feat that one album can include a myriad of songs that are individually so different from one another and yet, they come together to create deeply affecting variations on a common theme. When played separately, each track stands assuredly on its own, revealing different aspects of Rankin’s immense talent and her vibrant, complex perspective on life and music. Taken together, one begins to see rich thematic and lyrical intersections, often between the most disparate songs. She begins with laying out the struggle of the human condition, our quest toward finding, and then living as our authentic selves, and then as the album progresses we are plunged into the depths of that struggle. She leaves us, undeniably, with a pure testament of hope and gratitude.

      This is an exciting record and an exciting musical departure for Heather Rankin, who sold more than a million records as part of The Rankin Family, sang backup vocals on Carly Simon’s album The Bedroom Tapes and has been featured on the recordings of such artists as The Chieftains, Johnny Reid and Will Ackerman. Perhaps the most dramatic sense of balance in A Fine Line is Rankin’s own graceful sense of balance between her own musical past, present and future. She harkens back to her childhood in Mabou, Nova Scotia and honours her roots in that community, and in her family, but she does so in her own authentic voice. This voice has been shaped by the Gaelic traditions of her home, and by the years she spent singing the songs of her brothers and sisters, but her voice is set free here, and often euphorically so, in a way previously unheard. Proving eloquent songwriting runs in the family, Rankin takes us to more private places in her lyrics, and this mixture of vulnerability and exhilaration makes for a powerfully compelling record. After more than twenty-five years in the business, A Fine Line suggests that we are only just now getting to know Heather Rankin. She has always been known as the youngest of The Rankin Family, but now, as a solo artist, in some ways, she sounds younger, and more timely, than ever.

      MEASHA BRUEGGERGOSMAN
      Dec 17 @ 7:30 pm

      We are excited to welcome international artist Measha Brueggergosman back to the King’s Theatre stage, along with Aaron Davis on piano and Rob Piltch on guitar.

      The show will include holiday tunes, jazz favourites, music from her recent album “Freedom Songs”, and who knows? maybe even some opera! Whatever the mix, we know Measha will lift the lid off the house.

      Motivated and hungry for new experiences, Ms. Brueggergosman’s career effortlessly embraces the broadest array of performance platforms and musical styles and genres.

      On the opera stage, her recent highlights include Giulietta and Antonia Les contes d’Hoffmann, Elettra Idomeneo, Madame Lidoine Dialogues des Carmélites, Jenny in Weill’s Mahagonny, Emilia Marty Věc Makropulos, Hannah in Miroslav Srnka’s Make No Noise, and Sister Rose in Jake Heggie’s Dead Man Walking while on the concert platform she has worked with the San Francisco Symphony and New World Symphony Orchestras and conductors such as Daniel Barenboim, Michael Tilson Thomas, Franz Welser-Möst, Sir Andrew Davis, Gustavo Dudamel and Daniel Harding.

      Measha began her career predominantly committed to the art of the song recital and has presented innovative programs at Carnegie Hall, Washington’s Kennedy Center, London’s Wigmore Hall, both the Konzerthaus and Musikverein in Vienna, Madrid’s Teatro Real, as well as at the Schwarzenberg, Edinburgh, Verbier and Bergen Festivals with celebrated collaborative pianists Justus Zeyen, Roger Vignoles, Julius Drake, and Simon Lepper.

      Her forthcoming highlights include her Australian debut at the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and in recital at the Sydney Opera House, a return to the Teatro Real, Madrid and to the Barbican, London with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, as well as performances with the Philadelphia Orchestra and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, and Vasily Petrenko.

      Her first recording for Deutsche Grammophon, Surprise, includes works by Schoenberg, Satie and Bolcom and is one of the most highly regarded debut albums of recent years. Her subsequent disc Night and Dreams, which features songs by Mozart, Brahms, Strauss, Schubert, Debussy, Duparc and Fauré won several awards and her recording of the Wesendonck Lieder with Franz Welser-Möst and the Cleveland Orchestra earned her a Grammy nomination.

      Off the stage, Measha is just as active: autumn 2017 sees the release of her memoir (published by HarperCollins); she appears regularly on primetime TV (most recently advocating on behalf of contemporary Canadian literature); and leading Canadian children across the country in song, in celebration of the nationwide campaign for music education.

      Measha Brueggergosman champions the education and involvement of new audiences and holds several honorary doctorates and ambassadorial titles with international charities.

      REEL ART 2018: HUMAN FLOW
      Jan 8 @ 7:00 pm
      INTERNATIONALLY RENOWNED ARTIST AI WEIWEI’S
      VISUALLY STUNNING DOCUMENTARY ABOUT
      ONE OF THE GREATEST ISSUES OF OUR TIME
      Over 65 million people around the world have been forced from their homes to escape
      famine, climate change and war in the greatest human displacement since World War
      II.
      Human Flow, an epic film journey led by the internationally renowned artist Ai Weiwei, gives a powerful visual expression to this massive human migration. The documentary elucidates both the staggering scale of the refugee crisis and its profoundly personal human impact. Captured over the course of an eventful year in 23 countries, the film follows a chain of urgent human stories that stretches across the globe in countries including Afghanistan, Bangladesh, France, Greece, Germany, Iraq, Israel, Italy, Kenya, Mexico, and Turkey.
      Human Flow is a witness to its subjects and their desperate search for safety, shelter and justice: from teeming refugee camps to perilous ocean crossings to barbed-wire borders; from dislocation and disillusionment to courage, endurance and adaptation; from the
      haunting lure of lives left behind to the unknown potential of the future. Human Flow comes at a crucial time when tolerance, compassion and trust are needed more than ever. This visceral work of cinema is a testament to the unassailable human spirit and poses one of the questions that will define this century: Will our global society emerge from fear, isolation, and self-interest and choose a path of openness, freedom, and respect for humanity?
      Participant Media and AC Films present Human Flow, a film directed by Ai Weiwei. The producers are Ai Weiwei, Chin-chin Yap and Heino Deckert. Andy Cohen of AC Films with Jeff Skoll and Diane Weyermann of Participant Media are the executive producers.

      DAVE GUNNING & JAMES KEELAGHAN
      Jan 14 @ 2:00 pm
      Dave Gunning

      “Truly, what makes Gunning so remarkable as an entertainer is his rare gift to be able to befriend the audience as a whole from the stage throughout the course of the concert. And, indeed, you do feel as though he’s as good of a friend as any after a night of songs, stories and lighthearted laughs.” – The GuardianCall it the silver lining in the cloud of a brutally cold Nova Scotia winter. When acclaimed folk singer/songwriter Dave Gunning decided it was time to make his 11th solo album, he found the bleak weather outside a blessing, not a curse. “We were literally snowed in, but the power was on and I was good to go,” he says of the making of that album, Lift.

      Eleven albums in, Dave Gunning has become a truly masterful songwriter, one who has earned real peer respect from such Canadian folk songwriting legends as Ron Hynes, David Francey, and James Keelaghan. “I grew up listening to people like Ron Hynes,” says Dave. “I look up to them but then it hits me sometimes that I’m their peer and they like my stuff too. It’s a weird headspace, flipping from being a fan to being a peer.”

       

      James Keelaghan
      Called Canada’s finest singer-songwriter by one of the most respected and lauded music journalists of the last 50 years, James Keelaghan is an artist who has proven to be a man for all seasons.
      As the calendar pages have turned, for almost a quarter of a century now, this poet laureate of the folk and roots music world has gone about his work with a combination of passion, intent and intensity, and curiosity.
      Fusing his insatiable appetite for finding the next unique storyline Keelaghan also forges his pieces with brilliantly defined craftsmanship and a monogrammed artistic vision, making him one of the most distinctive and readily identifiable voices of not only the Canadian scene, but as a member of the international singer-songwriter community.
      Armed with a songbook that has enlightened and enthralled, and been embraced, by audiences around the world, Keelaghan’s life as an artist is one that is a perpetual journey on so many levels.

      SUSAN AGLUKARK
      Jan 28 @ 7:30 pm

      THIS CONCERT IS SOLD OUT!!!

      Nunavut’s first ever Juno Award winning Inuk singer/songwriter, Susan calls herself the accidental artist. Susan grew up in Arviat, Nunavut and with “no musical orthodoxy” to draw from, Susan’s early years were spent learning as she was headlining.

      Susan’s early writing (The Arctic Rose-1992) was a series of songs drawn from the thing she had left, a life of uncertainty. The past 25 years and the following 7 albums has seen Susan set on a path of personal discoveries, cultural reconnections and personal healing, a very different path than the one she imagined when she left her home. In her singing/songwriting career, Susan is most proud about reaching a place in  her life where she knows she is right where she belongs, singing/songwriting and falling in love with creating.

      Susan has garnered 3 Juno awards, received The Order of Canada in 2005 and most recently was awarded the Governor Generals Lifetime Artistic Achievement Award (June-2016).

      Susan has performed for HRH Queen Elizabeth, Jean Chrétien, Brian Mulroney, Nelson Mandela, Billy Graham and The Countess Of Wessex. Susan is founder and chair of the Arctic Rose Foundation and is an Advisor on the Collateral Damage Project.

      REEL ART 2018: THE ARTIST IS PRESENT
      Feb 5 @ 7:00 pm

      Seductive, fearless, and outrageous, Marina Abramovic has been redefining what art is for nearly forty years. Using her own body as a vehicle, pushing herself beyond her physical and mental limits–and at times risking her life in the process–she creates performances that challenge, shock, and move us. Through her and with her, boundaries are crossed, consciousness expanded, and art as we know it is reborn. She is, quite simply, one of the most compelling artists of our time. — (C) Music Box Films

      PADDINGTON 2 finds Paddington happily settled with the Brown family in Windsor Gardens, where he has become a popular member of the community, spreading joy and marmalade wherever he goes. While searching for the perfect present for his beloved Aunt Lucy’s hundredth birthday, Paddington spots a unique pop-up book in Mr. Gruber’s antique shop, and embarks upon a series of odd jobs to buy it. But when the book is stolen, it’s up to Paddington and the Browns to unmask the thief… Helmed by twice BAFTA nominated director Paul King, PADDINGTON 2 is co-produced by multi award-winning David Heyman / Heyday Films (producer of all eight of the HARRY POTTER films, GRAVITY, THE BOY IN THE STRIPED PYJAMAS, FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM) and StudioCanal, who will also distribute in the UK, France, Germany, Australia and New Zealand. PADDINGTON is based on the best-selling and internationally adored series of children’s stories by British author Michael Bond, which have sold more than 35 million copies worldwide, been translated into over 40 languages and captured the imagination of children and adults around the globe.

      LADY BIRD – Oscar Presentation

      King’s Film Society Presents:

      Lady Bird
      USA
      1h 34min
      Comedy/Drama

      In Lady Bird, Greta Gerwig reveals herself to be a bold new cinematic voice with her directorial debut, excavating both the humor and pathos in the turbulent bond between a mother and her teenage daughter. Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) fights against but is exactly like her wildly loving, deeply opinionated and strong-willed mom (Laurie Metcalf), a nurse working tirelessly to keep her family afloat after Lady Bird’s father (Tracy Letts) loses his job. Set in Sacramento, California in 2002, amidst a rapidly shifting American economic landscape, Lady Bird is an affecting look at the relationships that shape us, the beliefs that define us, and the unmatched beauty of a place called home.

      Review from The New York Times:
Greta Gerwig’s ‘Lady Bird’ Is Big-Screen Perfection

      “You want to give thanks for how wonderful it is, how wise and funny and full of grace.” – Wall Street Journal
