CHASE PADGETT’s NASHVILLE HURRICANE
May 2 @ 7:30 pm

The rise, demise, and resurrection of the best damn guitar player you’ve never heard of; the Nashville Hurricane.

During the course of this 75 minute one man masterpiece the audience learns about Henry Waltrip (the Nashville Hurricane) from his humble trailer park beginnings alongside his white trash mother, Brenda to the crazy gigs on the road with his blues playing mentor, Tyrone. The stories and songs unfold into hilarious rants on love and music, a riveting tale involving the dark side of show biz, and blazing guitar work any audience is sure to rave about such as the finale; a one man acoustic ‘Devil Went Down to Georgia.’

A Curious Tale of Fingerpickin’ Fury

40 years ago a mysterious acoustic guitarist appeared from nowhere, conquered the music industry, and vanished without a trace… until now. Chase Padgett becomes a manager, a mother, a mentor, and the guitar prodigy himself as each one tells their side of the rise, demise, and resurrection of the best damn guitar player you’ve never heard of; the Nashville Hurricane.

THE PAPER BAG PRINCESS: THE MUSICAL
May 11 @ 7:00 pm

Action packed and filled with live music, singing, audience interaction, and adventure around every corner, this fun adaptation is a perfect fit for family audiences.

The Paper Bag Princess is an international classic. First published in 1980, written by famed Canadian author Robert Munsch, it is still one of the most popular children’s stories with over four million copies printed.  We are thrilled to be producing not only the story, but A MUSICAL! Book, music and lyrics by Joe Slabe (original concept Tara Blue), this adaptation is packed full of singing, live music and so much character, presented by TO BE DETERMINED THEATRE COMPANY.

At a time when gender stigma and stereotypes have become the forefront of conversations around the world we are so excited to bring this story to life again. A young female who utilizes resilience, resourcefulness, independence and compassion is the hero we are glad to be sharing with students this coming year. This classic tale has become more than just a fun bedtime story. It is a poignant reminder of the ideals we want reflected in our society and championed by the next generation!

XARA CHORAL THEATRE
Jun 8 @ 7:30 pm

Xara Choral Theatre is breaking the boundaries of choral performance. Weaving together contemporary choral singing, movement, lighting, and spoken word, their breakthrough performances tell stories that are transformative for audiences and performers alike.

Xara is Canada’s leading creator of narrative-based choral theatre performances. In a professional, collaborative environment, the ensemble gives life to sung stories that are a feast for the senses and heart-felt explorations of identity, community, and culture.

Based in Kji’puktuk/Halifax on traditional Mi’kmaq territory, Xara was formed in 2007 when Artistic Director Christina Murray and a team of four women began a year-long process to create an ensemble that embodied their passion for music making, integrative arts, and community building. For its first ten season, choreographer Claire Leger served as associate artist and co-artistic director as the ensemble explored the boundaries of its interdisciplinary art form. Xara’s work has gained national and international recognition for its innovation in the genre, telling stories both true and mythical through a rich tapestry of challenging choral repertoire, movement, lighting, spoken word, and visual elements.

Xara’s creative team and many acclaimed collaborators have led the group to appearances at Festival 500, the Atlantic National Event of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, the Titanic 100 commemoration, and 14-show tour of Ontario, to name a few. In July 2013, Canada’s national choral competition proclaimed Xara the top women’s choir in the country. In 2015, the group released their first full-length album, Here on These Branches, which was nominated for a 2016 East Coast Music Award and a Nova Scotia Music Award for Classical Recording of the Year.
