The smash hit one-man theatrical masterpiece comes to King’s! Chase Padgett is a virtuoso musician-actor-comedian who tells the tale of a mysterious acoustic guitarist who conquered the music industry and vanished without a trace.


Padgett plays manager, mother, mentor, and the guitar prodigy himself. Blazing guitar work and a riveting tale about the dark side of show biz.


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.

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 one man acoustic ‘Devil Went Down to Georgia”.

Chase Padgett becomes the manager, the mother, the 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.

“If this isn’t worth 75 minutes of your time than I don’t know what is.” – Houston Press

Note earlier start time of 5:00pm!!

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!

Coco’s workshops create a space safe for challenging our comfort zones and enjoying a truly connected experience. Together we will explore harmony, groove, blend and our creative sides.

“Since releasing Wonderland (fall 2016) I have had the joy of visiting and singing with dozens of choirs across Canada and beyond. It all started in the fall of 2014 when I uploaded a video to YouTube singing a song I had just written called “The River”. Within months, choirs had started singing this song and I hadn’t even stepped into the studio yet!


I knew that I wanted to visit and sing with as many of these choirs as possible.And so I have been, and loving every minute of it: To show up in each new town and be immediately embraced by a community of people who sing together is an incredible thing. I have always loved to sing for people, but to sing with them is an even greater joy. I have found a new passion and my new calling. If I haven’t met you yet, I would love to!” – Coco

The concert is a fundraiser for No Time for That Anti-Bullying Society.

FIVE SEASONS: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf
Jun 18 @ 7:30 pm

Special Event Celebrating National Garden Week

Doors open at 6:30pm for wine & cheese; displays from local garden groups; door prizes.


“For me, garden design isn’t just about plants, it is about emotion, atmosphere, a sense of contemplation. You try to move people with what you do. You look at this, and it goes deeper than what you see. It reminds you of something in the genes — nature, or the longing for nature.”
– Piet Oudolf

Thanks to our partners from the Historic Gardens, Champlain Garden Club, Bunchberry, Thexton’s, Bainton’s Books, Nikian Enterprises, and Oakhaven Farm.


After completing a feature documentary on New York’s High Line, award-winning filmmaker Thomas Piper met the inspirational designer and plantsman, Piet Oudolf, and the idea for a new project was born. The documentary, FIVE SEASONS: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf, immerses viewers in Oudolf’s work and takes us inside his creative process, from his beautifully abstract sketches, to theories on beauty, to the ecological implications of his ideas.

Intimate discussions take place through all fours seasons in Piet’s own gardens at Hummelo, and on visits to his signature public works in New York, Chicago, and the Netherlands, as well as to the far-flung locations that inspire his genius, including desert wildflowers in West Texas and post-industrial forests in Pennsylvania.

As a narrative thread, the film also follows Oudolf as he designs and installs a major new garden at Hauser & Wirth Somerset, a gallery and arts center in Southwest England, a garden he considers his best work yet.

Piet Oudolf has radically redefined what gardens can be. As Rick Darke, the famous botanist, says to Piet in the film, “your work teaches us to see what what we have been unable to see.” Through poetic cinematography and unique access, FIVE SEASONS will reveal all that Piet sees, and celebrate all that we as viewers have been unable to see.



Special Film Event Tickets:

$14 Adult, $13 with Film Buff Card, $8 Youth. All prices include HST.

Doors will open at 6:30pm for wine & cheese. General admission seating, tickets at the door.

NUA is an innovative, award-winning, Toronto-based trad trio. Bringing a fresh and unique sound to traditional music, they create their own distinctive original compositions, balanced with traditional and contemporary tunes drawn from Irish and Scottish traditions.


NUA consists of three award-winning members: fiddle player James Law, guitarist Graeme McGillivray and bodhrán player Jacob McCauley. The interaction between the three is what really makes the music shine, whether it be their soaring melodies or tasteful grooves.

The original tune-writing of NUA gives their music its groundbreaking, adventurous quality, as demonstrated on their debut album BOLD and follow-up album FLOW. Progressive yet hinting at the traditions of the past, NUA’s compositions will take you on an exhilarating journey, creating an atmosphere and mood unique to the listener. The trio is also well known for their exciting incorporation of odd time signatures and polyrhythms, which give the music an electrifying lift and spontaneity.

“NUA have delivered two of the finest Canadian Celtic roots albums of recent years, each one bursting with fresh and exciting ideas, magnifying the sonic scope of Scottish and Irish music.” (Penguin Eggs Magazine)
