“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!

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.

The Kitchen Party, a fundraiser for King’s Theatre, is a celebration of local talent hosted by SUSAN CROWE,. It is fast becoming a favourite summer happening in Annapolis Royal. This year’s event will be a very special celebration of the legacy of the late, much loved musician, DUNCAN DRAPER

Susan Crowe, one of Canada’s great singer-songwriters, brings her rich voice, wicked sense of humour, and generous heart back to the King’s Theatre stage where she will offer up a mix of her own classic songs in between showcase performances by local musicians.

We are excited to welcome the one and only JP CORMIER back to King’s Theatre to kick off the 11th Annual Tournament of King’s!
At the age of 5, JP began teaching himself to play the guitar. At 9, he won his first guitar competition against 30 other players 4 times his age. By his mid teens, he was playing a variety of stringed instruments, including the fiddle, mandolin and banjo. He recorded his first album of bluegrass instrumentals at 16, which led to 10 years of living and performing in the US. His time there included many memorable nights at the Grand Ole Opry with artists such as Waylon Jennings, Marty Stuart, Earl Scruggs, Bill Monroe, Charlie Louvin and Vince Gill.
Since returning to Canada, JP has released over a dozen award-winning albums. His impressive body of work has earned him a loyal fan base and multiple award nominations and wins. He continues to dazzle and delight audiences while performing 250 shows a year.
