The Annapolis District Drama Group is back on stage!!
Having taken, of necessity, a sojourn into page-to-screen screenplay productions over the past 18 months of pandemic, the time now seems right for us to be able to venture back onto the boards of King’s Theatre. Carefully, and with an abundance of caution, just as we have right through these trying times.
And for our inspiration we needed to look no further than the Complete Works of our much esteemed home-grown Bard, Wayne Currie, whose anthology of Short Plays, eponymously entitled “A Dash of Currie”, furnished us with all the scripts for this production.
When the Call for Actors went out we had envisioned that six 10-minute plays would be performed. Such was the enthusiasm and willingness of our troupe to be involved that we found we had to ‘stretch the envelope’, and so we bring to you SEVEN plays instead!
And with the influx of new folks moving to the area over the past months we are delighted to welcome new faces to our Cast, who are thrilled to be bringing their skills and experience to our local stage, acting alongside many of our familiar and much-loved regulars.
With Simon Bonnington at the helm as Producer/Director, and an innovative minimalist set that utilises King’s Theatre’s brand-new stage-technology, we have a show that’s filled to the brim with mirth & hilarity, as well as some thought-provoking moments, prompting you to ponder what is really important in life…
A comedy drama about a good neighbour gone bad… a shocking tale of neighourhood warfare told with candour and an edgy sense of fun.
King’s audiences will remember Melody A.Johnson for her award-winning play Miss Caledonia.
“Person of Interest”, is a topical tale, about a good, law-abiding citizen like me who hoped to volunteer and so applied for a police background check. It was at that point when I discovered I was a Person of Interest…courtesy of some bad neighbours next door. It was their final act of retaliation.
Debuting in 2018, Person of Interest has been delighting audiences across the country. Those who enjoy the wave of stand-alone storytelling like CBC’s Vinyl Café, and National Public Radio’s The Moth podcasts, will crave this yarn spinning, edgy, comic tale.
“Melody A. Johnson proves once again, she is the kook supreme of the Canadian stage…I truly would pay money to see Johnson read the phone book…” — Richard Ouzonian, The Toronto Star
“Melody A. Johnson is a unique talent, a slyly hilarious performer, and a very likeable presence on stage without ever seeming anything less than genuine.” — David Mann, Evergreen Cultural Centre, Coquitlam B.C.
“Melody tells the story so beautifully that there are moments when she has the audience completely on her side even while in the same breath, we’re questioning her sanity.” —– Danny Harvey, The Rose Theatre, Brampton, Ont.
