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…

MELODY A. JOHNSON presents PERSON OF INTEREST
Nov 21 @ 7:30 pm
MELODY A. JOHNSON presents PERSON OF INTEREST
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.

Seating is full capacity. Proof of full vaccination and face masks are required.

King’s Theatre is committed to making live performances accessible to all audiences. If the ticket price is a barrier, bursaries are available. Please get in touch by contacting the Box Office: boxoffice@kingstheatre.ca or 902-532-7704.

ROSE COUSINS

ROSE COUSINS

MULTIPLE JUNO & ECMA-WINNING, GRAMMY-NOMINATED NOVA SCOTIAN ARTIST ROSE COUSINS RETURN TO KING’S AT LAST

 

Her latest record, ‘Bravado’ is for those who struggle with loneliness and those wishing they had more time alone. It’s for those attempting to make their hearts go in more than one direction and those trying to make it go in just one. It’s for those who present a version of themselves to the world that doesn’t quite match how they feel inside. It’s for those who feel misunderstood or unseen. It’s for those who have a hard time saying what they feel, who hide or can’t let themselves off the hook. It’s for those asking, “is this it?” and questioning if the character they play in the movie of their lives is authentic or just a role they’ve accepted. It’s for those who have a hard time asking for help and for those desperate for and terrified of change.

For Cousins, this chapter is a personal and professional metamorphosis. She is in the producer chair, applying her years of experience, trusting her own ear and pulling thoughtfully from her network of talented colleagues.

The record is flanked by two distinct renditions of the same song, The Benefits of Being Alone/ The Reprise reinforcing the record’s examination of emotional duality. The record starts in bravado’s swagger then drops us into The Fraud which wrestles with the desire to stay hidden and be seen. The Time Being (Impending Mortality Awareness Society), reminds and invites us to pay attention to what’s most important, to be present. The album lifts to its highest level of hope and most pop production in The Return (Love Comes Back), solidifying Cousins’ collaborative nature by recruiting an international choir of friends to join in at the end. The Lullaby (My Oldest Love) written with Tim Baker (Hey Rosetta), touches the desperate need for affirmation, The Benediction, a yearning for acceptance.

Rose Cousins’ Bravado is the sound of a heart trying to open. It explores the complication of emotion, its irrational tendencies and its wisdom. It invites us to feel the courage it takes to be vulnerable.

Seating is full capacity. Proof of full vaccination and face masks are required.

THE LEGENDARY DOWNCHILD BLUES BAND

NEWSFLASH: The Band has rescheduled their Tour to next Spring! The new date for the show at King’s Theatre is May 1, 2022 at 7:30pm.

Tickets holders can use their tickets for the new date or request a full refund. Thanks for your patience, and we know it will be worth the wait!

After 18 albums, countless awards and wowing sold‐out audiences around the globe, THE LEGENDARY DOWNCHILD BLUES BAND are celebrating their 50th Anniversary this year with a brand‐new show featuring hits like “Flip, Flop & Fly,” as well as fan favourites and hidden gems from throughout their illustrious career.

Downchild will be joined on stage by some very special guests for this monumental performance, that will be announced shortly. With a stellar lineup of talent being assembled, sparks are sure to fly!

Downchild came to international prominence as the inspiration for Dan Aykroyd and the late John Belushi’s hit film, The Blues Brothers. In fact, two Downchild songs, “Shotgun Blues” and “(I Got Everything I Need) Almost” were even covered on The Blues Brothers’ 1978 multi‐platinum album Briefcase Full of Blues.

The band is lead by founder, Donnie “Mr. Downchild” Walsh on guitar and harmonica, singer Chuck Jackson, who also plays harmonica, tenor sax man Pat Carey, Michael Fonfara (who was a member of the early American rock supergroup Rhinoceros and Lou Reed’s band) plays keyboards, Gary Kendall on bass and drummer Mike Fitzpatrick.

With their signature jump‐blues style and infectious, soulful sound, Juno Award winners Downchild deliver a live performance that is second to none, and this special anniversary show is one ‐ not to be missed!

SPECIAL GUEST: The band is excited to announce 3X Maple Blues Award nominee Jenie Thai will join them for their King’sTheatre performance.

TICKETS: $60  + ticketing fee & hst

PLEASE NOTE: Once Nova Scotia enters Phase 5, proof of full vaccination will be required for patrons over the age of 12; face masks will be required until seated.
