A CHRISTMAS CAROL

A joint “stage to screen” production of the Annapolis District Drama Group and Young Company Productions, filmed on location in Annapolis Royal. Directed by Simon Bonnington.

CLICK HERE TO BUY TICKETS.

 

Following the widely-acclaimed success this summer of their first ever Stage-to-Screen production, the Annapolis District Drama Group is joining forces with Young Company Productions to create a family-favourite Christimas-time spectacle that is certain to entertain: a screen-play version of “A Christmas Carol”, by Charles Dickens. – pandemic-willing, to be screened at King’s Theatre the weekend before Christmas!

With a cast numbering 55 this is probably the largest theatrical production ever in Annapolis Royal, and that in a time of constraint due to pandemic restrictions. However, this well-loved tale lends itself quite easily to performance in line with current Provincial guidelines. The screen-play is a newly-crafted adaptation by Simon Bonnington, straight from Dickens original text, with Covid very much in mind, and gives the opportunity for several small groups of actors to rehearse and perform the different scenes quite separately from each other.

Inspired by their recent experience of on-location filming, “A Christmas Carol” is being rehearsed and filmed in and around several of the historic buildings in our communities. The O’Dell House Museum & the Sinclair Inn Museum are being made available by the kind cooperation of the Annapolis Heritage Society; and likewise the Board of the Tupperville School Museum are enthusiastically welcoming, allowing the actors to immerse themselves in these genuine Victorian settings!

The Queen Anne Inn, the Carlisle House Inn, and the Historic Gardens, as well as other well-known buildings and establishments, are also playing host to the production.

Screenings are scheduled for December (Thursday 17th 7.00pm,) Friday 18th 7.00pm, Saturday 19th 7.00pm & Sunday 20th 2pm

SUPERNOVA
Mar 5 @ 7:00 pm

In this moving modern love story, Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci star as a couple revisiting England’s Lake District after a devastating diagnosis.

“Tucci and Firth have never been better than they are here” –Michael O’Sullivan, The Washington Post

In this modern love story, Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci star as a couple struggling with a diagnosis of early-onset dementia. Sam (Firth) and Tusker (Tucci) have been together 20 years, and are driving through England’s Lake District in their old camper van reconnecting with friends, family, and old haunts in the wake of Tusker’s life-changing illness. Sam has placed his life on hold in order to act as his partner’s full-time caregiver, and the men’s time together has become especially sacred. Their trip is a last opportunity to travel while Tusker is still able — but secrets are revealed, plans unravel, and their love is tested like never before.

Writer-director Harry Macqueen (Hinterland) directs Supernova with “consistent care … [and] here that care pays off to devastating effect” (Glenn Kenny, The New York Times).

CYRANO DE BERGERAC – National Theatre
Mar 7 @ 2:00 pm
CYRANO DE BERGERAC - National Theatre

James McAvoy (X-Men, Atonement) returns to the stage in an inventive new adaptation of Cyrano de Bergerac, broadcast live to cinemas from the West End in London.

Fierce with a pen and notorious in combat, Cyrano almost has it all – if only he could win the heart of his true love Roxane. There’s just one big problem: he has a nose as huge as his heart. Will a society engulfed by narcissism get the better of Cyrano – or can his mastery of language set Roxane’s world alight?

Edmond Rostand’s masterwork is adapted by Martin Crimp, with direction by Jamie Lloyd (Betrayal). This classic play will be brought to life with linguistic ingenuity to celebrate Cyrano’s powerful and resonant resistance against overwhelming odds.

A production from The Jamie Lloyd Company.

A GLITCH IN THE MATRIX
Mar 13 @ 7:00 pm

What if we are living in a simulation, and the world as we know it is not real? To tackle this mind-bending idea, acclaimed filmmaker Rodney Ascher (ROOM 237, THE NIGHTMARE) uses a noted speech from Philip K. Dick to dive down the rabbit hole of science, philosophy, and conspiracy theory. Leaving no stone unturned in exploring the unprovable, the film uses contemporary cultural touchstones like THE MATRIX, interviews with real people shrouded in digital avatars, and a wide array of voices, expert and amateur alike. If simulation theory is not science fiction but fact, and life is a video game being played by some unknowable entity, then who are we, really? A GLITCH IN THE MATRIX attempts to find out.

FILMMAKING WORKSHOP with Nance Ackerman: Day One
Mar 15 @ 11:00 am – 4:00 pm

DOCUMENTARY FILMMAKING WORKSHOP FOR YOUTH

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER FOR BOTH DAYS

  • DAY ONE, Monday March 15, 11am-4pm
  • DAY TWO, Tuesday March 16, 11am-4pm

Make a short documentary film and see it on the big screen! 

Making documentary films isn’t easy — whether you’re in a war zone or in your back yard – but it’s one of the most rewarding jobs on the planet!  A powerful documentary film or web video can bring life to a story, social issue, or celebration like no other. Films can move minds, alter policy, change lives and expose injustices – but it has to be done with purpose, mindfulness and compassion in order to be effective.

In this two-day workshop (March 15 & 16) we will learn how to explore issues, story and themes through storyboarding, cinematography, editing, soundscape and music. Breaking out into roles – director, cinematographer, soundperson, editor, etc. — we’ll  work together to create  3-5 minute short documentaries, that address issues that matter to you! And we’ll have an awesome time doing it! :).  Films made in this workshop will be screening at King’s Theatre on Friday March 19 at 7pm.

  • Ages: 12-18
  • Cost for 2 days: $40 (plus HST & ticketing fees)
  • King’s Theatre aims to ensure no one is excluded due to cost. Please get in touch regarding bursaries.
  • REQUIRED to bring: Your own camera phone & a brown bag lunch.
  • Workshops will take place at the theatre and on site in the community, so dress for the weather.
  • Deadline to sign up: March 12.

About the instructor:
Celebrated documentary photographer and filmmaker, Nance Ackerman has been making images and film around the world for over 30 years. Her documentary photography work has been featured in Time, Newsweek, Canadian Geographic, New York Times, and Canada’s national newspaper, the Globe and Mail and she was the assistant photo editor at the Montreal Gazette for several years before going freelance. Her work has been described as ‘artivism’ – creating art to create change. Striving to build bridges of understanding, common ground and a global awareness of human behaviour on this planet, her work quickly grew too large for the daily news cycle. After being dragged across the barricade while covering/protesting at Oka, she started on a journey of discovery of her Mohawk heritage. The result, her photographs of First Nations women, have been exhibited at the Aperture Foundation in New York and the Smithsonian Institution, in Washington, DC. Following that, Ackerman’s book, Womankind: Faces of Change Around the World – a collection of portraits and essays of women activists around the world – was released in 2003.

In 2005 Ackerman turned her eye to directing social documentary films. Her first film, the National Film Board feature documentary Cottonland, brought in numerous awards and three Gemini Nominations, and shone a light on the connection between the world of opioid drug addiction and post industrial malaise. Since then she has made several more award-winning documentaries and an animated short. Her collaborative feature documentary film, Conviction, went inside Canada’s women’s prisons to imagine alternatives to incarceration through art and music and premiered at Hot Docs International Film Festival. Conviction won her, and her co-directors, a National Writer’s Guild Award for Best Documentary script. Her latest film Behind the Bhangra Boys takes an intimate look at joyous activism through five Sikh Bhangra dancers and new Canadians. Ackerman is now developing several projects from Afghanistan to Mexico that explore the power of the human spirit behind many seemingly overwhelming global issues. She has a masters degree in New Media and also taught for seven years at the University of Kings College, in Halifax. She now offers International photography workshops around the world. Ackerman also composes soundtracks with her partner, Jamie Alcorn, at their studio, Heartstring Productions in Tupperville in the Annapolis valley.
