RURAL RENAISSANCE: How the Citizens of Annapolis Royal Reinvented Canada's Oldest Town

SOLD OUT!

 
The story of the Annapolis Royal Development Commission and its projects

 

 In 1975, King’s Theatre was a dump, but it didn’t stand out because it matched all the other shabby and dilapidated buildings in Annapolis Royal’s downtown business district.  Its restoration in the early 1980s acted as a catalyst in the economic revitalization of our Town.

Come see this hour-long documentary by visual journalist Andrew Tolson and celebrate the story of the Annapolis Royal Development Commission and the people who made it happen!

Brought to you by the Rural Renaissance Project.

KEONTÉ BEALS & BAND

KEONTÉ BEALS & BAND

R&B powerhouse KEONTÉ BEALS controls the pulse of an entire crowd from the moment he takes the stage.

 

With a live energy that can be compared to no other, Beals’s was named  the African Nova Scotian Music Association’s Artist of the Year 2020 and Music Nova Scotia’s African Nova Scotian Artist of the Year 2019—not to mention multiple East Coast Music Award nominations. To put it plainly, the North Preston, Nova Scotia-based singer, songwriter and performer is a force to be felt—and the entire east coast of Canada knows it.

North Preston has a historic lineage of growing the biggest voices in Nova Scotia through its strong gospel scene and church community. Beals keeps this tradition going with his own powerhouse pipes, which first wowed crowds when, at 16, he gave his solo debut at his home church. Pivoting into an early 2000s-influenced R&B sound as he began to create his own music, Beals’s colorful body of work highlights the range of his talent and musicality. He has a voice that breaks generational boundaries, backed by a sonic palette that draws easy comparison to the work of Usher, Anthony Hamilton and Elijah Blake.

Beals “is a beautiful singer with key skills to match, and he’s only just out of his teens” (The Coast) and “everything he does revolves around music” (Halifax Magazine). His upcoming debut album (due summer 2020) and its lead single—the mental health anthem “KING”, which shreds toxic masculinity over a red-hot beat—prove it.

Seats are limited to accommodate physical distancing of 6 feet. Face masks are required. Please note that once Nova Scotia reaches Phase 5, seating will expand to full capacity.

Fellini’s 8 1/2: Classic Film Fest

Fellini's 8 1/2: Classic Film Fest

King’s Theatre’s Classic Film Fest concludes with the essential 1973 Fellini film 8 1/2 … one of the greatest films ever made

 
One of the greatest films about film ever made, Federico Fellini’s marks the moment when the director’s always-personal approach to filmmaking fully embraced self-reflexivity, pioneering a stream-of-consciousness style that darts exuberantly among flashbacks, dream sequences, and carnivalesque reality, and turning one man’s artistic crisis into a grand epic of the cinema. Marcello Mastroianni plays Guido Anselmi, a director whose new project is collapsing around him, along with his life, as he struggles against creative block and helplessly juggles the women in his life—including Anouk Aimée, Sandra Milo, and Claudia Cardinale. An early working title for was The Beautiful Confusion, and Fellini’s masterpiece is exactly that: a shimmering dream, a circus, and a magic act.

KITBAG THEATRE presents ‘TUESDAYS & SUNDAYS’
Oct 22 @ 7:30 pm
KITBAG THEATRE presents 'TUESDAYS & SUNDAYS'

Small town. Young lovers. Big secret.

PEI company Kitbag Theatre brings their production of Tuesdays & Sundays to King’s, a gripping piece of Island history expertly told. Starring Melissa MacKenzie and Jacob Hemphill, and directed by Rebecca Parent.

 
William and Mary agreed to meet on a Sunday; they needed to talk. On the following Tuesday, Mary disappeared.Tuesdays & Sundays is a play inspired by the true story of William Millman and Mary Tuplin, and the tragedy that shook the quiet community of Margate, Prince Edward Island, in 1887. Written by Canadian playwrights Daniel Arnold and Medina Hahn, this critically-acclaimed play has toured extensively across Canada and internationally. Kitbag Theatre’s lauded, sold-out production at the Watermark Theatre in 2020 was the piece’s PEI premiere.

 

We first find William and Mary as blank slates. The young lovers recall, one piece at a time, their lives, their home, each other. We watch them rediscover their youthful love for each other, relive their eager, reckless courtship. Their sweet country romance, however, quickly takes a wrong turn. With each memory recalled, the thread of their story begins to unravel, quickly, almost faster than they can keep up with. They can only watch and breathe as inevitability takes hold.

 

“This production of Tuesdays & Sundays is SUPERB. With an incredible script and two outstanding actors the story comes to life with their powerful, deft characterizations and Rebecca Parent’s brilliant and creative direction. The piece flows and mesmerizes. You feel you are in the hands of master-storytellers from beginning to end. It is one of the best pieces of theatre I have seen in a long time.” — Jan Rudd, theatre professional

“Simply put, Kitbag’s Tuesdays & Sundays is a performance too incredible to miss. A must-see.” — Hon. Dennis King, Premier of PEI

*Seats have are been marked to accommodate physical distancing of 6 feet. Face masks are required.  Please note that once Nova Scotia enters Phase 5, King’s Theatre will return to full capacity seating.
