UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG: Classic Film Fest

King’s Theatre’s Classic Film Fest continues with 1964 film THE UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG starring Catherine Deneuve (presented with English subtitles)

 
The angelically beautiful Catherine Deneuve was launched to stardom by this dazzling musical heart-tugger from Jacques Demy. She plays an umbrella-shop owner’s delicate daughter, glowing with first love for a handsome garage mechanic, played by Nino Castelnuovo. When the boy is shipped off to fight in Algeria, the two lovers must grow up quickly. Exquisitely designed in a kaleidoscope of colors, and told entirely through lilting songs by the great composer Michel Legrand, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg is one of the most revered and unorthodox movie musicals of all time.

*Seats have are been marked to accommodate physical distancing of 6 feet. Face masks are required. Thank you!

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.

Nov 12 @ 7:30 pm
KOQM: written & performed by shalan joudry

Koqm, the world premiere of a new theatrical piece by L’nu/Mi’kmaw storyteller shalan joudry

 

Koqm is a journey through time and land to experience the voices of fictional L’nu (Mi’kmaw) women. Throughout the course of the show we hear and meet the women who might have spoken and walked through one area of forest over centuries. Guided by the strength of an ancient tree (“koqm”), the women’s voices share with us their personal stories of grief, humour and resiliency through a unique theatrical performance that includes story-telling, poetry, dance and song.

  • Written and performed by: shalan joudry
  • Director: Ken Schwartz
  • Mask & Movement: Ann-Marie Kerr
  • Production: Two Planks and a Passion Theatre, Nestuita’si Storytelling, and El’tuek Qokom
  • Movement consultants: Susanne Chui & Sarah Prosper
  • Lighting Design: MacKenzie Cornfield
  • Graphics: design by MacKenzie Cornfield, drawing by Milidow Joudry-Martel (after Mi’kmaw pertroglyphs)

Shalan is an oral storyteller, poet, actor, playwright, podcast producer, as well as a cultural interpreter from L’sitkuk (Bear River) Mi’kmaq Community. Shalan’s unique voice and use of Mi’kmaq/L’nu and English words brings language and art together.

In 2019, King’s Theatre presented the stage premier of shalan’s two-person play Elaputiek to a sold-out house. We are thrilled to welcome her back to our stage with this new production.
