NOW, VOYAGER with Bette Davis: Classic Film Fest

NOW, VOYAGER with Bette Davis: Classic Film Fest

King’s Theatre’s Classic Film Fest continues with NOW, VOYAGER, the great 1942 romance starring Bette Davis

 

 
 Nervous spinster Charlotte Vale (Bette Davis) is stunted from growing up under the heel of her puritanical Boston Brahmin mother (Gladys Cooper), and remains convinced of her own unworthiness until a kindly psychiatrist (Claude Rains) gives her the confidence to venture out into the world on a South American cruise. On board, she finds her footing with the help of an unhappily married man (Paul Henreid). Their thwarted love affair may help Charlotte break free of her mother’s grip—but will she find fulfillment as well as independence? Made at the height of Davis’s reign as the queen of the woman’s picture and bolstered by an Oscar-winning Max Steiner score, Now, Voyager is a melodrama for the ages, both a rapturous Hollywood romance and a poignant saga of self-discovery.

DAVE GUNNING

DAVE GUNNING

SOLD OUT!

Dave Gunning is best defined as a master craftsman. Over the course of 23 years and 11 earlier albums, the Nova Scotian folk singer/songwriter has diligently sharpened his skills, developing into a poetic storyteller and emotionally convincing singer with few equals.

The fruits of those labours are now vividly on display in his latest collection of songs, Up Against The Sky. The relaxed and intimate feel of the record reflects its method of creation. “I focused a lot on tones and the vibe, rather than strategic parts on this one. Many of these tunes were sung and played at the same time, and that prevented me from being able to go back and edit, forcing a little more honesty.”

FODAR: PROGRAM ONE – LIVE ON STAGE AT KING’S THEATRE

Program 1 showcases an eclectic mix of works including Dancing in the Third Act, and international award-winning dancer Sarah Murphy in acclaimed choreographer, teacher and dance historian Carol Anderson’s powerful classic, Allegro Mysterioso (1983). Also on the Program, Dawn Shepherd and Ryan Gray of Breaking Circus perform a stunning new straps duet.

 

Dancing in the Third Act

FODAR brings back the production that started it all. The Company of Angels returns in Dancing in the Third Act (2013). The work runs on all four nights in both Program 1 and 2. Choreographed by Randy Glynn, this powerful and thoroughly engaging work was a hit with critics and audiences alike and toured to other Canadian dance festivals.  Working with dancers ranging in age from 65 to 80+, Glynn has created a visually dynamic full-length work that is a poignant, dramatic and whimsical look at the ups and downs (literally) of aging.
