THE STANFIELDS
Mar 13 @ 7:30 pm

The Stanfields are a multiple award-winning five-piece Folk’n’Roll band based in Halifax, Canada. Combining Rock music with solid nods to Celtic and Americana – they play what they want, sing what they feel, and leave nothing on the table.   

Formed in 2008, The Stanfields have since released 5 albums and toured extensively throughout North America and Europe, sharing the stage with Queens of the Stone Age, Flogging Molly, Frank Turner and Dropkick Murphys among many. Coming as no surprise to the band’s sizeable international fanbase,

The Stanfields have taken a “predictably-unpredictable” turn with their upcoming recording “Classic Fadeout” (January 2020 on GroundSwell/Believe), seeing the band draw upon relatively gentler influences such as The Band, Stray Gators-era Neil Young and 70’s west coast country rock and infusing them into their distinct, swaggering brand of storytelling folk’n’roll.

Jon Landry – Vox, Guitar, Harmonica,
Calen Kinney – Violin or Fiddle, Bouzouki, Vox

Philip Glass’ AKHNATEN – Met Opera
Mar 22 @ 2:00 pm

Director Phelim McDermott tackles another one of Philip Glass’s masterpieces, following the now-legendary Met staging of Satyagraha. Star countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo is the title pharaoh, the revolutionary ruler who transformed ancient Egypt, with the striking mezzo-soprano J’Nai Bridges in her Met debut as his wife, Nefertiti. To match the opera’s hypnotic, ritualistic music, McDermott has created an arresting vision that includes a virtuosic company of acrobats and jugglers. Karen Kamensek conducts in her Met debut.

Please be aware that this production contains some full-frontal nudity, which may not be suitable for young audiences.

This production was originally created by English National Opera and LA Opera

In collaboration with Improbable

Estimated Run Time: 3 hrs 30 mins

Sung In Various, Met Titles In English

THE LADYKILLERS
Mar 27 @ 7:30 pm

THE ANNAPOLIS DISTRICT DRAMA GROUP, Directed by Simon Bonnington, presents THE LADYKILLERS

Main Cast: Louis Harvey (David Witherow), Professor Marcus (George Clairmont), Harry Robinson (Ryan Hebert), Major Courtney (Bliss Om Rae), Mrs Wilberforce (Nancy Anderson), One-Round (Tim Danttouze). Photo by ANDREW TOLSON

Posing as a string quintet of amateur musicians, Professor Marcus and his gang of inept ne’er-do-well villains rent rooms in the lopsided house of an elderly widow, the sweet and eccentric Mrs Wilberforce. The crooks plot to involve her, unwittingly, in Marcus’ brilliantly conceived security-van heist.

The police are left stumped, but Mrs Wilberforce tumbles to the truth of their ruse and Marcus concludes that there is only one way to keep the old lady quiet. With only her parrot, General Gordon, to help her, Mrs Wilberforce is alone with five desperate men. But who will be forced to face the music?

Based upon the classic Ealing Studios 1955 movie that starred Alec Guiness, Herbert Lom and Peter Sellers, the stage adaptation of The Ladykillers was written by Graham Linehan in 2011 and premièred at the Liverpool Playhouse (England) later that year, with Peter Capaldi taking on the mantle as the insane but brilliant Marcus.

The play had its North American premiere last year at the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Using a innovate set design which integrates two storeys within, as well as roof top, and rail-tracks below, Director Simon Bonnington is delighted to bring this play to the stage of King’s Theatre with the Annapolis District Drama Group – only the second production of the show on this continent!

ALL ABOUT EVE – National Theatre
Apr 5 @ 2:00 pm

Gillian Anderson (X-Files, NT Live: A Streetcar Named Desire) and Lily James (Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again) lead in All About Eve, broadcast live to cinemas from the West End in London.

All About Eve tells the story of Margo Channing. Legend. True star of the theatre. The spotlight is hers, always has been. But now there’s Eve. Her biggest fan. Young, beautiful Eve. The golden girl, the girl next door. But you know all about Eve…don’t you…?

Lifting the curtain on a world of jealousy and ambition, this new production, from one of the world’s most innovative theatre directors, Ivo van Hove (Network, NT Live: A View from the Bridge), asks why our fascination with celebrity, youth and identity never seems to get old.

Adapted by Ivo van Hove from the 1950 Twentieth Century Fox film by Joseph L Mankiewicz and the play “The Wisdom of Eve” by Mary Orr. Ivo van Hove directs this new stage version with set and lighting design from Jan Versweyveld, costume design by An D’Huys and music from double Mercury Prize-winner PJ Harvey, alongside Tom Gibbons’ sound design. Casting is by Julia Horan CDG.

by Joseph L Mankiewicz. Adapted and directed for the stage by Ivo van Hove

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!
